I Don’t Need This Mac Calculator But You Know Someone Who Does

Pediatric CalculatorKnock on wood. I found a calculator I don’t need, but I know two people who do.

At least, I hope I don’t need, but I know for sure they do.

No, it’s not some kind of esoteric or geek-inspired calculator for scientists. In this case, it’s a calculator which makes a good gift for anyone who has a pre-kindergarten age child, or is expecting. How many people do you know that have a Pediatric Calculator.

Actually, I didn’t even know there was such a thing but my sister is expecting (again) and this one caught my eye.

Pediatric Calculator is good for parents-to-be, parents with pre-schoolers, and pediatricians (I suspect they have something similar).

Pediatric Calculator

Use the calculator to check your child’s growth relative to standard percentiles from the World Health Organization.

All the basic are includes; length and height for age, weight for age, body mass index for age, and the all important head and arm circumference for age, and a few others.

The green bar graph displays each so you have a quick visual rating for your child’s progress.

And, as I said, I don’t need this (yet) but I know a few who do.
