Answer: The growth in weight and height is directly linked to birth weight and birth height. So a small 2.7 kg baby will not suddenly become same as 3.5 kg baby at the age of 1 year. The birth weight and height depend on many factors inc uding genetics.These percentages are not likes grades in school. So, higher the better does not work here.Overall growth over a period of time is more important than weight at a particular time. And don't worry mommy your LO's weight is absolutely normal. Don't be panicked think logically and don't give too much importance to this type of conversation. If u have any queries related to your baby's health consult with your pediatrician as they can guide you better
