Hai Subha.. sometimes it also depends on baby's height. Usually each month they should gain half kg to 1 kg weight. And baby lose their birth weight within 2-3 days of birth and then start gaining. If baby is active and healthy...then no need to worry. Are you feeding breast milk or formula milk? In another  couple of months...when he start his solids may gain weight.

feeding him bm only..he is colic  and also lactose intolerant...he is active but weight increasing very very slow getting more stress abt it
