Answer: Hi, It's not so much his height which determines the formula change as his behaviour and overall growth. Have you checked with your CHN and discussed the benefits of changing his formula? At six weeks he's on the lighter side for his weight. This would be affected if he was premature or small for dates. I think a check with your CHN is wise as she can weight and measure him and plot him on the percentile charts to see how he's tracking with his overall growth including weight, head circumference and length.
