Baby girl born 9 days ago weighing 7 lbs 14 oz. Weighed today and was 8 lbs 8 oz. Is that good ?

In brief: Baby feeding

Weight gain at this age is good.
Most infants lose some weight during the first few days and regain their birth weight in the 1st 7-14 days. A 1 lb weight gain is unusual and may reflect an erroneous measurement or a baby that is taking a bottle very well. Either way, there is nothing to worry about at this time. If excessive weight gain persists, check with your pediatrician.
