I wish we could connect that tracking graph to our own. Such a hassle to log in and out and in again to track my son's growth.

Thank you for using WeightChart.com. In the long run, we have plans to allow one person to quickly add weight for other individuals. This will be very useful for families, daycares, wellness facilities etc.

Until this functionality is developed, we encourage you to explore the newly implemented Quick Entry function. This feature allows you to receive an email with a link that can be used to enter weight and wellness data without logging in.

Also, if you have not already explored it, please share your children's chart with yourself. This will allow you to view the chart without logging in as them.

You can still log into their account to view all of the growth statistics.

Thank you again for using WeightChart.com
