Update on Brody
Fri, 09-14-2012 - 2:34pm

I know I still need to post his birth story and pics, but since I'm still working on that I thought I'd give you all an update from today's pediatrician appointment. At his last appointment on Sept. 1, Brody weighed 5 lbs 13 oz--just one ounce shy of his birth weight, which everyone thought was really good especially considering he was IUGR. Today, not quite two weeks later, he weighed in at an amazing 7 lbs 11 oz. I was shocked! I knew he was gaining because he's getting a little pudgier but to have gained almost two pounds in less than two weeks just through breastfeeding... wow!! I'm so proud... of my baby and my boobs! LOL!

Needless to say, he's doing great and turning into quite the little bruiser. :smileywink: I promise I will get that birth story and pics posted SOON!

You SHOULD be proud! It's so amazing what our bodies can do... to grow a person inside us then provides milk to continue to grow them on the outside - with NOTHING but our bodies. So cool.
I'm glad he's gaining!

Way to go Mama!  Jami lost 1/2 oz at her 1 week weigh in, so I'm hoping she's gained by Tuesday or they'll be forcing formula on her.  Glad to hear your little man is gaining so well!
