Is my son overweight or just big?

My son is 7months old and weighs 10.75kg, height is 72cm and head circumference is 48cm?
He drinks about 625ml of milk in a 24hr period and eats a cereal in the morning and about 50% or 75% of no2 purity jar for supper. Is the diet enought or is there anything i can do  in case he' s overweight to help him lose.

Your son's weight is well above the average for his age which is about 9.8kg. His height is also above average. In fact his height and weight are well balanced and your baby is just a big boy. There is absolutely no need for any concern.
