you need not worry too much .
weight varies with height .
standard weight would have been 9.2 kg.It is not very different from the weight of your baby.
regarding diet you can discuss with your paediatrician.Balanced diet with adequate calories neededfor proper growth of baby .wishing good health of your baby .
