Good Food + Nice Bed = Healthy weight gain!


This Christiana's milk mama from north of Tampa. We drove up to meet her while we were waiting for Iana to be released from the hospital. Her little girl is 14 lbs. at 10 weeks. It's good milk! We found her through Milk Share.
Sometimes Iana sleeps in her car seat and sometimes she sleeps in our suitcase. I lined it with a couple of towels and her blanket. Thanks for the idea, MckMama!
At her doctor's appointment, Iana weighed in at 6 lbs. 12 oz! They also measured her at 21 inches long. She was 6 lbs. 7 oz and 18 inches long. Either the measurements are a bit off or she's doing really well. The good news is that she's very healthy and cleared for travel.

I REEEAAALLY hope you're going to take her out of that before you pack for the journey home. :) She looks very cute in it.

A lot of times the length measurements are off because of the way the measure (usually they draw a line above a laying baby's head, then stretch the baby's legs out and draw a line below the toes). Mari was a few inches shorter at her week check. Go figure.

But the scales are usually pretty accurate!
