    That's about 110 grams a week which is a healthy weight gain so I wouldn't worry too much. Unless a GP or child health nurse is concerned. Is he alert and feeding well?

    As pp said I wouldn't stress unless mchn or doc has said something.. Some babies are just small. my dd is "small" but has steady gain... They said it was fine
