Doubling birth weight?
When should babies double their birth weight? I’m finding mixed reviews online, and of course I’ll ask her doctor next week at our appointment, but just curious if you mamas knew first!
Babe was born 6#12, and is 9 weeks old tomorrow. At her last appointment on April 12 she was 9#9 and while I asked if her weight gain was normal then, he didn’t seem concerned.
I got on the scale alone and then with her and subtracted the difference yesterday and it seems that she’s 11#11. Almost double her birth weight.
She seems to eat a lot, but seems happy and content. Am I overfeeding her? She gets 4oz every 3 hours or so during the day and a closer to 5-6oz in the evening and in the middle of the night. Surely with all their growth spurts in the first 3 months it’s normal, right??
Picture for reference 😬
