    Ha! Look what I found on kellymom.

    6-12 months

    1.75 – 2.75 ounces per week

    You are at the high end of normal.

    Even this info is off. Anything from .5 a day to 2oz a day is range. At 0-6 months. So anything from 3.5oz a week up to 14oz a week is the "range" of normal. And it's obviously going to slow down when they start to move. Which just solidifies the idea that babies on all sides of the range are NORMAL and need not be compared.

    Way too lazy for formula

    woo-hoo! i hope this is a good "bump" for your confidence and that maybe it'll help you take a step toward getting out and starting to make some mom friends soon ... even just a quick walk around the block does wonders for my mental health!

    I agree Auderey, I had ppd with both and sometimes would just gasp fresh air and outside-ness to prevent a full panic attack.

    I very good bump indeed And the whole family actually got some decent sleep last night, so the positive vibes are abound! Thinking about taking a walk on the Erie Canal today with the baby because apparently we are going to get hit with an epic, massive snow storm next week? Definitely worth NIP if we're all going to be stranded for a few days lol

    ps i love babywearing walks in the snow - babywearing is so warm anyway, it's nice to put it to use!
