The Christmas rush always makes life more hectic and stressful.  This year we thought we would add a little more stress. 
Last Friday Tennyson had her 2 month well baby visit.  She weighed in at 8 lbs 15 oz.  That is a total of 1 lb 5 oz gain since birth.  That is a little behind schedule.  She is in the whopping 3% for weight.  So the Dr has put us on an increased number of feedings for a week to see if that helps her out.  Now I really feel like all I do is nurse.  My little sister did the same thing and then gained about 3lbs in her second month.  I hope Tennyson does the same thing.
I just hate all the wondering and guessing.

Try not to stress too much... it can effect your milk supply.... (sorry, I know, one more thing to worry about- I've been there- oh and remember fenugreek) If it makes you feel any better, my girls were always small. Lucy is catching up finally now that she is 4. Cassidy has been at 5-10% for weight her whole life. Last month she was 5th for weight and off the charts for her large melon:)
You're a great mama- I am sure she'll catch up:)

I always had tiny babies, too. Annie didn't even make it on the chart...LOL. She is still so low, but she's perfect just the way she is as skinny, little Annie. I'm sure Tennyson will catch up. I'll bet it is stressful though trying to find extra time to feed her.
