Question of the day

Answer: Babies who are eating enough will pee, poop, and gain weight. It is normal for babies to lose weight in the 1st 3 days, but once mom’s milk is in, babies will begin gaining about 1oz per day (or 5 oz per week) during the 1st 4 months. They will double their birth weight by 4-6 months and will triple their birth weight by the time they are 1 year old. Additionally, babies who are eating enough will show feeding interest and will feed 8-12 times per day.
