Babies Lose Weight After Birth?

Did you know babies lose weight after birth?⁠

But don't worry this is 100% NORMAL.

Babies are born with a little bit of extra fluid and will urinate/stool this fluid out in the first few days. ⁠

Healthy babies will lose about 7-10 % of their body weight but should gain it back in the first 2 weeks.

You shall keep a close eye on their weight and this is why those first few visits are SOOOO very important.

If your baby isn't gaining its weight back this can be a sign of something more complicated and your baby may need additional check up.
