What the Expert Says:

While the answer in part depends on birth weight and gestational age (how long the pregnancy was),  for a normal full term (9month pregnancy) baby, this is a relatively low weight.  A girl or boy at this weight would be below the normal/usual weight for a baby this age.  Average birth weight is about 3.5 kg, and babies at this age are expected to gain approximately 20-30 gm (almost 1 oz) per day.  As already suggested, the pediatrician should be monitoring the weight and plotting this on the growth chart and noting whether the baby is gaining weight normally.
Below are links to the CDC web sites with these growth charts (including the girl and boy charts).
