    Hi all

    Charlie my little boy was born on the 4th October at 33+5 weeks. He weighed 4lb 15oz when he was born and is now 4lb 12oz now at 3 weeks old. We are lucky in that we he is at home and is doing well, being monitored by an out reach team that is run in our area for premature babies. We have only just started going out with him as we have been watching his weight and wanted him to gain a little bit of the weight he had lost befor we took him out.

    I didnt realise how scary it is when you first take them out I was constantly checking to make sure he was ok wasnt too hot or cold.

    His weight gain hasnt been vast, i am breast feeding and apparently its normal that they dont gain as much weight as bottle fed babies.

    Hope to chat to you all soon.

    Jo and Charlie

    Aww babe, congratulations. I'm sure he'll grow big and strong soon enough....nope, breastfed babies don't usually put weight on quite as quickly as bottle fed babies but hey....what's the rush. Can I see a pic of your precious little fella? :happydance:
