Anyone else have a giant bf'ed baby? I think Ella is perfect but there is no denying she's a big baby! I dk how much she weighs now since we don't go back to the dr until 2 months but she was 8 lbs 15 oz at her 2 week check up! She had gained 14 oz in 10 days at that point. So Im thinking she is at least 11 lbs if not more & she is only a month old....whew!

I am so anxious to get Maddie weighed at her one month appointment on Monday. She was 8lb 11oz @ birth, 8 lb 6 oz @ 5 days old and only 8 lb 9 oz @ 12 days old. My doctor said that they look for them to at least be back to birth weight by 2 weeks so she was in track. I tried weighing her yesterday on our scale and it showed 9 lbs. I know it's not completely accurate because I had to weigh myself and then hold her, etc. My other two were not fast gainers so we shall see if Maddie follows their trend.

My oldest was 30 pounds by a year old (bf until 6 months) while ds was only 14 pounds at 6 months and bf until 9 months. Aubrey has almost doubled her birth weight and is almost 8 1/2 pounds now at 6 weeks. I think it just depends on baby.

He sleeps 6 hours at night?! I am so envious! Becca slept for 4 one night and I was so thrilled. You are lucky!

Oh, sorry Danielle, I meant to post that Rebecca goes about 3 hours on average at night between feedings. Less during the day.

I think he sleeps for so long at night because he's such a big guy and eats a lot :)

I'm not sure what Dillon weighs right now but he's definitely gained quite a bit in the last two weeks, I can see it on him and he outgrew all his newborn clothes!

I've been pumping this past week to work up a supply and I've been getting 3oz out of each breast. Dillon usually finishes off one breast and sometimes drinks from the other, especially at night, he always drinks from both sides.

He wants to eat every 1.5 hours during the day, unless he's taking a long nap. He consistently sleeps 5-6 hours at night.

He weighed 7lbs 8 oz at birth and that's what he weighed at his two week appt. Looking forward to seeing how much he weighs but his next appt isn't until the 20th.

Aubrey just went to the doctor Thursday and she has almost doubled her birth weight in 7 weeks. She's up to 9lbs 2oz now. She's almost to the point where you wouldn't know she was under 5 pounds.

Kami, I agree with you, it is kind of weird that our babies are getting so "old". I feel like time is flying by so quickly!

I wish I had a scale...I'd at least get a "rough" estimate for Ella. I'm still thinking 11 ish pounds and she is 6 weeks old! Grow baby grow. Her nickname switches between little bird and big momma!
