Then you shouldn't worry so much about his size as long as he is eating and drinking normally. Children grow so quickly. Before you know it, he will be all grown up.

Good luck!

Congratulations!

The baby's weight doesn't seem off to me, in my opinion, but I'm not a doctor, either.

Have you taken your child to the pediatrician? What does the pediatrician say about his growth and development? If necessary, the pediatrician should be able to recommend next steps on helping his growth. A lot of it is also dependent on ethnicity and size of the parents.

Good luck!
