Your baby is growing normally. Healthy babies can be a range of sizes, but the course of development tends to be fairly predictable. At checkups, a doctor will look at your child’s height, weight, and age to see if your child is growing as expected. below in this article, we will cover the Boys Average Weight Newborn To Teenage.
The average weight of a newborn is around 7 to 7 1/2 pounds (3.2 to 3.4 kg). Most healthy newborns weigh anywhere from 5 pounds 11 ounces to 8 pounds 6 ounces (2.6 to 3.8 kg). Low birth weight is less than 5 pounds 8 ounces (2.5 kg) at full term, and larger than average is a birth weight over 8 pounds 13 ounces (4.0 kg).
Baby Weight Gain in the First Year
what you can generally expect in the first 12 months of baby life.
First two weeks: During the first few days of life, it’s normal for both breastfed and bottle-fed newborns to lose weight. A bottle-fed baby may lose up to 5 percent of his body weight, and an exclusively breastfed newborn can lose up to 10 percent. But, within two weeks, most newborns regain all the weight they have lost and return to their birth weight.
By one month: Most infants will gain about a pound over their birth weight by month one. At this age, infants are not as sleepy, they begin developing a regular feeding pattern, and they have a stronger suck during feedings.
By six months: Average, babies gain about one pound each month for the first six months. The average weight at six months is about 17 pounds 8 ounces (7.9 kg) for boys.
By one year: Between six months and one year, weight gain slows down a little. Most babies double their birth weight by five to six months of age and triple it by the time they are a year old. By one year, the average weight of boys weighing about 21 pounds 3 ounces (9.6 kg).
