Congrat's on the addition to the family! In the early sages of puppyhood they are still growing very rapidly and it doesn't seem like they are gaining weight, but the are!! It's kinda like kids when their young and then when they hit the teens they start to get a little chubby! How many times a day do you feed your pup? What name brand food are you feeding your new friend??? I would not be that concerned about weight unless he or she start to look like they are losing weight and not eating or throwing up!!!

It always a good thing to say aware of you pups eating habits......remember puppies can't talk to us!!! Food is their way of communicating how they are feeling!!! If their not eating...that's a problem!
