I would talk to the pediatrician first. If they're concerned, I would take their recommendations into consideration. If your baby is eating solids and is mobile (crawling, cruising or walking), most likely their physical activity is going to help them maintain or lose weight.

If your baby is pretty young and has not started solids yet, I'd probably keep doing what I was doing with feedings. In my experience, Henry would stop eating when he was full. A good sign of his being full was turning his head away from the breast or the bottle or using his hand to push it away and struggling to be free.
