Useful info: If baby was already larger and heavier than average at birth, they will normally stay that way. The same applies if they were smaller and thinner. Your doctor will tell you when checking their growth curve: the important thing is that they stay within their “corridor” between two curves.
Immediately after birth, baby will lose a few grams. Once their weight stabilises, they will gain around:
|Age group||Weight gain|
|0-3 months||30 to 25g per day|
|3-6 months||25 to 20g per day|
|6-9 months||20 to 15g per day|
|9-12 months||15 to 10g per day|
