How to monitor the growth and development of newborn babies in 0-1 months?

Physical Development Monitoring: Length and weight are intuitive indicators of infant feeding and nutritional status. The length and weight of infants before 6 months of age should be measured every 2-4 weeks, and the number of measurements can be appropriately increased during the recovery period after illness. Use "Children's Growth Curve" to judge the growth status. The optimal growth pattern for babies of normal birth weight is to maintain their distribution in the population at birth. Infants have their own laws of growth, and it is not advisable to pursue the upper limit of the reference value. (1) Body weight: ❶ Physiological weight loss: It starts on the 2nd to 3rd day after birth and reaches a peak on the 3rd to 4th day after birth, and the weight loss can reach 6% to 9% of birth weight, but not more than 10%; Generally, the birth weight will be restored on the 7th to 10th day, and then increase by 10 to 12g/kg per day; ❷ When returning to the hospital for child care on the 42nd day, the weight will increase by about 1kg; ❸ If the birth weight has not recovered by the 10th day after birth , should go to the hospital to find out the cause. (2) Height: about 50.4 ± 1.7cm (male) at birth, 49.8 ± 1.61cm (female); at 0 to 3 months, it increases by about 1cm per week, and at 1 month, it is about 56.9 ± 2.3cm ( Male), 56.1 ± 2.2cm (female). (3) Head circumference: 32-34cm at birth; from 0 to 3 months, it increases by about 0.5cm per week, and at 1 month, it is about 34.3 ± 1.2cm (male) and 33.9 ± 1.2cm (female). Under normal circumstances, the length and weight of infants before 6 months of age should be measured once every 2-4 weeks, and the number of measurements can be appropriately increased during the recovery period after illness; the first 6 months return to the hospital for child care once a month; 7-12 Months, return to the hospital for child care every 2-3 months; 1-2 years old, return to the hospital for child care every 3-6 months.
