Basics: Babies add weight/grow fastest in the first few months but slow as they get older.The best way to monitor whether the rate is on target is to have her standard measurements done during well visits at her doctors office. There they are trained to do the proper measurements & weights (stripped to diaper) which is added to a standardized growth chart. You don't want to treat normal, so find out first
