Breastfed babies gain weight slowly and uniformly as compared to bottle fed babies. Bottle fed babies are chubbier. Your son may be having ideal weight and you can monitor this by observing the counts of wet and soiled diapers and baby´ s alertness.

Weight gain rates in infants vary and are affected by factors such as frequency of breastfeeding, metabolic rates and so on. It may be that your son is gaining weight but you are unable to notice. Just in case you are too much worried, check with a pediatrician.
