Boob Scoop

Boob Scoop: When it comes to breastfed babies, gaining too quickly is generally not a concern since breastmilk is intended for their growing bodies. Breastfed babies tend to gain more quickly in the first three months (4 - 8 oz per wk) and then begin to lean out as they become more mobile. By the end of the first year, most have tripled or are close to tripling their birth weight. After year one, weight gain slows down but remains steady.
