hi ..my baby is now five months old. he is now 5. 300 kg weight (birth weight 2. 50kg)He is gaining weight slowly. I am in a confusion whether he is getting enough breast milk. He is passing urine more than ten times a day. I am giving him formula once a day. What should I do for getting proper weight for my kid?

the weight of the baby seems fine. There is no absolute weight for the babies below one year of age which is considered healthy. There is a range of weight and generally birth weight of the baby is considered.The baby should be consistently gaining weight. If the baby doubles her birth weight by 5 months, it means the weight gain is good. You should not worry for the weight as the baby has doubled his weight.
