First year of life is the one that have the highest growth rate. During the first six months most babies double their weight and up to the first year they triple it. The growth curves allow easy evaluation of the adequate development of the infant, while providing data to avoid excessive weight. Increased weight in the first year has been associated with increased risk of obesity in childhood. But it is unusual to have to reduce the amount of milk and other nutritious foods because of excessive weight gaining during the first year of infant's life.
