He was born at 6lb 14oz and on day 5 was weighed again and was 6lb 12oz so had only lost 2oz which is amazing. Newborns normally lose a little weight after they are born and they are allowed up to 10% of their birth weight. The general rule is that they should be back up to their birth weight by the time they are 10 days old.
His cord fell off at 4 days old and he had his heel prick test done at 5 days old. One of the few times he has cried.
He is currently in size 1 nappies and wearing newborn clothes. They are quite big for him but fit really well in the length. He's just a skinny little dude!
Just like his big sister he is such a chilled out and calm baby. Not quite as chilled out as she was but still amazingly calm. He is also very alert and very strong already. He makes the same swan baby noises as Paige did when she was a newborn. He rarely ever cries just like Paige too. They are so very similar.
That's about it for the first week. He is doing amazingly well and we are soaking up the newborn stage while it lasts and loving every second.
