Wednesday weigh-in (6/25)

Every Wednesday, I take Benjamin to Parkridge East Hospital to the Breastfeeding Support Group to weigh and feed him. Weight gain is especially important for him b/c we want him as heavy as possible for his heart surgery. (His cardiologist, Dr. Herold--aka our new favorite person--said, "We need to have him chubbed up for the surgery."--Made me think of Hansel and Gretel!)

Benjamin has been sleeping through the night for about two weeks now, and we were told that we could let him do that as long as he was still gaining enough weight. The average weight gain weekly is five to seven ounces. And for the past two weeks he *has* gained enough! Here are the stats so far. (I plan to update my blog every Wednesday now.) :)

June 11 -- 9.10.5 lbs (+5.8 oz)

June 18 -- 9.15.8 lbs (+5.3 oz)

June 25 -- 10.06.4 lbs (+6.6 oz)
