While at the post office I took the liberty of putting Bagel on the scale. With clothes and a (dry) diaper he weighed 8 lbs. 14 oz., which is 1 lb. 10 oz. more than his birth weight two weeks ago. He is starting to plump up and get some folds. This is very heartening, since he's nursed rather erratically. One day he'll eat like there's no tomorrow, and the next he'll nurse 5 minutes on only one side (owwww.... engorgement...) I haven't been too worried, though; he's been "outputting" a sufficient amount, so I know he has to be "inputting" a sufficient amount as well.
