Q.

heavy baby boy

My son was born on 24/1 and weighed 3.9kgs. He now weighs 9.5kgs and everybody comments on the fact that he is over weight. He is currently drinking NAN1. He doesnt over feed in fact he sometimes drinks a bottle less than he is supposed to. will his weight stabblize when he is older. What can I do to help him as I am afraid he will develop chest problems?

His weight is not that far above the average at all and I am not at all concerned about him. He will lose some excess weight when he becomes mobile and starts to crawl and later on to walk.
