In brief: 4 oz to 8 oz
Average baby gains about 1 to 2 lb a month .
How ever every baby is different. Minimum weight gain should be at least a 4 oz /week.

In brief: About 1 oz per day
Most babies in the first few months will gain about 1 ounce per day after returning to birthweight.
Most babies double their birthweight by 5-6 months of age.
