Answer: Hey, On an average newborn is suppose to gain 400-700gms in a month so that by the time he is 6months old his birthweight is doubled. Also net weight gain during first month is low as baby loses some of his weight during first few weeks after birth. So don't worry all is good with your baby. maintain a timely feeding schedule to help him gain weight at steady pace.
