This chart has been designed for plotting growth measurements of preterm and/or low birthweight infants from birth to the age of 2 years, after which the UK-WHO 0-4 years charts can be used. For healthy preterm babies born at or after 37 weeks gestation the UK-WHO 0-4 years charts can be used from birth, unless there is need for detailed growth assessment. The chart is also suitable for term neonates or young infants requiring close monitoring.
Detailed information regarding the new charts is available on the RCPCH web site:-
The UK-WHO charts are the recommended standard for infants in Scotland and England from May 11th 2009.
