Hi there !

I have a five month old baby boy,I' ve been giving him S26 no.1and breastmilk since birth .He stop taking breastmilk when he was 3 months and I think its because i had to go back to work and now he' s weight is 9 kg.What is worring me is that people are saying he is over weight and he is going to have chest problems (asthma) because S26 is reach.Is my baby over weight for his age? should I change the formula and which one should I use?How is Nan Pelagorn(spelling)?
Help please.

The average weight for a baby boy of 5 months is 7.5kg. Your baby's weight is far above the average and falls in the top 2% of babies of his age.You have not given me his length, he may just be a big boy rather than being overweight.Your baby is on a good formula and there is no need to change this formula.Is he eating a lot as well? You may be giving him too much milk in addition to his solid food.
