    Jack was born on Monday and weighed 5lb 9oz. The midwife weighed him yesturday and he wieghed 5lb 7oz. I know that babies tend to loose a little bit of weight while feedings establishd so is that normal?

    sounds like you're doing well! Babies tend to loose weight for the first 2 weeks after birth, i remember my mw advising it was up to 10% before they get worried.

    So 10% is about 9oz for Jack so if we use that as a rough guide then youre doing great! :D
