1. A Preterm Growth Chart App that shows babies growth patterns (weight, head circumference, and length) on the Fenton 2013 growth charts is now available. This App only works on Apple iPhones and iPads that have an Operating System of iOS 8 or greater.

"I love this growth chart App, that you can enter the data every few days and see the baby’s growth pattern on the growth chart.    It also provides Z scores for each measurement.  This App is much easier to use than paper copies of the growth charts, and I like that you can e-mail the growth chart too."  Sarah McKenna, Pediatric Dietitian
