I’d like to do a post each Wednesday with a weigh in on Ryley and myself (once I get the ok from the doctor to sort working out, etc.) So I’m a day late on this one, life with a newborn is a bit hard to schedule, but here it is…..drum roll please…..she weighs in at 7 pounds 7 ounces! She’s gained almost a full pound since birth and a pound and a half since her lowest weight. She’s right on track!
In the beginning breastfeeding wasn’t easy, although it still isn’t, so I had to pump to make sure my milk came in. I was constantly worried that I wasn’t producing enough milk for her. A feeling of inadequacy was hard to deal with. I was the life support of my child and I felt horrible that I was struggling to provide for her. But thankfully things are working out and she’s gaining weight great. I still stress about it but it’s getting easier.
|This is us out for a walk after our weigh in. It was our first solo adventure 🙂|
|I wanted to do newborn pics but they are SO spency so I figured I could do some of my own. Isn’t she the cutest little thing!|
|This is her just about a week old. You can tell she’s grown already 🙂|
I can’t wait to see her continue to grow. She gets stronger every day. It’s the coolest thing. She’s started hugging my arm while I give her the pacifier. It’s pretty adorable 🙂
I’d write more but she’s awake and hungry so have to head off. Thanks!
