Quick Answers...


How much will my baby grow during the first year?

On average, babies grow 10 inches in height and triple their birth weight during the first year of life. By age 1, children's growth begins to slow down, but no child grows at a perfectly steady rate through childhood. Mini growth spurts are very common.
