We had our first Dr. appointment today. I'm happy to report that we were only 30 minutes late, seeing how there's an extra person to get ready - one that doesn't understand the concept of "delayed gratification" yet, esp. as it relates to mama's boobs.
weight: 6lbs, 14oz (3125g)
length: 20in (51cm)
head circumference: 34cm
at one week:
weight: 7lbs, 4oz (3291g)
head circumference: 35.2cm
At one week, babies are expected to have re-gained their birth weight. My little chunker has an extra 6oz, and I can see them. It's all neck rolls...
The lactation consultant confirmed my self-diagnosis of oversupply and gave me some tips on how to no longer force the poor child to overeat (it makes him extremely spitty-uppy). I'm so much more at peace with his "snacky" feedings now. He gets so much food in such a short time that he doesn't need to eat for a long time. Beauty.
I also nursed in public for the first time today. In front of the hospital building on a bench, waiting for daddy to pull the car around.
And so we're all growing and doing well...
