I took Calen in for a weight check today so I could write down his one month weight in his baby book and

He was 9 lbs 7 oz at birth. I've never known a breastfed baby to plump up so quickly!

That's awesome! And my nephew plumped up fast and was breastfed! My little guy gained a pound in a week and is EBF! :-)

Wow - here I am getting sad that we used the last of the newborn diapers yesterday - these size 1 diapers seem so big!

They are growing up fast already!
Calen wore size 1 diapers in the hospital--the newborn size was too small for him at birth... I put him in a onesie yesterday that was 3/6 month and it fit him perfectly... I wonder if he is going to level off anytime soon or keep growing at this rate...

I am with you on feeling sad with moving up in sizes. Bruce was 7lbs 14 ounces a week and a half ago (so I'm sure he's over 8 now) and has now went through 2 sizes of diapers/clother. He was 4lbs 14 oz at birth and wearing premie stuff (clothes and diapers). He was only in them for a bit and then moved on into newborn stuff. This past week he has moved up to size 1 diapers and the 0-3 month clothing. :( Granted he's 7 weeks today, but it's going by so fast.

My little man has grown so quickly too! He was 9lbs 2 oz at birth and at 4 weeks he was 12lbs 3 oz! It's totally normal for bf babies to plump up fast the first 6 months or so and then slow down :)
