Mum to Brooke 23.2 weeks, 450 grams now 3.5 yrs
Your DS sounds fine so don't worry. Try not to compare bubs size or developmental stage as every child is different and will grow and develop at very different rates. As long as your son is healthy, happy and thriving nothing else matters.
My #3 DD was weighed just last week- she is 8 weeks old and weighs 5.990kg and is 61cm long she was born weighing 4070g- she is 500g heavier than her big sister was a the same age and 1cm shorter. Both girls have been fully breastfed from birth and DD #2 was born 100g heavier than bub #3. Shows how different bubs weight and growth can be even in the same family with the same genes.

my baby is 10 weeks in 4 days time and he weighs 6kgs. he will easily be 6.5kgs in a week or so. he was 3450gms at birth and 51cm. he's now 62cm. the nurse says that puts him in the 75% for his age. it's good. your baby and mine are thriving.
