    acceptable weight gain for 1 month baby

    is a weight gain of 1090g (from the weight at discharge, not birth weight) in 1 month acceptable for a baby that's totally breastfed?

    My girl has seen 3 pediatricians, all of whom say that she is small for her age. One of them has even tried to get me to switch to soy-based formula.

    The regular ped my girl is seeing wants to see my girl fatten up, even though she says her weight gain is acceptable. I feel so stressed!!!

    My girl weighs about 3.5kg. Is it enough to feed her 70 mother in law of expressed milk during one of the night feeds?

    Re: acceptable weight gain for 1 month baby

    My son when he is about a week old, the nurses at Kandang Kerbau Hospital told me that he shld be drinking about 300ml per day.....

    have your baby milk intake increased in the 1mth from when she was newborn and a few weeks old?

    When my son was about two months he is 6kg plus......

    Re: acceptable weight gain for 1 month baby

    hi

    my baby only put on 900grams from day of discharge n my pediatrician says its ok coz normally by 1st month their weight gain should be between 500g-1kg so actually your girl did put on enough just that i believe her birth weight must be quite small?my girl was 3.1kg when discharge n at 1st month 4kg

    my girl also full breastfeeding...70ml is ok my gir drinks that amt as well when she was 2-4weeks now she's 7weeks drinks about 100ml so dont worry think your girl will be fine...just to check is your breastmilk very white-ish n watery?coz mine is n my mum kept saying those yellowish ones r better more filling for baby hence make them grow bigger

    Yes. My dear daughter is fully bf and also put on about 1.1kg in the first month (she was only 2.43kg at birth) and doctor was pleased with her growth.

    I think you should try giving more and see how much she can finish? My dear daughter was 3.5kg too at 1 month. Usually she'd drink 100ml or so per feed.

    Re: acceptable weight gain for 1 month baby

    my girl is about 5 weeks old. She's got double chin but her body just refuses to fatten up.

    i consulted a lactation consultant and she told me that the minimum amount is weight (kg) x 20ml.

    so figured that 3.5 x 20ml should be about 70 ml. The problem is that my girl sometimes can't even finish 60ml and if she feeds too much (at both breasts), she tends to spit out quite a bit of milk. But she does feed pretty often at the breast.

    a feed of about 60ml can last her about 2 hours.

    ladies, can share with me your pds? Cos I think your pds are more bf friendly than mine.

    the foremilk is a bit bluish and thin but the hind milk is really yellowish or white in colour.

    if she wets her diaper after every feed, and poops about 3-5 times a day, and her fontanelles are not sunk in, can i assume that she's in pretty good shape? She's also pretty alert.
