Question
My daughter who is my first born weighed 2.58kg. She's 6weeks1day and weighs 3.4kg (home scale) my mum says I weighed 2.5kg at birth too. We (myself and daugher) were born at 38weeks GA.
I am breastfeeding exclusively. Please advise. Thanks a whole lot

Answer
Hi, Titi,

Please ask a question and I would be happy to help you.  From what I can see, she is gaining weight and I assume the doctor she is seeing says she is healthy.  I don't have a growth curve in front of me, but it sounds like she is gaining well.

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
