Hello, Nur HikmatuSaadah, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Normally, newborn babies will experience a weight loss of no more than 7-10% of their birth weight, then within 2 weeks there will be an increase in body weight. In the first month of life, babies will experience an increase in body weight of approximately 30 grams per day.
In a mother's baby, with a birth weight of 3300 grams and a current weight of 3125 grams, it means that it has decreased by approximately 5% of birth weight, so that it is still within normal limits. Maintain baby nutrition with exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months. Also pay attention to the frequency of breastfeeding and the amount the baby drinks, and watch for signs that he is still hungry or has had enough. Routinely go to the posyandu for regular checks on the baby's weight, body length, and development.
If you lose weight again, or other symptoms occur such as: vomiting, impaired drinking milk, bloating, fever, jaundice, the baby is lazy to drink, it is difficult to wake up, you should immediately take it to the doctor for examination.
Below are articles on "normal weight in babies", "benefits of exclusive breastfeeding," and "ideal breast milk intake for babies" to add more information about breastfeeding.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
