Real Baby Milk welcomes new growth charts

The much anticipated arrival of the new WHO Growth charts (the ones in the red book) is here!

For a long time these charts, which are dutifully plotted every time you weigh your baby, have been measuring all babies against the weight of a formula fed baby. Due to there being 15-20% more calories in formula milk, the weight gain is significantly quicker than the natural weight gain of a breastfed baby. The change of these charts is even more significant due to the links to childhood obesity with the feeding of formula to babies.
