Re: How old is your baby and how much does s/he sleep?

Elaina will be 4 weeks tomorrow. She sleeps pretty much all the time. She typically does 2-3hr stretches day and night. Sometimes she does one 4 hr stretch at night.

Re: Early/late/on time baby poll

Elaina was born at exactly 36 weeks ( by just a couple of hours being born at 2:37am). The nurses couldn't wait to get her on the scale to see how much she weighed because she looked big. 7lb 1oz.

I am 3 weeks out and still have to wear a light pad. Every time I put a panty liner on my body starts again. (Like it knows or something.) I usually have to wear something for 6 weeks. It's annoying.

Re: Birthmarks

Re: big baby

Re: Not gaining :(

Sorry you are dealing with this. I am too and my milk supply is terrible. I started supplementing with formula. She finally started gaining weight. I hate to supplement this early but, oh well.
