birth weight 2.7kgs and was born on 38w+5days
neither gaining weight or loosing..
his weight just stuck sometimes for e.g from 4th to 5th month he just gained 0.2kgs.
feeding pattern is also not good. he just takes 3 to 4 oz milk and is on top feed
solid intake is also not good. he just eats 1/4 cup.

it is reassuring to knoe that he is active.This weight appears ok given the low birth weight.

check weight after ever 2 weeks. If there is a feeding issue or poor weight gain then please see a Paediatrician for detailed medical check up and possible investigations.
