  • Your baby's weight will double in the next 2 months. You don't need to do anything special.

  • What ^^she ^^ said :) Besides, supplements are going to do nothing so don't waste your money. At best YOU will put on weight but there is no guarantee that your baby will.

  • WHAT you eat can make a difference. Make sure you are eating a lot of high quality protein.
    Much depends on factors or considerations you didn't mention. The weight at which you started pregnancy, your pattern of weight gain DURING pregnancy, your baby's estimated growth curve, your reason for asking this question.
    If you were prompted to ask this because your practitioner raised concerns about your baby's size or pattern of growth, that's one thing.
    Asking because you want to ensure a chubby baby is another thing.
    I think there's ample reason to "trust the process" and it's true that in the late weeks of pregnancy, babies lay on the chub. It's a different task than earlier, when they are developing rapidly & growing rapidly, but more "lean." But if some concern has been raised about YOUR baby's growth, then it does make sense to consult about diet/nutrition.
    I had a twin pregnancy & what/how much I ate made a huge difference.

  • Nothing special is needed. Baby takes everything it needs from your body. Maintain your normal eating habits and baby will be fine. Drink some extra water too so you don't dehydrate.

  • Why are you trying to get your baby to gain weight?? I'm sure your baby will have a healthy birth weight!

  • Why? I have never heard of worrying about a baby not weighing enough before birth unless it is a multiple birth. This is odd.

  • Just time and healthy eating habits.

    Answer by QuinnMae at 9:33 AM on May. 20, 2013

  • Um, no. Just eat normally and make healthy choices. Unless your doctor has concerns, don't mess with the normal process.
