He is breastfed you said? I went through weight gain problems with my LO and was told that baby is expected to gain at least 0.6oz per day, up to 1 oz per day (is the normal range). If you go from birth, (estimating each month has 30 days) he should have gained at least four pounds by now.

If you don't want to bring him to the doctor (which would be recommened by pretty much everybody, I think lol) I suggest only nursing him on one breast per nursing session. That way he will get more of the fatty hindmilk instead of just the foremilk, and that will help him gain weight.

Good luck
