That's normal, .Matt was 9 lbs 11 oz at birth and he left the hospital at 9 lbs. 5 oz. In the first few days at home he put on a 1/2 lb so he was 9 lbs 13 at his one week visit.

The paranoia does disappear (well get less anyway) after a few weeks when you get used to him and get more confident in your parenting skills :-)

Just thank god he doesn't have .Jaundice like my angel did and you have to make trips to the .Dr everyday after birth for a week and a half!

Kayoni makes 2 months on the 22nd and i'm just getting over my paranoia. But I was a nut with paranoia when I was pregnant.

He'll gain his weight back....My angel is a incredibly porker and is going to be "obese"...Or at least thats what her doctor says!!!

Good luck girl!!!

Worried = One Wonderful Mother!
Congradulations! Your baby boy is doing just fine, my little girl lost 6 oz. After her birth and within 1 1/2 wks. She was back up to birth weight.

My baby girl is almost 8 months old now, and she weighs 20 lbs. She only weighed 6 lbs, and 2 oz. At birth!!

Warning: they do grow up fast, so enjoy every second.

Good luck! :d

Awww...I'm sorry...Kayoni's were the same way. I promise it'll get better!!! I know it feels like it's taking forever, but it'll pass.


One question, did they tell you to stop breastfeeding and start pumping? I know my baby had a certain type of .Jaundice different from the .Jaundice that affect most babies, but it just makes me wonder if I could've breasfed anyways.


I'm just extreemly bitter that I can't breastfeed. My "let down" never happend because I was too busy and not resting enough. I had to go to the hospital to get her blood drawn everyday for a week and a half...How could I rest?!?


Anyways good luck girl....If you need anything, pm me.
