The baby came yesterday morning four and a half lbs. tiny little thing. Taking care of her while wife takes short 2 hr naps between feeding. Baby care is hard

Ouch how early was baby then? That's so tiny, she(?) must feel like a porcelain doll in your arms; much love to you and yours, hope you are all doing well and mummy recovers quickly, congratulations!

Month early she's tiny but fully developed. She does feel like a fragile little thing but I think all babys feel that way so I don't have any reference

Oh. I'm sorry, I didn't know that when I congratulated you. Is she doing alright?

We had fat babies, none of the newborn clothes fit but it did mean they were lifting their heads before long. I was always jealous of people with their little babies, but oh my goodness it always felt like I was going to break them. So cute, my sister just had a 8lb-er so I'm very broody at the moment hahaha.

Newborn clothes don't fit a 4 lb baby either. At least I got luckily and bought a car seat the fits 4lb kids and not 5 otherwise I'd be having to buy another car seat

Very true. We find the expenses rack up with the first one, by the second you know more about what you need and absolutely don't; in our case we skipped newborn sizes entirely for baby two.

Congratulations, man! Glad for you!
