Weight Calculator for infants is useful for calculating the ideal weight of your baby during various stages of its development. This calculator calculates the weight of children from their birth up to three years.
Babies come in different shapes and sizes; some maybe slim and tall whereas others maybe chubby and short. Whatever be their size or shape, babies are definitely special and unique and taking care of their health is the top priority for all parents.

Parents usually compare their babies growth with other babies of the same age. As the baby gains height and weight, their normal growth pattern can be compared with standard growth charts. Every baby should have their own chart maintained by the parents. This is a simple but effective method to the growth and health of the baby.
