Gaining weight to fast?
My lo is 6 weeks old. She is a wonderful nurser. She eats every 2-3 hours during the day than goes to sleep around 8:30 and getting up at 2 and 5:30 at night. She has 6 wet / 3 poo diapers a day. She was 7ib 13 oz at birth and dropped down to 7 ib 6 oz by day 3. But by day 5 she was back at birthweight. And by 3 weeks was 9 Ibs. I'm worried that since she is only 6 weeks old and is over 11 Ibs that she is going to be an "fat" baby. Is there anything that I need to do or is this normal and I just have a bunch or skinny babies around she gets no supplements at all but I do have an overproduction and forceful let down on one side. Could that be what's making her chunky?
