How much weight should my child gain in the first year of life?

Alice S (Philadelphia)

Thank you for question, Alice. We hope your child is doing well and thank you for being a part of Blue Emerald Wellness where we hope to empower parents with health for their child.

In general, guidelines for growth in the first year are as follows – a baby should roughly double their weight by 6 months and triple their weight by a year. In addition, your baby should be showing steady gain of both height and weight on their growth curve. If you are concerned it is vitally important that you set up an appointment with your pediatrician to discuss.
