Actually, there really is one chart for all babies! Breastfed babies are the biological norm, so all babies should be compared to that norm. The problem right now is that many doctors are using charts based on formula fed babies, who do not always grow in the same way as breastfed infants.<br>
Here are the links for the WHO charts<br>
