But my little Kendra is 3 months old and 19 lbs!! She is a chubby one
The only thing were having trouble with these days, and I don't know if its a growth spurt (because with her, its always a growth spurt!!) ...but she is eating every 2 hours again at night. She was doing so well, having 5-6 hr sleep spans, about 8-2ish, and now its every 2 hours. Also, she is fighting with sleeping in her crib/bassinett. I would brag about how well she slept in her crib (DD1 never slept in her crib, and at almost 3 yrs old still sleeps with us :S) so well, but shes been difficult. Anyone else having this problem? ......Lets hope its a growth spurt!
Anyways, I hope everyones LO are doing well!! I'm sure everyone has been quite busy with their new addition
Way to grow little Kendra! Glad to hear she's been doing so well. Gillian co-sleeps with me, she refuses to sleep anywhere else at night. I wish I made whipping cream, it seems I'm making skim milk this time, Gillian is 11lb10oz at 4 1/2 months.

I have some good stuff in my milk too! Nicholas was 17 lbs at his 4 month checkup! He woke up every hour last night to eat. ughh! Usually wakes up every couple hours and still co sleeps and nurses alot at night. It's a hard cycle to break! Hang in there!
Way to grow! DS was a small baby and I'm thinking Sophia is on the smaller side too, but she's still bigger than what DS was at 4 months. She was 13 lbs. at her 4 month appointment, but she has been following the same trend since birth so I'm not worried about it. I finally gave her a little bit of cereal yesterday with some fruit mixed in it. I was going to wait until 6 months, but she's been acting like she's ready. She ate that cereal up!
As for the sleeping, she was sleeping through the night and then just stopped at 3 months. Now we co-sleep and I sleep with one boob out. She latches on by herself through the night while I get to sleep. LOL! I've tried over and over to get her back to sleeping in her bassinet, but she's not having it at all!!

What a big girl! Caleb is huge too, about 18 lbs. He's super long and a bit chunky too .
We don't co-sleep full time. I am one who just can't sleep well with a baby in the bed. He sleeps in his crib right next to me until about 7am then I take him to bed with me to keep him quiet, snuggle and snooze until my other kids get up for the day. When he's having a really bad night I'll let him sleep with us and he definitely sleeps better so I can see him getting hooked if I do it too often. So no advice from me hehe, sorry!
