Chunky Monkey

Well, our boy finally seems to be getting the hang of this breastfeeding thing. On Monday, he weighed 8 pounds 5 ounces before his feeding at the lactation clinic. After his feeding, he weighed 8 pounds 7 ounces. That means he ate 2 ounces off of me.

I brought him for a weigh in on Friday just to see how he was doing. Wait (weight?) for it. He weighed......

8 pounds 12 ounces!

Our boy is a chunky monkey. Almost a whole pound heavier than his birth weight and he's not even three weeks old yet!

I am very pleased that he is getting the hang of nursing. And extremely relieved. He has a pediatrician appointment on Tuesday. Don't be surprised if he's pushing 9 pounds or slightly over.

My baby is getting so big! Cue tears.
