Q.

Babys weight

Hi Doc,
My son will be 7mnths during the week. Just wanted to establish what should the average weight and height be for a boy his age. His weighing 7.9 kg and is quite tall. I tried looking at the growth chart on the web but find it a bit difficult to read. Could you perhaps share some insight on this matter please. Thanks
