    As long as they keep on increasing in weight all should be good.

    Weight goes according to breed/size.

    I weighed using grams.

    As long as the puppies look plump, are quiet between feeds & their skin returns quickly when you pinch it behind the neck - hydrated, then all should be fine.

    Puppies at a week old basically eat and sleep and are kept clean and toileted by mum. If she is attentive and doing her part and the puppies are crawling in for a feed and then fall asleep quietly afterwards I'd be happy.

    Now that you've weighed them you can keep track of their growth which helps alleviate your worries.
