The title compound, C7H13NO3, adopts an approximately planar conformation. The torsion angles in the aliphatic chain between the carbonyl group C atoms range from 172.97 (14) to 179.38 (14)° and the r.m.s. deviation of all non-H atoms is 0.059 Å. The crystal packing is dominated by two strong N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds involving the amide groups and forming R
2(8) rings and C(4) chains. Overall, a two-dimensional network parallel to (100) is formed. A weak inter­molecular C—H⋯O inter­action is also present.
