    You're not doing anything wrong. The table alone doesn't indicate a problem unless it's accompany by other concerns. If your baby is meeting development milestones on time, he seems happy and content, he has a good diaper output, then everything should be good to go. Every baby grows on different rates some are destine to be really big and others really small, and they're happy and healthy babies.
