Just Call Me Bessie

Apparently they weren't lying when they said "Milk...it does a body good!" LOL Baby E went in today for another weight check. he hadn't quite made his birth weight when we were there last week so we had to go for another. And has Jenn H said....HOLY COW...Literally! E is now 9lbs, having gained 11oz in 7 days. I nearly fell over in shock when we read the scale. I mean, I figured he was getting enough to eat as he would feed until he was "drunk" passed out and I can typically pump 4-5oz at a time, mostly from the opposite side. But wow...i wasn't expecting that much. So needless to say both my kiddos are happy, healthy, and love to eat!

Holy Moly!!! I can really only pump maybe an ounce or an ounce and a half (at best) at a time. I am producing a lot more now because of these growth spurts (supply and demand) and I haven't pumped in a while, so I should try again. I wish I could get 4-5 oz at a time, I'd have a whole stock by now, lol.

Wow... 11 oz in 7 days! That's impressive! Em gained 7 oz in 7 days last time. I'm interested to see his new weight. Mom thinks he's at least 8 lbs now, so we'll see.
