I have a newborn nephew, he's now two months old. When he was born he was on the 90th percentile for his height and on the 10th percentile. He is now 2 months old and he is no longer on the weight chart, he's fallen off. I am worried about his health. His parents do not seem to be concerned. We are a very close family but we have been told to butt out, its their baby. Yes he is their baby but if he gets sick or God forbid something bad happens because he is so underweight, he will become our baby because he is our baby. I have three children, a bunch of nieces and nephews and we always fed them until they said no more. My sister-in-law restricts how much she feeds him because his tummy hurts. However, when we beg for him to fed more after a feeding when he is obviously hungary, and once in awhile my brother relents, his tummy doesn't hurt, he's in fact happier.
We love him like we love our own children, that is the type of family we are but we are worried
