Sounds like my second son! He was also 14 pounds at 6 weeks, and 18 pounds 2 ounces at 3 1/2 months. It's unbelieveable how fast they grow!!

Yeah the sad thing about big babies is that they seem to grow up so fast. I miss my little newborn.

we sure have some big babies here

Kienan was just over 12lbs at 8 weeks, he started out at 6lbs 7oz so he is growing fast. He started out in preemie clothes and is now in 3-6 months, but quickly outgrowing the tops. Diaperwise he is nicely in the one-size diapers with small cover

Wow, y'all grow monster babies! My ds was 10 lbs 10 oz at 3 weeks (was 9 3 at birth) so he is probably 11.5 lbs right now (which makes sense, b/c all of his clothes that say up to 12 lbs are getting tight.)

At 5 weeks we are finally into somewhat of a schedule... I take him to bed around 11 or so and we cosleep, which for me means I really don't fully awaken for nighttime feedings so I can't say how long he is sleeping at night.. but he gets up around 7 grunting and he is up for maybe an hour, then takes a good morning nap usually. He has started smiling a lot lately and has started cooing too.. I just love it when you can tell they are trying to coo SO hard and then something comes out and they start kicking their legs and swinging their arms like crazy because this is just so exciting for them. I this stage.

When I started reading this thread, I was getting all jealous reading about how babies are sleeping on changing tables, near the dryer, etc etc, because I can't get dd to sleep during the day to save my life, except on my morning walk when she's in the sling. As soon as I'm back home and no longer walking...she's awake for the day.

And then...


today I tried putting her in the swing (which she usually only tolerates for 5 minutes or so before screaming Take Me Outta Here!!)


And..2 1/2 hours later...she's still sleeping in it!
I can't believe it! This is historic! And I actually am typing with two hands!


It's the little things...ya know?

Lucas has fallen asleep on the changing table too. He loves it there that sometimes I'll leave him there for a few minutes and he'll go to sleep for a bit.

At his 6 wk appointment, he was 10lbs 13ozs, up from 7lbs 14 ozs at birth. He's really long so some 3-6 month onesies don't fit. So sad. He's getting big so fast...

I was cursing the doctor last night for convincing me to do the regular vax schedule-- Haakon screamed for 90 minutes last night. There was no way for me to hold him without hurting his little legs. He's been feverish and sleepy for most of the day now. I hope he doesnt wake up ready to party in the middle of the night. DH is at work (24 hour shift) and it gets rough for me, knowing that I need to be up and at'em for the Bear by 8am. I know my situation isn't as challenging as most other moms but I am not acclamated to it yet. I miss napping with my newborn the way I could with Bear.
Hawk is becoming a cooing expert--he's seems so connected to me. he is genuinely pleased when I echo his sounds. Yeah, we're gellin'! still working on the whole hand-control thing . . but getting there.

Fiona was 4 weeks old yesterday. I don't know exactly how much she weighs, but I would guess she's around 10 lbs. She's starting to outgrow all of the newborn diapers. I just ordered some small and medium cds and bought a pack of size 1 sposies (I haven't found a good overnight cd so we do sposies at night). She is a good sleeper once she gets to sleep. We go to bed around 930-10 and she wakes up around 230 to nurse and get a diaper change, then she'll wake up again around 600 for another nursing and diaper change. Around 800-830, I usually have to wake her up when I take DD1 to the babysitter or we have to run errands, but then she sleeps in the car. Her wakeful, alert time is usually in the evenings.

I had a question for you all....she has been crying and acting very uncomfortable every time she poops. It has also changed in color from yellow to green. Do you think its something I am eating? I plan to not eat any dairy today to see if that makes a difference. Just wondering what ya'll thought.

It could be something you ate, but it could also be hindmilk/foremilk imbalance.

My 8 week old just got his first tooth! :

Green usually means gas. Could be from something you ate or from swallowing air.

Woohoo! I have early teeth cutters too, but so far no sign of them for Nate. A.J. had his two bottom teeth by 3 months though! Did he show any signs of teething??

I have been dealing with darker poop and food issues as well. turns out it was dairy for us. i would recommend cutting it out for more than a day though, according to our ped it takes several days to really get it out of your system. after no dairy for a week and half we started trying to add it back one serving at a time and wham! the fussiness came back, clear as day.

He did cry the past couple nights for about a half hour, which is a lot for him and kinda chewed on our fingers a bit, but I was still realy surprised.

I agree with what everyone said. Green for us is usually foremilk imbalance but the pain is usually gas related. good luck with the dairy, remember it takes 2 weeks for it to be totally out of your system.

I know. The funny part is he was chomping on DP's hand last week, so he asked me how early can they teethe and I said not this early.

I just cut out dairy for the past week, I *so* missed my cheese and milk, too!

We are having green poops as well, cutting out dairy didn't do it for us, but DS has a cold, so it could be related to that...

good luck, keep us posted
