Dear mummies,

I just brought my boy to see his pediatrician this friday. He was born at 35 weeks, weight at birth was 1.995kg. Today, he weighs 5.3kg but still remains within the 3rd percentiles (unadjusted age- 4 months old). Question, how long does it take for your kids to catch up with their peers in terms of physical and mental developments?
