LO had a checkup today at 3 weeks 1 day.

She was 7.5 pounds at birth and now, she weighs 8.2 pounds :D

The nurses were very pleased, said she's in the average range for weight gain and their comments made me feel awesome :) I'm producing enough milk AND have a proper diet that's helping her gain :)

So proud <3

Well done you!!! I'm Breastfeeding too and my little one was 8lbs 1oz at birth and by 3 weeks she was 9lbs 12ozs! It feels amazing that they are doing so well on what we are providing for them!
I love Breastfeeding SO much, me and Lilly are really close and have bonded amazingly! Aaaah I love being a mummy :D

good job. I've been bfing my DD for 9 months now. Although she doesn't gain as fast as your LO, she's a petite baby in the 10th percentile but perfectly healthy. She was born 8 lbs 1 oz, and at her last checkup was one pound under double her birth weight.
