Reassurance about baby’s weight
My baby was born at 39 weeks weighing 6lbs 4oz. He is happy, healthy and no concerns. I believed this was within the range of a healthy birth weight.
But on a few occasions I’ve had people ask how much he weighed at birth and when I tell them their response is “oh gosh, so he was small then 😕” - and they’d say it in quite a negative tone. As if to say it’s something I should be concerned about?
I had him weighed at 5 weeks and at that point he was 9lbs exactly.
Should I be concerned about his weight or am I letting stupid people get in my head?
