Drum roll please….
Last weeks weights:
Lincoln 6lbs 6.2oz
Wyatt 5lbs 7.9oz
This weeks weights:
Lincoln 7lbs 6oz
Wyatt 6lbs 6oz
That is HUGE folks!
I don’t know how we did it because really I don’t think we fed them that differently than the week before when their weight gain stalled out so drastically. It feels really good to see those numbers. The doctor couldn’t have been happier and I’m a little less stressed about it.
The boys seemed to be putting in a real effort to make weight today. As soon as he was off the scale Lincoln peed all over my mom when she was changing him and Wyatt dropped a big load as we sat waiting for the doctor to come in. Way to go guys, team players all the way!
So, Lincoln will probably drop a few of his supplements since he has been able to satisfy himself straight from the tap on a few occasions this week, we’ll wean slowly this time, make sure they are still gaining well at their 2 month appointment before we drop them altogether.
Wyatt is still putting up a fight when it comes to nursing. The past two days he’s nursed a total of 40 minutes. He’s already beat that today but it takes some coaxing. I still try to nurse him every time I feed him just in case the stars align and the mood is right, maybe we can get him to where his brother is at some point. To think, he was my good nurser in the beginning!
I just have to give a shout out to Carrie- seriously, the hands free nursing bustier has changed my life! I can supplement a baby! I can read a book! I can eat my lunch! Why did I not know about this earlier?
