Children's Growth Awareness Week is something I'm so passionate about. My daughter (my reason for this business) is Small for Gestational Age. The MAGIC Foundation has provided me with support and guidance when I've needed it most.
I want to help spread awareness and support of Children's Growth Awareness Week — if it helps a parent and child who may need that extra push to get help. This week, with every order we're donating $5 to The MAGIC Foundation.
Did you know? There are hundreds of medical conditions that affect physical growth in children. Children only have a short time to grow, but a lifetime to live with the results — If growth is ignored it can have a major impact on the overall health and wellness throughout life. Tracking physical growth is a crucial step toward monitoring your child’s health. Growth delay, even accelerated growth, can be early indicators of an underlying medical disorder.
Tracking growth over time is important because it helps to identify trends. People come in all shapes, sizes, and heights. The purpose of following growth on a chart is to insure that your child is growing at the proper rate.
