I would like some good textbook/ journal references which talk about rate of weight gain in children in different age groups.

Dear Charulatha,

WHO recently published standards of growth velocity, both for weight and length which may answer your question. Have a look at:

http://www.who.int/childgrowth/standards/en/

http://www.who.int/childgrowth/standards/w_velocity/en/index.html

http://www.who.int/childgrowth/standards/l_velocity/en/index.html

I hope this helps

André
