Is it normal for a newborn to lose weight after they are born?
Yes, during the first week of life a baby can lose up to 10% of their weight.
Usually this is nothing to worry about.
Make sure you come in for your scheduled “well child” exams so we can make sure everything is ok. If there are concerns about your baby’s weight, we may schedule more frequent weight checks.
