    Why do you ask? Are you concerned about your lo's weight gain?

    it's different for every baby what matters more than the number is the individual growth for that specific baby.

    with Paige and Jenna. There are babies who gain a pound a week and babies who gain just 5 oz a week, and that's all in the realm of normal variation. I think we're a little shy of saying "well, my baby was born at x lbs and weighed y lbs at a month" because we don't want anyone judging their baby's growth by how our kids grew, and because there are better, more accurate ways to assess growth.

    I believe 5-7oz per week is "normal". However 4oz can be normal too.

    Looks like she's gaining just fine: http://www.kellymom.com/babyconcerns/growth/chart3.html

    Has she always been weighed naked, on the same scale? Has she been sick recently? Either of those two things could account for a 1 oz difference in baby's weight.
