Is 6.65kg weight normal for a 6 months old baby boy?

Please enlighten me. As per pedia my baby's weight is normal. Not to thin not to fat. But my baby looks so small. Is there other way for him to gain more weight? Thanks

It's not just about the weight alone. It's about weight relative to length, the baby's starting weight at birth, and also how quickly or slowly the weight is/was gained.

If your baby's weight gain seems fine I would leave it alone. Babies have natural mechanisms to regulate the calories they need. If you encourage them to ignore their natural feeling of fullness, and to keep eating, you risk establishing a pattern of overeating that will last later into life.

Don't try to fix something that isn't broken.
