When do you start using the normal growth charts, and do you use chronological or adjusted age?

as far as I know, there aren't set rules about those.
Your pedi is most likely already tracking this info (i.e., normal growth chart position).

I guess it would differ for each child depending on how far they were behind in size and/or development from the beginning and how early they were. DD was born at 34 weeks and she was always on track developmentally, but was below the normal charts with her size for a while. She caught up at about 6 months old and from then on the pedi used the normal charts and everything. I never really used adjusted age and neither did the pedi.

I know with my daughter (she wasn't premie but has restricted growth) her doctors don't follow the normal chart, but they look at the curve of hers and make sure it's going up normally rather than where exactly it's placed...if that makes sense

Mine started fitting onto it at around 4 months although they were close to the bottom. Just recently at their 6 month check they had reached 50th percentile though on the full-term charts! So proud of them! My doc said she uses the full-term charts for babies born at 34 weeks or after, and a different premie one for earlier babies.
