    Default We did a weight check today....

    and I am so excited!!

    We were discharged on friday, and she weighed 6lb14oz, and her birth weight was 7lb7oz. Today the health nurse came, and weighed her, and in 6 DAYS, she has gained almost a pound! She now weighs 7lbs 12 oz...!!
    I was soo worried she wasnt getting enough, but it looks like we're ok, and i am probbaly right about my thoughts of a possible oversupply...so i guess she is definetly nursing enough in 5-10 minutes on one bb per side!!!

    Just had t0o share my news with you !!

    Congrats! Doesn't it feel like a hue weight off your shoulders to see that weight come up in the early weeks? I definatly know how you feel, it validates that you are succeeding and the patterns of nursing your baby has developed are OK. You should be proud!!
