What were the birthweight and length of your child at the birth and the we can tell the normal weight and length depe And your child weight and length are corresponding to 10 th percentile of the CDC growth charts and in normal range. Continue breastfeed and solid feeds 3 to 4 times a day and you can add edible oil or ghee to solid feeds for extra calories.
