Answer: Hi dear, Since her birth weight was low,it ia obvious to have little issues with weight gain.Right now your milk is the only source of nutrition for our baby.moreover the first 7 days baby would.loose all water weight.so you would find some loss of weight in baby ,which is normal.but baby should gain back the birth weight in next three weeks .and with in first three months baby must double the birth weight .frequent feeding especially every 2-3 hours in first month and then 3-4 hours in second month is must for healthy weight gain.you need to eat healthy so that baby gains faster.,you need to consume: eat balanced diet including fresh vegetables and fruits. increase your diet by eating extra 500 calories in a day.include lot of proteins, especially from animal meat.like egg,chicken,mutton ,fish.drink plenty of water too Feed from one breast full,only then hind milk,which is the richest milk can be accessible to your baby.foremilk is thinner and only quenches thirst

Answer: Hi, as per the birth weight the baby has gained a good weight in this two months. Which is actually very good and as per the age also it is appropriate. Hence there is nothing to worry. Continue feeding the same way and also give a good massage to the baby daily if possible twice a day.
