  1. Hello and thank you for posting us at Medimetry.It is common to lose weight in first few weeks of life.Newborns lose almost 7-10% of their weight loss in first few weeks of life.This is normal and nothing to worry.Your baby will start gaining weight now.Is your baby taking exclusive breast feeds?Give baby demand breast feeds whenever baby is hungry.Give foremilk and hindmilk both from one breast and only after it is complete then try feeding from second breast.Take adequate fluids,nutritious diet to ensure sufficient supply of breast milk for your baby.Normally at 5-6 months a baby doubles his birth weight.If u think baby is not gaining weight in next few months please visit a Paediatrician and get baby examined.I hope this info helped you.Best wishes and take care!
