  • A good weight for him is whatever he weighs. Most kids double birth weight by 6 mos and triple by one year. I would just be happy the way that he is.

  • There is a wide range of what is normal. If he is eating well and is happy he is doing fine. At your next checkup you should find out what percentile he is in. Enjoy!!

  • Look at the baby, not the scale. If he's wetting and making milestones he's FINE.

  • As long as he isn't DRAMATICALLY dropping percentiles (NOT weight) he's fine. Just make sure that he's wetting enough diapers and hitting milestones.

  • all that matters is a steady weight gain (as PP said, percetile)
