I wish I could say exactly what happened to make this baby start gaining lbs again, but it seems like a bit of a mystery to us, one that we are just enjoying! I have added some coconut oil and cooked egg yolk to her diet. That might play a role, and perhaps she is also stronger on her own to nurse like she should. Whatever it is, its a joy to watch her not only get heavier each week but also make her way up the chart again. Now at 5 months she has passed the 15th percentile on her way up!
She still has a ways to go to catch up to big sister, but no worries! If she gets there or not doesn't matter, we are just happy with the way she is going now.
She has gotten much stronger as well. She still does not have the grasp in her hands that other babies her age do. For that I have started exercising her plus putting her on the tummy -- a lot. I believe we'll get there soon, with lots of love and patience and some extra attention! She is such a special little gift to our family. We all adore her, and she is so loved!
