Your son's weight is exactly on the average for his age, and his length is far above the average. Are you sure that this measurement is correct?

Hi Doc

Thank you for setting my mind at ease.

Yes its the right measurement. So he is very tall for his age?
At birth he was 56.6 cm. Which i am told is very tall.

He is defnitely not underweight. My son is 19months and weighs 13kg and the sister said it is a good weight.
