An unnamed pizza restaurant wants you to know that their slices of pizza are as big as newborns, which are roughly 20 inches long.

You can see a picture of the restaurant, which was first published on Reddit and Imgur.

The image is a reminder for parents to keep an eye on their newborns size. Though the weight of newborns varies, most full term babies are born between 6 and 9 pounds, according to The American Pregnancy Association. Babies will sometimes gain weight after birth, but most will return to their birth weight after 10 to 14 days, according to the APA.

Parents are encouraged to keep an eye on their childs weight because too much weight loss or gain after birth may mean the child has undiagnosed medical issues, the APA explained.

If parents dont have a scale to measure their newborns weight, the APA suggests parents monitor how many wet and dirty diapers the child has per day, how satisfied the child is after eating and if the child appears overly sleepy during the day.

Dont hesitate to ask your health care provider about any concerns you have regarding your babys weight gain, according to the APA.
