As it is, he nurses whenever he wants, which is really only 2 and a half or so hours, although I offer all the time and he is a 5-10 min nurser.
Anyway, I thought that was funny and had to share it.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
Homeschooling, Homesteading Mama to DD ('02) and DS ('04)
she's 15 months and just a little over 20 pounds...
exclusively b-fed until 6.5 months, then little solids.. even now, i'd say b-milk is more than 50% of her daily consumption..
am i making skim milk or something?
Ds #3 was a FAT baby he was born at 7 lbs 8 oz and at his 2 month checkup he was 16 lbs 7 oz, 4 months something like 22 lbs. He only nursed every 3 hrs for 10 min at a time and slept at night. At a year he was 30 lbs and at 2 yrs he's 33 lbs.
Quite in contrast to ds #2 who was 19 lbs at 1 year ( he nursed constantly) and at 5 yrs weighs 43 lbs (he's bulked up quite a bit in the last year).
Both are perfectly healthy boys.
My sons are 4 y 4 mo and 9 mo!
I explained that the 4 yo is small for his age, and the 9 mo is big. She thought I had a 3 yo and an 18 mo!
Gave me a chuckle.
He is a perfect chunky little monkey, wrist rolls and everything. I always say it's insurance in case he gets sick.
Good for you, everyone, not to listen to others opinions.
He was (and still is) a 5-10 minute nurser about every 2.5 hours. I guess he's a snacky kind of guy. inky
Good for you for helping him grow so well!
