Weight Gain

Hey everyone! I was wondering if you could share your experience with initial weight gain for your puppies. I can't find a weight chart anywhere online.

Also, Linnie's nipples are very red and she acts like they are sore. She hasn't been as eager to feed the puppies recently, and when she does, she appears uncomfortable. She doesn't want to leave them, and is constantly cleaning them and letting them sleep around here.

I'll be calling the Vet in the morning to get her advice, but thought I would run it by you guys too!

Thanks for any advice!

warm compresses and lanolin (as was said). no soap ever.
weight gain varies between pups. dont worry. :)
weigh every other day you should see an oz added at minimum
some of the chunky monkeys will gain a few oz in 48 hours! lol

and mom may not want to leave now, but about week 3 or 4
you will be getting some soulful help me eyes!!
