Everything in sight.

 

Which is why I'm still hanging on to the last 15lbs.

I think it's a metabolism thing... cause both of my babies  were / are EBF, but Em was like your baby-- long skinny and all legs.  She gained, and has always been healthy, but she has always gained slow and been tall.  She's only 23  lbs, 31 inches, right now at 19 months.  But Ozzy is ENORMOUS.  I don't think anything's different with my milk, just the way their bodies process it... I think Em is going to be one of those lucky girls, she has my sister's genes (my sister is 5'11" , 130 lbs, with legs about a mile long).

Makes sense...then Ellie *definitely* doesn't have my metabolism (lucky girl! lol.gif)  Does your sister want to trade genes?

I, too, think it can be metabolism but fat babies do not mean they will be chubby kids. My daughter was 20lbs at around 6 months, then like 22 at 18 months. She stopped putting on the pounds and instead shot up in height and is now a long and lean 7 year old. My son had the same baby-build and is now more solid than she is but still not chubby. I feel like I just make fatty milk :) Then tend to get leaner after weaning.

 

I think teeny babies are adorable too, the come in all sizes for a reason. Though I do love the chub my kids get. There's something hilarious about ankle rolls.

The local milk bank actually can test the caloric value of milk!  I was fascinated to find out that its nutritional content varies from woman to woman, and like you, m2c, I think mine is fatty/high calorie.  Although with only a single exception, the babies on both sides of our family are chubsters whether breast, formula or a combination of the two.

At two months my little chunker was 15lbs 4oz and 25".   Up from 9lb4oz at birth.  

post #27 of 29

I just had a 3 month visit and I'm totally upset and bleh.

Kiddo was tall and skinny at birth.  Tall and skinny at 6 weeks.  At 13 weeks, he's short and skinny.  He's barely grown at all in 6 weeks!  And he's a terrible nurser.  He's been fussing on my since day 1, but I thought he was fine until today.

At least I have a fantastic ped.  She told me to see if he will take a bottle - of breastmilk - and that she's seen fussy BF babies gain like crazy when mom goes back to work and pumps.  She said that he's strong and bright and happy, and to not even worry about supplementing unless he trends down at the next visit.

I nursed him there, and he was his usual self - very very lazy about it.  That's why she thinks he might take to the bottle.  His palette and tongue are fine.  She wants a poo diaper because he does seem to have sensitivity - I think maybe dairy - I ate more due to thanksgiving, his poops got goopy.

 

Sigh... I hope he's ok. I feel like crap b/c he's bad at feeding, like I should be able to make him suck heartily.  :(
