Archana Mudaliyar you must have got health card from hospital where your baby was born and I am sure his vaccinations are regular....leaving 5th month they have vaccination every month till 6th where his pediatric must be checking his growth and if you are not doing that please check with his doctor if you've missed anything. ....don't think about ppl comments follow ur doctor and parameters given as per his birth weight and height

This would depend on what is the circumference at birth. Average range is 41cms to 46 CMS.

I don't know the circumference at the time of his birth but now it's 45cms

Sonali Shivlani

It is in the normal range.
