One of my twins did that when she was about 3 months old and pediatrician had me add extra formula to their bottles.

I think that is normal. If we weigh every day we will do that. It may be that one day she is eating more than the other or she may have not had a bowel movement. As long as it does not drop a few pounds in a short time it should be fine. A few ounces losing then gaining back is fine. They are both around the same weight of my nephew that is 5 months old. Good luck and God bless.

My boys always gained, never lost. Have you talked to their doctor about it? If they think everything is fine and she's eating fine then I wouldn't worry.
