Answer
Hi, mohd,

First, see your doctor and be sure there is no medical reason/problem that they are not gaining weight.  How much they should weigh depends on how big parents are, so a general statement is not applicable here.  If they are slender and healthy, I wouldn't worry about it.

Good luck, Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
