I Had Gestational Diabeties And My Baby Isn't Gaining Weight

Does anyone know what's normal to expect with weight gain after a baby has been born with gestational diabetes? My baby was born weighing in at 10lb,12oz due to my having gestational diabetes. Now, almost 4 weeks later she still hasn't gained back to birth weight, and infact lost 6 oz this week even though she eats great. Is this normal? My pediatrician doesn't seem to know.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Her blood sugar should be checked out otherwise it seems normal.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
