    My Lo has put on 2lb 1oz in 2 weeks...so proud!

    After so many people telling me I should FF instead cuz my Lo won't grow properly and will always be hungry I can show them they are talking rubbish! :)

    Just had to share :) xxx

    Thats great; the new growth charts actually reflect that BF babies do gain more quickly on average in the first four months than FF babies, its really the optimum growth pattern for a baby to gain more in the first four months and less thereafter xx

    Mind you, I better not get too smug just yet because my nipples are starting to feel a bit sore. With him getting bigger and heavier im struggling to get him in the right position to latch properly and I think I've been letting him latch too shallow (especially at night when I'm tired) because it hasnt been sore really...but its starting to sting a little now, especially on one side. :-s

    My DS2 doubled his birth weight by 8 weeks on boobie juice alone. It was made for babies, anyone who says otherwise is, well, daft.

    That's fantastic!

    My LO has put on over a pound every weekly checkup so far bar one when he put on about half a pound. He was 11lbs 3oz last week at 4 weeks, 8lbs 5oz at birth. Isn't it a great feeling!
