Babies typically lose some weight after birth and then start gaining shortly after. I think baby is right on track. :)

I think that sounds perfectly normal. Most babies lose weight and they want them back at their birth weight by 2 weeks, so gaining a pound after that sounds fine to me. My son only gained maybe a pound and a half at his one month appointment. He was 6 pounds 7 ounces at birth and was 6 pounds when we left the hospital.
