Concerned about your childs weight ?

Found this link which might help you to know whether or not your child is overweight - you just fill in date of birth, weight, height and it provides you with the information. I was concerned about my daughter who I thought was a bit chubby but I got some reassurance from it. Thought it might be of help to others.

That's brilliant. She's underweight on the slidy scale thing at the bottom, but healthy according to the top right hand corner. Not sure what the 9th centile is, but she's there.

That's a really nice link. Dd was on the 73rd centile which is where I expected her to be.
