I'm actually surprised the dr didn't say anything, one lady in my local mama board took her baby in and they ran a whole slew of tests on him for slow gain. Her midwife even suggested she take enzymes.

So, yes, I think you're being paranoid. Don't sweat it.

Catholic Mama to Liam, Rowan and one on the way! Wife to an amazing man.
our chunk monkey had his 2 month checkup on friday - 15lbs 6oz, 25" long!! but our donor is tall and has an athletic build and ds1 is also big.
Like it was said, it is an average... some gain more quickly, some gain less quickly. My third son was a fast gainer and gained 1 lb a week... (20 lbs at 10 weeks, 30 lbs at 6 months, 44 lbs at a year) Wilhelmina is gaining a lot less than that... but she is healthy, eating well, outputting well and is filling out... (my other two were a bit less than average also)

A doula who married a cop & became a mama to 3 boys: G 12/22/00, my rainbow baby B 2/2/07 and L 2/10/10 my CBA2V baby, waiting for my little caboose late February 2013 & always remembering my two angels 2006 & 2012.
But she's in the 50th percentile for everything, her outputs are great and is meeting her milestones. I've stopped worrying about it (the ukranian momma in me always gets worried about weight, lol) but my dr. asked if I considered topping up with formula. Needless to say I'm currently looking for a new doctor.
