In brief: Too big; too little

Doctors like to see babies grow "the right amount".
To follow the growth in length (height), weight, and head size, the doctor measures the baby at birth, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, etc. . . .. The measurements are plotted on growth charts. If the charts show that a baby is too big or too little, then there may be a medical problem or possibly a hereditary tendency to be big or little.

In brief: Brain growth

Poor growth and nutrition will ultimately result in poor brain growth.
This will can cause permenant decrease in IQ as well as permenant learning disability.
