Birth weight and growth of Chinese infants during the first year


, : Birth weight and growth of Chinese infants during the first year. Chinese Jour Physiol 4(1): 31-40

An attempt is made to formulate 3 standard averages for Chinese in North China. The average birth weight for boys is 3117 [plus or minus] 16 gm.; for girls 2980 [plus or minus] 16 gm. These figures are distinctly lower than American or European standards. The aver age standing height at birth of boys is 49.9 [plus or minus] 1 cm.; of girls 48.8 [plus or minus] 1 cm. These averages are quite com- parable with those of Occidental races. The average growth curve of breast-fed infants during the first postnatal growth cycle describes a more or less even sweep. The figures recorded are similar to the British standard values as established by T. B. Robertson.
