After our doctor's appointment last Tuesday, I talked to Julie from La Leche League. After talking with me for a while, she told me that she thought the birth control I was on had decreased my milk supply. Possibly by half. Recommendation? Switch birth control and work to build up my milk supply. Check.
Reed and I went to St. George for the weekend to have a little vay-cay. While I was there, I supplemented him with formula when I didn't have milk for him--2 to 3 bottles a day. On Thursday, I stole the Fong's idea and weighed him on the Wii fit...He loved it (not sure why) and the Wii told us he was about 9 1/2 lbs. (Hooray!). On Sunday we decided to weigh him on the package scale at Deseret Book. My mom works there so had keys to get in...
He also loved the package scale. Aparently he likes laying on hard, rectangular surfaces. The scale told us he was about 10 lbs. (Double Hooray!)
And today we went to the doctor for a more accurate reading...
Head: 40.9 cm. (55th percentile)
Length: 22 in. (20th percentile)
Weight: 9 lbs. 13 oz. (5th percentile)
He gained a full pound in one week! Take that, failure to thrive!
