New WHO growth charts

The WHO has recently published new infant growth standards, based on babies who were exclusively breastfed through 6 months of age. Make sure your family doctor or pediatrician uses these new growth charts--they are the only ones based on exclusive breastfeeding, and thus the only ones that reflect normal infant growth patterns.

For fun, I plugged in Zari's numbers. She's around 50% for weight, and 90% for height.
