My baby is 11 days old today. When he was born he weighed 7.14 and at 2 days old he weighed 7.4. We had big issues with jaundice but I never felt pressured to supplement, I stuck to sunlight and the doctor sent us home with a biliblanket to use at home.

Well today my little man is 11 days old and he weighs 8 pounds! The doctor was happy that he had already surpassed his birth weight. He also is looking great and his jaundice is almost gone. Just had to share my excitement with someone. He is my third and I was pressured to supplement with my first for similar issues. So glad I knew better this time! :)

I just had my 3rd 2 months ago and she has been my first breastfeeder. I wish I was more educated about breastfeeding with my other 2. But I came from a family with NO breastfeeding at all not since my greatgrandma. So I know the excitement u feel when u know it's all going good! Congrats!
