  • Since he was born so small then that may actually be normal. What does his doctor say about his current weight?

  • Talk to the doctor but the best predictor of a heathy baby is meeting milestones, being active, and eating at regular intervals. Each child is different and will do things within their own time including gaining weight. As long as he continues to gain weight steadily I wouldn't worry.

  • 2kg = 4.4lbs
    9.5kg = 20.9lbs

    It does sound like he has always been a little below the average weight for his age, but there are so many other things to consider. Was he a preemie (really low birthweight)? That does sometimes mean they take longer to gain lots of weight. Has he been consistently gaining weight? Is he energetic and happy? Some kids are just skinny. There's nothing wrong with them, it's just the way they are.
