In brief: Weight

Your doctor should be checking the weight at each visit, and tracking it to make sure the child is growing adequately.

In brief: Pee/poo/growth

Babies will tell you when they are hungry or full.
They leave behind reminders in their pee and poo, that they are done with the input.When they are robust feeders and are visibly filling out,you know they are doing okay and your doc can document the normal pattern of growth and development at visits.
