Mom is 5'4 gave birth to a 5.10 pds baby. Mom Gained roughly 22 pds. Is baby in danger to any probs bc of low birth weight? He looks VERY tiny
Five pounds & 8 ozs. Or less is technically considered low birth weight. They really do look tiny don't they.
No. His size is still very normal even if he looks tiny. He will pick up his weight so fast now that he has brought himself into this world. I would probably feed him on a regular 3-4 hour schedule until his weight is over 8 pounds.
