Hi Pretthi dnt worry it's ok babies ll pee abt an average 8-12times nd it's indication of healthy baby along wit uptill 6month babies ll gain wt 600gm per month,still if ur confused Dan just make sure dat u feed ur baby after 1 n half -2hr gap,hv eye on babies huger cues, try to feed him as per demand,feed abt 15min on each side cz if u change the side early baby ll get only water content of milk nt the thick milk. If ur baby is nt satisfied Dan he ll bcm cranky ,irritated ,crying alz. tc

yes ur breastfeeding is sufficient u plj feed the baby single breast till fully drainage so that the baby will get hind milk means the fat contained milk that comes at the end of feeding having higher amount of fat it will helps to gain weight . for breast feeding don't worry just stay relaxed​ eat healthy n drink more water n also milk to produce enough milk so don't worry gud luck .

hiii birth weight is doubled at 6 month & triples at 1 yr . so u first check is it ok then no problems. initial months baby will gain 500 g per weight but slowly it will decreased around 200 to 300 g so don't worry if baby is active n achieved all milestones so nothing to worry hope it helps
