that's how much this baby gained in a week! Holy growth spurt! He has been doing that 'nursing every 45 minutes of the hour' thing since fri/sat, no wonder!

7lbs6oz at birth
6lbs13oz at 2 days
7lbs1oz after eating at 5 days
9lbs2oz naked and empty at 20 days
10lbs4oz naked and empty at 27 days

His 1 month check is next tuesday. His brother was 7lbs4oz at 2 days and 12lbs even at his 1 month check... I think the baby is trying to compete with his brother lol!

Yay for great growth! As exhausting as it is, it does make you feel better when you see just how much they've grown.

wow! I think Kessler is working towards a growth spurt. He's been cluster feeding some and my boobs are super full at the moment. Gotta go wake him up to get some relief!

Hooray for breastfed babies! Sarah gained 14 oz from her 1 week appointment to her 2 week appointment. Our doc was really impressed, too.

Way to grow big guy! It's so satisfying knowing you are giving your baby everything he needs to grow big and strong!
