Hi my son was born 9 pounds. He is now 7 1/2 months old and he only weighs a little over 13 pounds. He also isn't developing like he should. The only thing he can do alone is hold his bottle. he cannot sit up or crawl or anything. my husband is 6'2 and our other 3children were perfectly fine and actually walking at 9 months.... My question is how concerned should I be? What could be wrong with him? Also I got pregnant with him while i was ob the mirana.

Hmmm sounds like he has a good appetite. Some kids are just skinnier then others. If the doctor says he is ok then I would guess that he is. Though I personally would get a second opinion.

He eats cerel in his bottles and he eats baby food. He also eats like mashed taters and stuff.

For developing, some babies just aren't as quick as others. I know that's not what anyone wants to hear. My son didn't crawl until he was 10 months old and I never wanted to hear that. But once he picked up crawling he picked up walking pretty fast. For the weight, I would honestly be a little concerned. But of course you would want to check with your doctor. :) you could try oatmeal in his bottles to help gain some weight. It helped my son.
