25How Many Ounces?
You always want to ask the pediatrician if your baby has lost or gained any ounces. There is a healthy number of pounds that your little one should be putting on. After your son or daughter’s first two weeks of life, they should start gaining one ounce a day for
their first month. Then, they should gain about a pound or two a month until they are six weeks old.
If your baby is gaining too much, especially if he or she is bottle fed, there is the chance that your baby is overfeeding. But if they are not gaining enough, there is the chance that your little one is not getting enough milk. This is a very important question to ask.
