Q:

My baby was 3.5kgs at birth.. After few days baby lost weight. Please let me know how to increase healthy weight gain in baby



asha chaudhry

hi ashi - this is totally normal! after the second week baby will regain and come to birth weight and slowly put on. if baby is only on bf pls feed every 2 hours. as long as u are feeding regularly and baby's pee count is more than 6-7 times, everything is perfect. pls don't worry. pls read the links i'm sharing with u.

As Asha said it's common . Just keep feeding baby after every 2 hours. After few months gradually baby's weight will grow. You can track baby's weight and height on the app too.
