I hope you are well. Your child's weight is okay :) Chubby doesn't mean healthy, so even if your son is lean he can be healthy. Continue breastfeeding your child until 6 months and after 6 months you may start with semi-solids :) If you can express enough milk and your child is satisfied with the feed, then additional milk isn't required.
