Neonatal weight loss and gain patterns in caesarean section born infants: Integrative systematic review
from Maternal & Child Nutrition
Most babies are routinely weighed following birth and again within the first week of life (World Health Organization, 2015). It is common and physiologically normal for babies to lose a small amount of weight within the first few days of birth due to body fluid adjustments [Modi, Bétrémieux, Midgley, & Hartnoll, 2000; National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), 2017].
