Is it possible that newborn is not gaining weight?

I have a newborn who is 9 days old. He weighed 7 lbs 4 oz at birth. Before getting discharged from the hospital his weight went down to 6lbs 11 oz. A home health nurse took his weight the day after we came home and told us he was at 6 lbs 15 oz. I was really happy that it sounded like my little one was well on his way back to his birth weight. He is giving at least 6 wet diapers and 4 poop diapers, which is supposed to be the minimum for his age but I'm still worried that I'm not making enough to milk for him. So I bought a baby scale and weighed him today and it looks like his weight is down to 6 lbs 11 oz. Is it possible that newborn is losing weight even though diaper output is good or is the scale that I bought broken? I'd like to hear other people's experiences. I'm worried and perplexed.
