Hello Mrs. Diannisa, thank you for your question
First, you need to note that the baby's weight at two weeks from birth will experience a slight decrease, but will gradually increase after the second to fourth week. Furthermore, the baby will experience weight gain of about 140-200 grams per week.
So if your baby weighs 3300 grams at the age of 1 month, and 3800 grams at the age of two months, it can be said that the average weight gain per week is about 125 grams, which means your baby's weight gain is still within a reasonable range.
Variations in baby weight gain can be caused by several things, including:
It is also important to monitor the growth of the baby's weight using the same scale each time, so that the numbers obtained are more precise.
What you do in giving your baby exclusive breastfeeding is very appropriate, but it is important to evaluate whether your baby has been able to suckle properly. Because some babies are often found in an old state when breastfeeding, but the breast milk that is sucked in is less than optimal. This is often influenced by an inappropriate breastfeeding position that affects the attachment of the baby's mouth to the mother's breast.
You can consult directly with your doctor or lactation counselor regarding the breastfeeding position so that you can re-evaluate breastfeeding for your baby.
