He sounds fine. My daughter was born full term at only 2.2kg and 45cm. She didn't reach 3kg and 51cm until she was 6 weeks 3 days. As long as your baby is gaining weight, happy and healthy, and feeding well, don't worry about it. He'll catch up eventually.

I think he is doing very well with the size, my son was born 1day after due date and he was 2880gr and 49cm.. so your i think your son is big enough and its still a week till the 17. sept. My son grew quite tall he is as tall as kids 1year older than him.
So i dont think you need to worry.. and congratulations on your baby boy:-)

Yes sandi we have his checkup with doctor he says my baby is just doing good. The things bothering me is that should i consider baby as normal one now after 17 sep or my baby will always be one week behind normal growth

Is he gaining a lot of wait every week? Have you talked to his pediatrician about your concerns? Take him in for a checkup and discuss your concerns with his doctor.
