Really. He is fat. I am used to bringing home 7 1/2 pound babies that are swimming in their little onsies...not this guy. He fills them out just fine.
And he has the eating habits to prove it. When I brought him home from the hospital he would nurse completely & then still finish off a 2 oz bottle. It was a little insane & time consuming, but I think we have the formula days behind us.
Although, as you can imagine, that means, I am feeding him what feels like every 5 minutes. Good side: I get to eat whatever I want to sustain his life. Bad side: I'm feeding him every 5 minutes.
I am hoping that what you always hear about fat babies turns out to be true & he starts sleeping like a champ...um, tonight.
But until then, we are doing great as a family of 5.
This recovery has by far been my fastest & easiest & for that I am grateful...because there are 2 other little mouths that need feeding & kissing.
