Once you give birth your next obsession is with your babies weight gain or loss. It is normal for a baby to loose +-10% of it’s body weight in the week or two following birth. It feels a bit scary, but it’s fine as long as they start gaining again. And the best part of being in England means the health visitor comes to your home to weight him from the convenience of your couch. How cute does this look?
Such precious little moments like these are not to go un-photographed, especially the first weigh-in. Jack didn’t like being naked (they hate being naked when very little) but he loved the sling/hammock and soon calmed down and fell asleep.
Jack gained weight well, despite my concerns about how much milk he vommed up after each feed.
