Hi Doc
As I have mentioned that my boy turned 7 mnths weighs 7.9kg &  70cm tall. As per your reply his weights is below average. Is this any reason for concern?
Sorry if Im abit to much on this, but this is my 1st child and a completely new experience. Appreciate all your feedback.

Your baby's weight is unusually low falling on the lowest 10% line for abay boy of his age. It would be best to have his paediatrician see him just to be sure that he is well.
