Now for those of you dads (and mums)-to-be who have downloaded one of the many pregnancy Apps on the market today, you will no doubt have come across the numerous baby growth size charts, which set out how large our bundles of joy will grow over the next 40 weeks – by comparing them to seeds, fruit and vegetables.
While the baby growth size charts start off simple enough, from blueberries and strawberries to avocados and mangos, before long they venture into the rarely sighted and often bizarre ‘exotic fruit aisle’ of your local specialist greengrocer.
Now, I’m all for healthy eating (although my wife might disagree) but show me a man who knows the relative size and dimensions of a dragon fruit versus a winter squash and I’ll show you a pink unicorn that poops gold.
So to make things easier, I’ve created the definitive man’s guide to baby growth over the next 40-odd weeks of gestation, using universally recognised man-friendly items (granted, with a slight UK bias!).
I hope you will enjoy this and share it too. And please do send me feedback if you have any better ideas for our manly size chart, or indeed any topic suggestions for the next blog.
Finally, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram via youthedaddy for more daily updates.
Check you later – 33 weeks and 1 day left to go…
