The average weight for a baby girl of 10 weeks is 5.3kg. Your baby's weight is well above this average and at 6.8kg her weight is in the top 2% for babies of her age. You need to look at her length as well as she may simply be a very big girl and not really be overweight.You are welcome to write in again giving me your baby's length so that I can advise you further.
