Patrick, Week 7

2011_09_06 Week 7

Patrick was weighed and measured yesterday by the health visitor and he growing like a crazy boy! He is 5.69kg which puts him at the 90th percentile and his length is 55cm, which is 50th percentile. This explains the incessant feeding, especially in the evening. No wonder I am knackered. The health visitor suggested we either give him one bottle of formula in the evening (I'm not keen), or I can pump during the day and then give him this in the evening (my preferred option, but I need to get a double bump.

He is starting to grab hold of things ie the muslins and wraps. I am trying to tame his nails, because he keeps scratching himself. Oh, and today I think I got my first genuine smile :-)
