Day 5 - The big weigh in.
Total is the first weigh in for Baby J. The health visitor is due to visit to see how he is progressing. This is a moment that can fill a new mother with dread. How much weight has my little baby lost? Will I be judged as being a bad mother if my baby has not maintained birth weight?
Little J weighed 3.04kg at birth. He was not as small as you would think as this is only 6lb 11. He was very long, and very very skinny.
At the 5th day weigh in he had INCREASED!!!! to a fabulous 3.1kg (6lb 13). I am a very proud mummy, and suddenly the round the clock feeding seems worth it.
