Kendra Updates

HI Ladies!

First off, yesterday she latched on to my right side and emptied it, WITHOUT the nipple shield! thisis a first to latch and eat without the nipple shield, but its also the first time she actually ate a full meal from the breast too!! she kept it up ALL DAY! From left to right back and forth for the rest of the evening into this morning!! PLUS this morning i laid her down, she latched on and i was actually able to lay down and rest while she ate!! YAY! i hope she keeps this up, i would love love love to toss the nipple shields! Yahoo

Did i mention that she slept from 8pm until 5am last night? thats 8 hours!!! Biggrin

So this morning she had her check up. It went great. She is at 10lb 3.3. oz, 22 inches long, her head is 30cm. Dr said she is in the 25 percentile for weight and length. she gained 2 lbs and 3 oz in 5 weeks. She got her shots too, she didnt like that, but settled down pretty quick and went to sleep. he was impressed at how she held her up and how well she held herself up on her feet. im not saying she is advanced, im just saying what he said LOL No more appointment until next year!

and now for the funs stuff:

WTG on the breastfeeding, that's awesome. It sounds like Kendra is growing very well. I can only hope CJ will start sleeping longer stretches in.a month or two.
