2.6 kgs!

In our society today, weight gain issues are usually thought to belong to young (and not-so-young) girls. AND, for them, the aim is for no weight gain.

For babies, weight gain is something to be proud of. And, as a breastfeeding mother, Aaron and I have come under criticism MANY times for his lean look. "You don't have enough milk" "Your milk is not good enough" I even had a doctor recommend I start him on ABM (artificial baby milk or Formula).

Just as well I am stubborn and thick skinned (or maybe deaf). I have been, and am, determined to prove that Aaron will thrive on my breastmilk alone. Aaron is due for a checkup and I had already started to think of my responses to further suggestions of ABM. Not anymore!

Aaron has gained 2.6kgs in the past 4 months. This is 0.9kgs MORE than the average weight gain required for this time.

I'll leave Aaron to give this look to the doctor at any suggestions of ABM.

Ooh... I love that evil look! Muhahaha! Aaron must be pissed at something, or thinking, "why does my mama keep bringing me these quaint places in Malaysia and Indonesia. Enough already! I want to go back to Bali!"

Man, I wished I had the same problem. Unfortunately, it has always been the reverse to me.
