Yesterday was Grant's one week weight check appointment. At birth he weighed 7lbs. 13oz. at hospital discharge he weighed 7lbs.5oz., yesterday he weighed 7lbs. 11oz. We were so thrilled he is growing and gaining weight so easily. He is a GREAT eater and sleeper.
One thing I decided to do this time around was NOT to wake him up to eat at night, now I know this goes against all the nursing rules, but Grant sleeps 6-7 hours at night. Also, my milk came in within 24 hours. I think it's because when he actually woke up and ate he nursed so well cause he was really hungry. It was a great decision for us this time around, (wish I had thought of it sooner).
My best friend Laura took these wonderful pictures of Doodlebug #5 at four days old. I will treasure them forever! We are all doing great and adjusting well.
