On each health notebook is presented a curve of weight and height varying according to the age on which you have the opportunity to compare the weight of the infant through an accurate measurement of the baby scale.In fact, babies up to 4 months mainly drink milk. Be careful not to give him too much milk because it could make him gain weight.
