The development and growth of infants is indeed a matter of great concern to parents when the baby is born and gets older. But weight is the main factor to see the nutrition of children who have entered. Babies in general will experience weight loss when it is born. This is a very normal thing.
This is not influenced by the lack of breast milk intake by the mother, but the weight of the baby's fall caused the baby to lose extra fluid in the baby's body. When in the womb, the baby is still in the amniotic fluid where the state of the fluid in the baby's body will continue to balance, after birth, the new environment temperature and weather can affect the fluids in the baby's body, therefore the baby's weight is reduced.
Usually the baby's weight will go down in about 5-7 days early in life. And after that weight will gradually return to normal. But if your baby is born prematurely, then weight gain will take a long time, about 21 days.
If your baby's weight has fallen dramatically to more than 12% of your birth weight, then this should be noted. Is adequate breast milk intake, are there other diseases such as heart, lung or digestive disorders. If your baby's body weight does not reach normal after 2-3 weeks, and the baby experiences excessive vomiting, fever, no appetite, weakness or not actively moving, then immediately check your child to the pediatrician to get proper treatment.
