Fenton Preterm Growth Charts

The Fenton Growth Charts are designed for growth moitoring of preterm infants with birth gestational age less than 37 weeks

The Fenton growth chart for preterm infants has been revised to accommodate the World Health Organization Growth Standard and reflect actual age instead of completed weeks, in order to improve preterm infant growth monitoring.
