I just wanted to share. We've been exclusively breastfeeding for two weeks now, and our doc wanted a weight check to make sure that would be okay. Well, Ds gained almost a full pound in those two weeks! He went from 8 lbs 7 oz to 9 lbs 6 oz. I'm so excited! : No more fortifying and supplementing!

Yeah!!

I remember being pleasantly suprised when our DS had gained 1 1/2 pounds in the first 3 weeks on just breastmilk. Some babies definitely grow well on mama's milk!

Congratulations - how fab, fab, fab :

I'm expressing round the clock atm for my two 32 weekers who were born 9 days ago. I dream of being able to nurse them exclusively. You give me hope
