WOW. Way to go! Sounds like nursing is going well...and if you're doubly lucky, he's sucking the pounds off of you, too!

I think it took DD two months to gain a pound after she was born. And a lot longer to get up to 9 pounds!

My sister was 9lb 11oz when she was born. HUGE. Her collar bone broke when coming out, but she was fine pretty quickly. I think that's one of the reasons they watch baby size and due date nowadays.

WOW!! Way to go! Gotta love that mama's milk!

Mindfully parenting DD 8/04 & DS 11/08, Human beings are the only mammals who do not nurse their offspring to full term.
