I feed free choice, decent quality feed, 1lb alfalfa pellets, 1 lb oats, 1/4 cup flax and 1 lb soaked beet pulp. Never had a weanling grow too fast, or have any type of growth problem. My girl right now(eating the feed specified above) is qh, weaned at about 5 months. she is holding her weight well, up here our winters are very harsh, so I find the babies need a little extra.
That said, I would rather they be too thin than too fat, so if I see a weanling of mine gaining too much I will reduce the amount of concentrate they are being fed.
