I would also take in consideration the build of you and your SO. If one or both of you have small builds, your baby might also. I personally know a few moms like that, and they did not choose to give formula to their babies and their babies are just fine. They are just small.

Babies do grow at their own rates. We personally haven't had trouble with E's weight. She is in 50th percentile for her weight. But she is also formula fed.
