The baby weight pool can also be held along with the baby shower to make it much more fun and intimate.
After you have the baby weight pool, you need to start preparing the baby’s needs.

Helped by the doctor, you will be needed to pay very close attention to the baby’s weight. Also, the doctor will have very detailed information about your baby’s length and head volume. The average weight for a baby is about 3.5 kg or 7.5 lb. But, it is also considered normal if the baby’s weight is around 2.5 kg or 5.5 lb to 4.5 kg or 10 lb.

Also, parents who have more weight will be likely to also have large babies and vice versa. Meanwhile, the average length of a baby is 50 cm or 20 inches. But, it is considered normal if the baby’s length is between 45.7 cm or 18 inches to 60 cm or 22 inches. And the average head circumference or volume is 34.5 cm or 13.5 inches. But, in the first four months, the circumference will grow very fast.
