Hiya Cathy,

Here is the link for you....I have a wordpad page on my desktop that I cut and paste links to, so that I can copy them quickly....

http://www.who.int/childgrowth/standards/en/

There is also a link to the charts in the main ABA pages.....

Thanks we went to the Pead yesterday Aden is off the new WHO charts, we are now using the one's for children with DS. He is still not 8kgs yet I thought he was but that's with clothes on oh and different DR scales.

Just wanted to add I just received an email from the parents who helped put these charts together. The charts were adopted from an article in "Pediatrics" in 1988.They feel they are just as outdated as the old charts for the typical baby.
So many baby’s would be sitting in the “normal” range and be over weight. Good news for me as Aden is on the 15th percentile range so that should put him into the “normal” range yeh will have to plead my case with the Pead next visit. :-D
