Your baby son's weight is just slightly above the average for his age. His weight is well within normal limits and you do not need to be concerned about him. He is probably tall for his age as well. If he is chesty and his nose is blocked he may have allergies or he may have enlarged adenoids. It is best to ahave him checked by a paediatrician if you are concerned about these symptoms.
