Five months and double her birth weight

Here is a picture of Elaine Roberts, my wonderful lactation consultant at Saint John's Health Center. Without her help, I might have given up on breastfeeding a long time ago. Since Summer was two weeks old, I've been obsessed with her weight, always worrying about if she is getting enough to eat. Elaine said that babies should be about double their birth weight at 5 months and triple their birth weight at 1 year. Summer is 5 months now and more than double her birth weight! :)
