There is a normal : range from 5th-95th %ile for infant weight, recumbent length & head circumference for age. Gender-specific growth charts are used for these parameters + weight-for-length. Pediatricians use growth charts to monitor for normal, accelerated or decreased velocity of growth of each parameter along any %ile, as typical growth & development tell us more than any fancy test that a baby is doing well.
