My baby was born 6.7 pounds and now @ 7 weeks weights 9.3 pounds. Is that adequate weight gain?

My baby was born 6.7 pounds and now @ 7 weeks weights 9.3 pounds. Is that adequate weight gain?

Perfect!: Over the first couple of months, your baby's weight gain should average 15-30 grams a day (1/2 ounce to one ounce). I calculated your baby's gain and age of 7 weeks, so it is averaging 25 grams a day over that 7 weeks. That is fantasti and right on track! ...Read more

5 week old baby is constantly hungry. I've been breastfeeding him all day between 2 hour interval formula feeding.

5 week old baby is constantly hungry. I've been breastfeeding him all day between 2 hour interval  formula feeding.

Secondly are you burping frequently, and third at five weeks he may have colic, in which case swaddle him or put him in a swing after feeding. ...Read more

My 6 month old breast fed baby only drinks 5 ounces per bottle. She bottle feeds twice while I work for 8 hours. She is 18 pounds. She was born 8.5 oz?

My 6 month old breast fed baby only drinks 5 ounces per bottle. She bottle feeds twice while I work for 8 hours. She is 18 pounds. She was born 8.5 oz?

By weight is fine: She is likely getting much more when nursing directly from the breast. While you might expect her take more from the bottle at this size, she may prefer the breast and baby foods (presuming she's being fed some). As long as she's wetting aces diapers in that 8 hrs, is happy after feeds , don't worry. Offer a cup with water, too- it's time to start learning. ...Read more

Can i travel 24 hours in train with my one month old baby, born by ceaserean section?

Traveling with the baby on the inside, telling the curious that babies trying to nap, etc. Can help limit chance of illness.

Ultrasound measured foetus as 6 weeks 2 days one full week after measuring 5 weeks 6 days (just sac). Heart rate 126 i think miscarriage is likely?

Ultrasound measured foetus as 6 weeks 2 days one full week after measuring 5 weeks 6 days (just sac). Heart rate 126 i think miscarriage is likely?

Not necessarily: The fetus is now off by 4 days and the accuracy of us is about 4 days. Since the other measurement was the sac and this is the fetus, the different measurement may examine it all. The sac and the fetus do not always match exactly. The heart rate is normal so likely all is well. In any event, the next scan will be very helpful. Stay positive as these results to not suggest imminent miscarriage. ...Read more
