Hi Diptesh, the weight gain 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 and triples by one year, it means the weight gain is good. 2018-09-29 11:48:24

So in another month, you baby would gain another 500-600 grams,and would tripe his birth weight. 2018-09-29 11:48:59
