My son age is 2.5 months. And I observe that his lower body part height is very less. I am Afraid that if it can be a serious problem in future. Please suggest whether this is normal condition or anything else.

Hi lybrate-user When an infant is born its upper part of the body proportion is more than the lower body. As the head is also big at the time of deliver. Gradually the body proportion becomes normal with time. So don't worry. It is normal. Takecare.
