Such cute babies! PG lovely to see since you aren't on FB group.

I need to make an effort to post here more!!! I'm sure there is a lot of stuff we are going through that we could help each other with.......

I'm NOT with the big baby club, though, I have my tiny wee Clara. She is just over 9 lbs at 9 weeks!! Has her 2 month appt next week so we'll see what they say......we are feeding her tons and she gets weighed at my mom and baby group every week. But she is in the 4th percentile. Lots of wet and dirty nappies.....I wish she were chubby, though! It would help me feel better.

Allie, I think babies just grow how they want to grow. My first was sooo chubby and my friends daughter was teeny. She is 4 months younger. They are now almost the same height and weight and are both very healthy children.
Iíll try to post more as well. This is all I got thow for now. Itís 5.30am and I am feeding. He slept 5.5 hours!!!

Hahaha Mom15 to the heavy cream! How much did babes weigh at birth? Thats a great weight!

Sawyer is about 11 lbs now at 7 weeks so almost a 5 lb gain since birth! His newborn clothes are all packed away already and his 0-3 month clothes are quickly getting tight! To me this is super exciting because 1) I am so not sentimental and 2) I highly dislike the newborn stage. Lol I love my daughters age and being able to interact and communicate fully with her unbelievable little mind and personality!

PG bfing is going great!! Ever since Sawyer had his tongue tie clipped its been smooth sailing! Have sooooo much regret not knowing about it and struggling so much bfing my daughter for that year. I feel like our dynamic would be quite different if there wasnt so much pain and frustration surrounding it. :í( Nothing I can do about it now but my anxiety ridden self cant let it go. Happy at least I wont have the same difficulties this time around and feel like I can easily give him a year of breastmilk like I did for Delilah. How is nursing going for you?

Dylan has gained about 5lb since birth going from 9lb 11 to 14lb 14oz in nearly 7 weeks.
Clara may just be a petite girl when she grows up. As long as she's feeding and has good nappies then she must be getting everything she needs.

That's great about the bfing Rach. I have to say that since Dylan has his done it's been much better, even though he still clicks but he does this with a bottle and when he sucks his hand so I think it must be just his way as he's gaining enough.

Its 3:30am here and I'm knackered! We're on 2 hour wake ups again but it's taking an hour to feed and settle him so I'm feeling be tired.

Theo def isnít tongue tied, but he clicks too when nursing. I just think he has a bit of a lazy latch. lol. If I donít hold my boob for him or hold him really close he tends to unlatch. I think my let down is so forceful he never had to work hard to get milk.

Donít remember who I talked to about cloth diapers, but I have been using a brand called Ąbest bottomsď and really like them. My friend gave me a ton of them that her coworker gave her. They look brand new and they work great! Just thought Iíd share if anyone is interested in cloth diaper info/opinions.

Sawyer clicks too some times. I think its if my boobs are on the fuller side and my letdown is a bit more foreceful. It seems that milk seeps out and I think its too slippery for a good latch. I’ll just take him off, wipe my boob and his chin then put him back on and it usually helps.
