Baby weight is of great worry for new parents. Usually a chubby baby is considered synonymous with healthy baby. But doctors know better- babies vary in weight and height greatly and their measurements till age two are not predictive of their weight and height as adults.
But a babyâ€™s weight may be of concern under two conditions. First, a baby weighing less than 5.5 pounds at birth maybe considered a low birth-weight baby. It may have a higher risk of developmental problems than a normal baby. It may be caused by poor maternal nutrition during pregnancy. Second condition is when baby grows at a slower rate than normal. It may be a physical problem or due to emotional neglect.
But a babyâ€™s health is determined not only by its weight and height but also other features like skin tone, muscle tone, energy level and activities like rolling, sitting up and grasping.
