Normal weight gain?

My little girl is 2 weeks and weighs 7lbs 5oz but at birth she was only 6lbs 1oz... Is that a lot of weight to gain in just 2 weeks?

  • It's good, and normal, great if you're breastfeeding too. Means he's getting plenty of milk.

  • lol i just posted a similar question.... my daughter is 1 month old and weighs 13lb. 14oz. and when she was born she was 7lb. 1oz. i guess it's ok..... the dr. just told me she is too fat, but i only nurse her every 4 hours so there is basically nothing i can do about it lol
