My son was born 2 1/2 weeks ago on Thursday September 18. He was 7 pounds 9 ounces. On Monday September 22, he had a doctors appointment and weighed 6 pounds 9 ounces. The following Monday September 29, he was weighed at another appointment and he was 7 pounds 10 ounces. And on Wednesday October 1, he had gained almost a pound, 8 pounds 6 ounces.. He had gained almost 2 pounds in 2 weeks and almost 1 pound in 2 days! My son loves to eat! I am breastfeeding him by the way. He started off eating for 15- 20 minutes and sometimes would eat ( with breaks) for an hour or more! But now he only likes to snack ( eat for 5-10 minutes) so he's constantly eating. Is he gaining too much weight too fast?
