Check up

After our ER/NICU experience when Crew was 6 days old (there will be a separate post on that), we were going in for check ups every couple days. After he started to gain weight they wanted us back in again after two weeks for another check up...just to be sure he was gaining weight. Today was that two week check up. Here are the results:

Weight 2 weeks ago: 5 pounds 13 ounces
Length 2 weeks ago: 19 inches

Weight today: 6 pounds 11 1/2 ounces
Length today: 20 inches

YAY!!! The doctor is VERY VERY pleased and so are we! I've been strictly nursing him and I was worried he wasn't getting the full amount every 3 hours. He always seems hungry after so I never can tell how much he's getting. Every once in a while we will offer him a bottle to see if he'll drink it and he usually just sucks on it without swallowing. It's so difficult for me to be sure. But today confirmed it to me that breast feeding is going well for us!! This makes me feel more confident with everything! YAY!!

Yay! I'm so glad things are going well. Breast feeding is tricky. I always worried about that too. It's just hard to know how much they're getting...I wish there was some way to know. It sounds like he's getting just what he needs though. Way to go Crew...and way to go Kelsey too!
