My son was 8.1lbs at birth and now, at 7 weeks, weighs 12lbs. He wasn't tiny when he was born, I know, but there are certainly bigger babies around. Like most healthy babies, he has rolls of fat on his arms and legs. He also has chubby cheeks. He was on the 50th percentile for everything and now has moved to the 75th.
I am soooo tired of hearing:
- wow, he's a big boy!
- what a bruiser!
- well, you're certainly feeding him! Etc.
He's a baby! I even had the CAFHS nurse imply I was abusing him by feeding on demand as he is 'greedy'. I am starting to get quite snarky at people because I can't for the life of me understand why they think they have the right to comment!
Ok, I seriously needed that vent...
