Question: My baby is 5 month old now she is 6 kg n birth weight her 2 kg 400 gm it is ok na she is on bf
A healthy newborn is expected to lose 7% to 10% of the birth weight, but should regain that weight within the first 2 weeks or so after birth. During their first month, most newborns gain weight at a rate of about 1 ounce (30 grams) per day. Or 1 kg of weight each month till 6 month of age. So according to your babies birth you can calculate it.
