My Ds is now 3weeks & was born at 3.52kg

He has just been weighed 2days ago and is 4.10kg. Is this to much of a weight gain? He wants to feed a lot, just getting abit worried.

Is he breast-fed (BF) or formula fed (FF) ? I wouldn't say the weight gain is excessive. If BF, no worries, just give him the breast whenever he wants it.

He was exclusively BF for 2weeks but have now started formula too. So he's on both.

When they weighed him they should have plotted it on a graph in your red book. If he had jumped percentiles drastically and you needed to worry I'm sure the midwife /health visitor would have let you know
