Hello..... Weight birth should be around 2.5 kg.. In preterm delivery birth weight will be little less.. At 3 month old weight will be around 5 to 6 kg.. If he is preterm baby don't worry he will catch up.. Continue exclusive breastfeeding till 6 months.. If he falling sick repeatedly that would stunt his growth.. Consult pediatrician.
