Hi everyone! I just got a baby that I knew was young and expecting to hand feed but it looks way younger than I expected. He is thriving a growing nicely, already gained 5 grams since yesterday. The woman i got him from said he is almost 3 weeks old and i dont think thats true. He looks to be around 10 days perhaps? Please look at the picture and let me know your thoughts. (Pictures were from Sunday, February 23rd, 2020)

How many grams do your baby weigh?
Yours looks pretty young to me.
I have see babies at 3 week mark weigh from 60 grams to 100 grams.

Since yours opened eyes, I would say he/she is at least 10 days old. But the weight seems close to a 2 weeks's old under weight baby. But, the baby skin tone looks good.

At this stage, keep the baby really warm , feed a little bit more may not be a problem as long as crop empty once a day.

Thank you very much, I've done a tone of reading and learning. He is kept warm and fed and seems healthy and active.
