In brief: See below:
Exact measurements are not as important as changes in height- weight in corellating w/health status.
Knowing basic growth parameters with changes over time are extremely important for analyzing your child's growth patterns. Those that do not follow general patterns may do so for many reasons such as prematurity, chronic illness, or genetic constitution. No supplements; see your pediatrician.
