    My LO had a really nasty virus and lost 5.5oz in 8days - HV not too worried coz he was ill ...
    But ...
    She wants him to regain it quickly but his appetite seems normal not increase and I thought weight gain slowed around now anyway.
    She seems very keen on early weaning (not what I want) I'm going to try and see the other nicer HV but if I get stick wwith this one I'd like to be well informed of what to expect and also up to date

    I wouldn't worry about him gaining it back quickly, as long as he's gaining then he's fine - obviously if there are enough wet and dirty nappies etc etc. Maybe leave it a few weeks before weighing again so you're not putting too much pressure on yourself to have it gained back in a couple of weeks?
