Weight Check

Babies are supposed to gain about an ounce a day. We went to the doctor today hoping that Sam had gained 7 ounces since last week. He gained 12. Our big guy is weighing in at a hefty 9 lbs 8.9 oz.

This is a huge relief to us, as we’ve been counting every milliliter he drinks and fretting over smaller feeds. The doctor is so happy with his weight gain that he doesn’t want to see us for three weeks. No more weekly weight checks!

  1. Yeah Sam! And yeah Emily and Dave for being so patient through the difficult feeding period. Your instincts were definitely on target, and I’m really glad the medicine is helping Sam. Who would have thought your little guy would be turning into such a big guy. I love his pudgy cheeks!

  2. Wow, we looks great! You two are doing such a great job with the feeding. I’m so glad that everyone is settling in so nicely.

    hugs,

    Katherine
