Q: What is a normal blood pressure for an infant?
Infant blood pressure varies depending on age and whether they're sleeping, awake, crying, etc. Here are some general guidelines:
Less than 6 months - 85 (+/-10) over 46 (+/-9)
Over 6 months - 93 (+/-14) over 55 (+/-9)
By 12 months - 94 (+/-11) over 56 (+/-8)
All the best,
