How much weight should newborns gain in their first few months? I forgot what my pedi said like a few oz a week or something?

Yeah I think it's a few ounces a week. But it's different for every baby. Asher was 8lbs 4ounces at birth and was up to 8lbs 13 ounces at 2 weeks. Hubs stepped on our scale holding Asher, then without him, and the difference was 10.6lbs. lol

He's just over a month old and EBF.
