Re: Disappointed, ready to give up - hel
Perhaps someone more knowledgeable could jump in, but I think that this number -- 7 oz -- is too high. Sure, it can be that high or higher, but I think some babies grow only 3-4 oz a week and are fine. The key is to see growth on the curve that MommaL posted, so you could do the math from there to see what your weekly "goal" should be.
