MOST HELPFUL POSTS

Sounds okay. If your son took 10 days to regain the weight he lost when he was born, and then gained 5oz in a week, he's right on track.
The main thing is to make sure that he's producing lots of wet diapers.
It's also difficult to weigh babies accurately. If you're concerned and trying to track his weight closely make sure that he is always weighed naked on the same scale. Even then, keep in mind that a fully belly and a fully bowel can make a baby seem "heavier" than they really are at a weigh in and an empty belly and bowel can produce a baby who seems lighter than you expect if their gut was fully the last time they were weighed.
