    8 month old not gaining weight

    Hi all
    My baby just turned 8 months old and is not gaining weight. At his 6 month dr apt he weighted 15 lbs 5 ozs. They made me take him again when he was 7 months and he only gained 5 ozs. Now he is 8 months and when I weighted him on the scale it says he weighs 16lbs. Should I be worried? I breastfeed on demand and he eats baby food two to three times a day. Any advice would be appreciated.
