Update: My Boy Can Eat!

For those of you who were concerned about my son’s lack of weight gain as discussed in this post, I just wanted to let you know that after switching from breastfeeding to formula, he’s doing great!

I took him in for a weight check on Thursday and was thrilled to see he had gained nearly 2 lbs in a week. That was like 1/3 of his body weight. Think about it — if you weigh 150 lbs, it would be like you gaining 50 lbs in a week! (God help you if that happens of course, but just wanted to give some perspective.)

Now my 6-week-old weighs a somewhat respectable 8 lbs 6 oz. He still has more eating to do to catch up, but I’m so glad he’s finally getting a little pudge on his limbs and filling out those onesies. Thought you’d be happy to know, too.

    Great news. I'm so happy to hear he's thriving. And I'm very, very glad I've never gained weight at that rapid rate!
