Hold the press, Amy. Weight Gain? A Finer Thing?
Why yes, yes it is. (As long as I’m not the one gaining weight!)
Baby boy had his 2 week checkup this morning. I’ve been a little concerned about the massive amounts of spitting up he’s already known for. Massive amounts. I knew not to worry, though, unless
- he is in pain
- he doesn’t gain weight
Well, he hasn’t been in pain; but my emotional, sleep-deprived, hormonal Mama Heart was a wee bit concerned about the whole weight gaining thing. (I’ve cut out dairy and am watching my diet to see if/how it affects him.)
At birth he weighed 6 lbs. 14.8 oz. According to my doctor, the goal at two weeks is for babies to weigh what they weighed at birth, regaining what they (almost always) lose in those early days.
My little man? He tipped the scales at 7 lbs. 4 oz.
See? Told you weight gain is a Finer Thing!
