Re: Weight gain

my eldest put on a pound a week for the first 6 weeks. At 5 years old, she's as big as I was in the 1st grade, but not fat. Simply tall and appropriately shaped. For her, it really was baby fat, as I can see ribs anytime she takes off her shirt.

Re: Weight gain

My first did the same thing and we're on track for another chunk since this baby has already gained 1.5 pounds in less than 2 weeks. You can't over-nurse a baby
