Don’t be alarmed if your baby loses some weight during the first few days of life. Babies are born with extra body fluid and typically lose up to 10% of their birth weight before they stabilize and start gaining. By their two-week birthday, babies should be back up to their birth weight, and during the first month they’ll gain weight quickly -- putting on between a half-ounce and an ounce a day. Your doctor will check your baby’s weight gain against a growth chart during your well-baby visits, to make sure your baby is growing at the right rate. (btw, i got this from an article, hop it helps :))

It's what you feed them after the formula that matters veggies instead of McDonald's, carrots instead of popsicles, etc.

I would talk to your doctor. Both my nephews were 10 lb babies and both are tall and slim. They are around 10 now and very sharp. My oldest nephew was reading and doing simple math BEFORE he got into kindergarten. All babies are different it's not about weight it's about giving them the nutrition they need to grow. Deprive them of the nutritriants they need and you're doing more harm than good.
