A high standard example of a Growth Monitoring Chart from India

Three steps for appropriate plotting include:

  1. Find the child's age on the chart

The first box called "Born" on the horizontal axis should be filled with the name of the month the child was born (i.e. March). All the other boxes should be filled with the subsequent months (i.e. April, May, June, etc). Based on the month, mark a straight dotted line up the middle of the column.

  1. Find the child's weight on the chart.

The vertical axis of the growth chart indicates the weight of the child in kilos. Based on the child weight, follow the horizontal faint line across corresponding to the child weight (to the nearest 100g) across the card until it crosses the right month column. Put a dot in the middle of the column representing the month of weighing.

  1. Draw the Growth Curve.

Draw a line from the previous dot, if any, to the new one to make the child's growth curve.
