Asked a question 2 years ago

I'm breastfeeding my 3.5 months boy baby. He was having proper weight gain until 3 months, last week I checked his weight at home and he was 6.5 kgs, today when I checked his weight he is only 6 kgs. He started to sleep longer for 4-5 hours in the night from this month. Could this be the reason for his weight loss? My baby is quite active in the mornings and sleeps at night. He also passes urine 4-5 times daily. Please advise

Where am I?

Your baby seems to be growing appropriately for age. I wouldn‘t worry too much about weekly weight checks. There can be variations. His weight would be checked during the well baby visits and your pediatrician would advise you if the weight gain wasn’t adequate. Until then continue to breastfeed your baby.
