Pediatrician 's  Response

Normally the weight of a baby triples by the age of one year and doubles by the age of 5 to 6 months.

Formula fed babies grow more rapidly than breast fed babies.

Your baby seems to be above the higher end of normal growth.

Request you to contact your doctor for a physical examination.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
