The Importance of Monitoring Growth

Child Developmental Milestones & Growth

Is your child growing at their full potential? What is the optimal height & weight for different stages of your child respective to their age? Why is close monitoring of your child’s growth & development stages so important? These are some common questions parents often have in mind.
