Is it normal for my newborn to be losing weight?

Dr. Gregg Alexander
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Yes: Most newborns will lose weight initially. Babies are born with some extra fluid weight, probably to prepare them for the transition when breast milk is low volume at first. They will typically lose some of that weight at first - even formula-fed babies will. We like to see them regain their birth weight by at least 2 weeks of age.
