While 28 inches may be on the lower end of the growth chart, it really doesn't mean there's any problem. Despite the charts, babies have their own rate of growth. And unless your family is full of nothing but people over 6 feet tall (including females), 28 inches sounds fine. Measurements in the womb can be inaccurate. Plus, modern medicine has yet found a way to precisely determine the moment of conception - meaning a couple weeks behind could just be an inaccurate due date mixed with a smaller baby. Unless your doctor shows concern for your son's growth - don't worry.
