Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Normally a baby triples it birth weight by the age of one year. Give your baby a diet rich in calories and proteins. Monitor your babies weight regularly. Get your baby examined once by your doctor to rule out conditions like anemia etc.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
