As long as he's growing (even slowly), hydrated, and thriving... stop focusing on his weight and focus on your child. If he is healthy... there isn't a thing in the world wrong w/ being small.

I totally understand. My youngest was born at 39 weeks, 2 days and normal weight.. 7 lbs 3 oz. However, after that was always on the smaller side. Her ped made me feel bad about it like she wasnt getting enough or i want doing it right. All my friends who breastfed had chunkers and mine was a peanut. she has always been about 3 months behind on clothes, so for example at 6 months could still fit 3 months clothes. Now shes 16 months tomorrow and still a peanut, weighing 17 lbs and 28 inches. The difference shes no longer breastfed as of nine months, I gave up, and she eats what we eat. I had nothing to do with her size. Dont be so hard on yourself mama. (hugs)

My daughter when she was a baby i tried so many ways to breastfeed her but i failed.so the doctor who did my seizure he came up with an idea of suction pump,the nurse pump my breast milk into the bottle and then my daughter able to drink that. You should try it too. Its helpful if your baby don't feed naturally.
