    Mine was 8lbs 2oz after birth on day 4 she was 7lbs 4oz, on day 10 she was 7lbs 10 and on day 20 she was 9lbs!

    She had been in NICU which was a trigger for the big weight loss.
    She was born on the 50th, week 8 moved to the 75th, week 12 moved to 91st and she's been there since and is 24 weeks.
    She's also breast fed but in the first 4 weeks we combi fed due to the weight loss.

    Congrats on your little bundle!!xxx

    Harrison was 5lb 10oz at birth, 5lb 6oz on day 3, 5lb 10oz on day 7, 6lb 4oz on day 13, and 7lb 4oz on day 20. Pretty good going with all the problems we have had with feeding - but still going with the bfing!

    I think we are all doing brilliantly!

    Little Rosie was 7lb3oz when born, 7lb on nose on day 5, she'll next get weight in Thursday (day 10) and I'm hoping I've got her over birth weight! I'm breast feeding xxx

    Awww, its quite normal for them.to lose on day 5 so looks good. BF babies can be a bit slower to start with too although they are all different

    I wouldn't worry, especially with him being BF. Babies do put on a lot of weight quickly in the early days and it does start to slow down around 3-4 months. My LO would put on a pound a week sometimes!

    My little fella was 9lbs 1 when born, can't remember how much he lost in the first few days, but was back to his birth weight soon afterwards. He was a stone by his 8 week check. He's 18lbs now at 20 weeks although he did have a spell of not eating much so didn't gain as much as the charts say he could have. I stopped weighing him after 8 weeks and only started again recently with his eating problems. I wouldn't bother if he was feeding well.
