One Month Old

Stella is one month old today - hard to believe! She is sleeping really well, in fact I often have to wake her up to feed her. Seems wrong, but since she hasn't been gaining weight well, I have to feed her every 2-3 hours. She lost a lot of weight the first week after she was born, and has been slow to put it back on. I am working with a lactation consultant and feel confident we will get a good handle on it soon. She just now got back to her birth weight.

Stella is a very sweet, happy, cuddly baby. She loves to be held and just curls into the person holding her. I think she looks like a little mouse!
