Yay for weight gain!

So I haven't really posted about this but G has had a hard time gaining weight. He was 8 lbs 4 oz at birth and lost a pound that first week. He finally got back to his birth weight at his one month check up. He was at the 70% for height and 12% for weight. At his two month check up he was still at the 70% for height but down to the 2% for weight. Yikes! We talked about options with the dr and decided to greatly increase formula feeding. I was nursing, pumping and using formula.

We had a weigh in today and he is up to the 4% for weight. Over half a pound in 10 days. He also grew longer and is now in the 75% for height. Yay for weight gain!

  • Woohoo! I know from experience what a relief that is! We went from 3% percentile to 12% after increasing formula! WTG!
