I just thought I'd give you all an update on how we are doing. Sam is growing at an alarming rate and is such a little star, but of course we are biased!
Some of you will know that he was 10lbs 2 ozs at birth'(40+15) we go for a weigh in next week but judging by holding him on the scales he's roughly 16-17lbs now! He was measured at six weeks and was 65 cms in length (off the scale for height on percentile terms) so he is likely to be tall like his daddy (6ft 5). I am solely breastfeeding him and he feeds on demand roughly 8-10 times a day. I seem to have lost all of my pregnancy weight now, which is great and I am back down to a size 10/12.
I went to a baby group last week and he was the size of the other babies that were much older than him, the other mothers almost seemed to doubt he was only 8 weeks. He is in 3-6 month old clothes and has been for over two weeks, in the middle size of bambino mio nappies and is already heading to 6-9 months old clothes. He is growing so fast...
Has anyone else experienced something similar? I am thrilled that Sam is putting on weight and thriving so please don't think that I am complaining at all but so far I haven't met anyone with a LO (ha ha) who is in a similar situation. I don't think it's possible to over feed a breast fed baby can you?!
Last night he also managed to sleep 8 hours straight for the first time, which was great
