How often should I weigh my baby?

A healthy baby should steadily gain weight over time. You can compare weights day-to-day, or even a few days apart, to monitor your baby’s growth trends. Each day, your baby’s weight will change a bit, just like an adult’s would!

*A Little Note about Newborns: Know that it’s normal and expected that a newborn baby will lose some weight in the first week of life (We get it can be scary!). A 7-10% loss in weight is considered normal for breastfed babies. Most babies should regain this lost weight after two weeks of life. Concerned? Always check in with your pediatrician if you have questions about your baby’s weight.
