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.
