My daughter is 2 months 2 weeks old. Her birth weight was 3.16 kg. She is fully on breastfeeding. Now she is 3.8 kg. Till now she gained just 1 kg after losing some from her birth weight. Is this normal? She is wetting more than 10 cloth diapers a day and she is passing stools two days once. I used to feed more than 8 times a day. She gets satisfied after each feed. I'm worried that she is not gaining weight properly. Pls reply.

Yes its absolutely normal. Good urine output is a sign of adequate feeding and googd growth. Babies loose weight initailly after birth and then later start gaining it. As long as your baby is active, growing properly (reaching milestones on time). Nothing to worry. Normally babie wet 8-10 cotton nappies or 6-8 diapers in case if your are using diapers.
