18 lbs

I weighed her this week and she's now the same weight that Isaac was when he was at 8 1/2 months old... 8.22 kg or just over 18 lbs.

In the voluntary work that I do I support mums who breastfeed and I've heard women's fears about not producing enough milk because they don't leak or they can't express and someone (often a midwife or health visitor) has told them that means they're not producing enough milk and they need to top up with formula. I very occasionally leak at night if I'm not wearing a bra and I find it very hard to express milk and yet I'm obviously producing enough milk not only for Isabel for for my 3 year old too.
