Q&A: How Much Weight Should Baby Gain?
How quickly should I expect my breastfed baby to gain weight?
ByErin van Vuuren
All babies are different, but on average, a breastfed baby’s weight gain should look something like this:
Month 1:4-7 ounces per week (after the first week)
Months 2-6: 1-2 pounds per month
Months 6-12: about 1 pound per month
