> Puerperium: the loss of weight of the newborn

I weighed my son who is 2 months and a week and (unless I did wrong in the measurement, but I don’t think) I know that it is lost almost 90 grams since the previous weighing, dating back to a week ago.

The child is cooled down practically from when we got out of the hospital and this has always complicated feedings. The stern, often but not very much, or makes feedings extremely long, in short, so far, has always eaten a lot and in a disorderly fashion.

it amazes Me, the fall (which forò è arrived in coincidence of my cooling and a worsening of his) because, until now, has always taken a minimum of 200 grams a week. Now weighs 5,850 kg and has 2 months and 11 days.

actuallyà 2 months is pretty soon because, and would sleep all night and often, they wake up if the amount; of milk should be increased. Day complains or stern on a regular basis?
