A few things to keep in mind when evaluating weight gain
A 5-7% weight loss during the first 3-4 days after birth is normal. A 10% weight loss is sometimes considered normal, but this amount of weight loss is a sign that the breastfeeding needs to be evaluated.

If baby does not regain birth weight by two weeks, this is a sign that the breastfeeding needs to be evaluated.
