My first dd is 5 weeks old. I had a csection at 39wks, and she was 7lbs4oz and 19.5 inches. I have been ebf on demand, and at her one month checkup she was 10lbs14oz! That's 3lbs10oz gain in a month, and she was 21 inches. I was proud my baby was getting so big, but since then have heard nothing but underhanded insults about overfeeding my big fat dd. People call her chubby, (which there are times I call her my little chunkers, but that's because I think she's adorable with her little round belly) they look at me like I'm doing something wrong. My mother said to just let her cry between feedings, that she's too dependant on me. I think that sounds like a load of horse shit, so I'm posting here in hopes that ebfing on demand is still the right thing to do.
I eat only healthy fats and foods, am 5'5" and 126lbs. Dh is 6'1" and 170lbs, so we aren't heavy, if that makes any difference.
Here is my pretty baby passed out after nursing.
