We had our 7th baby 1 day short of two weeks ago, and he is the third I am breastfeeding. I came here a bit with our 5th, so I figured I'd visit back
He is such a good baby so far. He was born at 8-3, dropped to 7-13 at 2 days and is back to 8-9 (yesterday weighed on the kitchen scale LOL) He has an awake time from 5pm-8pm, then sleeps til midnight or 1. It's a little inconvenient because of dinner time, but DH and I are early to bed type of people and that sleep sure is nice!
I am a little wary about weight gain because #6 stopped gaining weight for some reason at 9ish months. Even after switching to formula and 'junk food' he didn't gain until after 12 months, so I feel guilty for stopping breastfeeding. It obviously wasn't the issue.
Hi and CONGRATS! Wow what a cute brood you`ve got!
I`ve only got 2, but both of mine stopped gaining like crazy right around 9 months too, which was when both of them were moving around, crawling and scooting and cruising. My DS was eating like a champ at that point and still didn`t gain much between 9 and 12 months, but he`s happy and healthy so I`m not too concerned. My doctor said that was pretty normal!
Good luck on your nursing journey! Hope it continues to go well for you both!
Thanks to Mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for this beautiful sig!
Your family is SO beautiful. Congratulations!!!! My little guy was my biggest baby at birth and now my smallest 1 year old. CRAZY. He eats all the time too, but my pedi wasn't too concerned. He's been walking since 8 months and I think that has something to do with it. Totally normal, but I know how worrisome it is. Just had to tell you congrats on your newest addition.
