Baby weight: Baby weight differs with term, pregnancy factors (smoking, hypertension), infections, etc... If your baby has been evaluated by a pediatrician, there is no need to be concerned about weight, and good nutrition will ensure appropriate weight gain.
Dr. James Ferguson

Common: The expected weight of a newborn varies with many factors. Certainly those born early are smaller, since weight gain is about all that happens in the last month.Maternal smoking,high blood pressure or diminished quality of placental function can all effect birth weight.If all the parts are there and formed correctly, the small ones grow up to be as big as they would if born heavier.
