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

Parents usually compare their child's growth with other children of the same age. There are comprehensive growth charts available that assess a child's height, weight, and head size as they change over the first few years of their growing up. Keeping your own chart of these parameters is a simple method to monitor the growth and health of your child.
