  1. Infant and Toddler Growth and Development Elisa A. Mancuso RNC, MS, FNS Professor of Nursing

  2. Growth of Infant • Cephalocaudal (head → toe) • Proximodistal (trunk → periphery) • General → Specific (Large → fine muscles) • 1” a month during 1st 6 months • Average Ht 6 months 25 ½ inches 12 months 29 inches • Use recumbent length until 3 years • than standing (vertical height)

  3. Weight • 5-7oz/wk until 5-6 months • Birth weight doubles at 6 month • Birth weight triples at one year • Always refer to kilograms 2.2 lbs = 1 kg • All medications based on weight in kg!

  4. Head Circumference = HC Reflects brain growth • Posterior fontanele closes @ 2 mos. • Anterior fontanel closes @12-18 mos. • Measure (Forehead → Occiput) • For 1st3 years

  5. Chest (CC) and Abdomen Chest = Head circumference @ 1 year • Measure @ nipple line. • Barrel chested as infant • Chest > Head after 3 years • After 1 year of age, • A/P transverse diameter = 1:2 Abdominal Girth • Measure above umbilicus • √ Abdominal distention • R/O liver or intestinal diseases

  6. Growth Charts • Serial exams to assess growth progress • Plotted as percentiles: • 25th %, 50th %, 75th %, 95th %. • @ 95th % = Pt > 95% of kids. • Used to notice any ↓ or ↑in weight, height, or HC. • Specific charts for premature infants

  7. Denver Developmental Screening Test (DDST) Denver II • Assesses from birth → 6 years • Age divided monthly → 24 months, • then q 3 mos. → 6 years • Not an intelligence test Four categories • Personal/Social • Fine motor/Adaptive • Language • Gross motor

  8. Infant Reflexes • Moro - Startle • Loud sound = extension & abduction of extremities • Tonic neck – Fencing • Turn head to one side ® • arm & leg extend on ® side • Babinski • Dorsiflexion of big toe and toes fan out • All of above disappear in about 3-4 months
