Hey Tanvi, yes it's normal for a new born to loose little weight in a week, as when the baby is born there is little water content due to being in moms womb so that comes off, I remember my daughter was 2.6 approx when born and and had reduced to 2.2 or 2.3 later. till your baby is taking enough feeds and is passing urine minimum 6-7 times a day you need not worry. by 6months of age the baby should be double the birth weight. take care and eat healthy and have lots of fluids like soups, water, avoid anything cold .
