how big/small your baby is shouldnt be a concern, its if he has been following around the same percentile the whole time. like if your baby has always been in the 20ith percentile for hight, and 40ith for weight and stayed along those line for most of his dr appointments than thats what his/her average is. you cant be worried about that and sometimes the drs even worry to much about that if you have a good one. it would be one thing if she/he was the 20th percentile in hight and the 75th for weight but it looks like you just have a petite baby and that is perfectly normal.
