Hi - I took my son for his 2-month appointment last Tuesday and to a LC appointment this morning. In these 6 days, he's gained just 3 oz. The LC said that it could be because of the variance between the pediatrician's scale and her scale. But should I worry, since the average week-to-week gain is 7 oz.?
She didn't seem concerned because his overall weight gain has been really good (born at 8 lbs, 10 oz., and at 2 months is 14 lbs). She also weighed him before and after I fed him and he got about 3 oz. from one side (we didn't weigh him after the other side).
He's exclusively breast-fed (with the very occasional bottle of expressed milk) and seems happy, rarely fusses and sleeps well. I just can't help but worry when I look at the averages. It seems too early for weight gain to slow down.
