Infant Weight Gain: Your daughter's birthweight, 3.6 Kg is at the 50th percentile which is average. Her 2 month weight is also at the 50th percentile or average. In the first month of life, infants gain about 30 grams per day. After 2 months of age, infants gain about 20 grams per day. Birth weight generally doubles by age 5 months and triples by age one year.
