Just after he turned 5 months old we weighed Kyton and discovered that he weighed 22 pounds. Dylan is so clever and decided to ‘Catch’ our
little big 22 pound boy!*
He is off the charts, and I’ve come to realize that this is actually a good thing.
The research, lactation consultants and my supportive friends remind me that since he is entirely breast fed, and eats on demand he’s supposed to gain quite a bit of weight in the first 6 months. His doctor said that he is getting longer and heavier at the same rate so there is no reason to worry.
I know I sound wimpy, but I actually feel more pregnant carrying Kyton in the front pack then I did with my 3 pound pregnancy weight gain.
Since November Kyton has increased from 22 to 23 pounds. Now that he is moving more he has actually lost weight.
I love seeing them together!
Over the last week Kyton has decided that he no longer needs his afternoon bottle. This means no more pumping for me! He also has decided that he will no longer drink from a bottle. I’m not too happy with this since he cluster eats every hour all evening. If I need to be away from him, we may have a problem.
*No actual babies were thrown during the catch 22 photo shoot. Kyton never left Dylan’s hands, and was slowly raised into the air and lowered.
