Chunky Monkey/Cream for Milk....

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Mallory had her 5'day assessments done today. I can't believe I've had her for 5 whole days now!!!

Anyway, the reason for my excitement: she hasn't lost an ounce!!! In fact, in her 5 day life exclusively on breastmilk (Gosh, I feel as though her lips are glued to my boobs) she has GAINED 2oz up from her birthweight! So, even though she weighed a little more than 1/2lb less than her brother at birth, she now weighs more than he did at 1 week. LOL!

It's just so nice to have the reasurance that we're doing everything right...especially after the horrible experience it was trying to get Nolan to nurse. It's nice to have the proof that it's going well.

Just had to share my excitement with you girls cause I knew you'd understand...

Kudos to you and your amazing, miracle grow milk!!! :LOL That IS something to get excited about.

Actually I read somewhere that you produce more milk earlier with your second baby than you did with your first, though I can't remember where I saw that. Scares me a little, as the amount I made with dd was... well, let's just say there was a LOT of it.
