Not so Skinny Baby!

Hurray! I went to my doctor this morning and Lillian gained 6.5oz in a week! He said babies her age should gain 6oz in a week so she is doing amazing. I'm so excited. He told me that whatever I'm doing is working and to keep it up. So I'm going to keep tracking her eating to make sure she eats 8-10 times a day, which usually means every 2.5-3 hours, and weigh her bi-weekly on our scale, which does 1/5th of pounds, to make sure her weight keeps moving up nicely. She goes back in 3 weeks so she should go up 18oz by that appointment so we're looking at her needing to be over 13lbs by then, so I know what I'm aiming for. My doctor even commented on her chubby cheeks. So now I'm feeling great and can stop stressing about my little one!

Please enjoy the photo of my baby and my hubby. You can see how much she looks like her daddy!

  1. Aw, so happy for you - my friend has a baby that was having trouble gaining weight, so I know it can be stressful....
