Just a quick update:

Apparently I miscalculated Dayo’s birth weight. He wasn’t 8lbs 1oz like we thought. This was miscalculated because they record the weight in grammes, and then you have to convert it to lbs.

Yesterday the pediatrician worked it out for me on her scale, and when he was born he was actually 8lbs 8oz! And when she weighed him yesterday, he was 10lbs 2oz!! The pediatrician says that is normal weight gain, and he’s actually got a head start on other newborns because he was so big, but 10lbs 2oz!!???

I want to say I’m surprised, but I’m not because I’ve been lifting him the last week and I could tell he was close to 10lbs or more. Yet, hearing it is still a little astounding, because he’s just a month old and he’s already 10lbs!!!

I think I’m probably going to be switching to the bigger carriers soon.
