    Wow, their heads really do look huge at 4 weeks!

    Penny was about 9 to 9 1/2 weeks when i got her, so I'm no help. But cute pics!

    mine looks like a mix between a 4 week old and a six week old.
    seems like she's not growing, maybe i just worried.
    She wieghs like 15 grams right now.
    i know she's under wieght, but she does not act like it, she eats a blue berry within 5 minutes, she scarfs everything down

    i'm feeding her yogurt with her esbilac now.
    i bought some strawberry yoplait yogurt today for her....is that ok?
    it says it 99% fat free. and no sugar substitutes.

    DO NOT give her fat free yogurt. She NEEDS the fat in the yogurt, and she's just going to fill up on something with fewer nutrients than she needs. Try to find the Dannon La Creme I mentioned to you before.




    Also avoid anything that says Low Fat, No Fat, Light, Lite, etc.

    She needs the fat. Dairy fat is good for babies.

    You can use heavy whipping cream (in a carton by the milk--NOT Redi Whip or anything in a can) as it also contains a lot of dairy fat.

    Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt (NOT Non-Fat or Low Fat) is also ok.



    The only problem is the container is large if you're feeding one little flyer and it'll start going bad before it's used up.

    I feed Teddy & Christine Yoplait Original. (Not Fat-Free). They like it & I like that it has more calcium in it.

    Total Fat - Grams 1.5
    Cholesterol - mg 10
    Sodium - mg 80
    Potassium - mg 260
    Total Carbohydrate - grams 33
    Dietary Fiber - grams 0
    Sugars - grams 27
    Protein - grams 5

    % DV Vitamin A 15
    % DV Vitamin C 0
    % DV Calcium 20
    % DV Iron 0
    % DV Vitamin D 20
    % DV Phosphorus 15

    Either one, in my opinion, is a good choice. Just stay away from Fat free, sugar-free, low-fat, low-sugar.....all of those phrases. (And, flavors are ok. Teddy gets bored after a few days, so I'll buy two or three flavors at a time & rotate them when he's decided he's had enough of one. (You can get Vanilla Creme in a single serving container if you want to keep the flavor simple for her.)

    It would make a good starter cage..The height is good but he will need more room to move around as he gets older...

    Do you have a photobucket account? That's an easy and free way to share pictures. You can upload the photos there and copy/paste the IMG code here.

    Somewhere there's another way. Let me go find it.

    Shanon, I'll have to look for that kind. I had glanced at the Yoplait section and it seemed they were all Low Fat.

    Chrissy, I agree with TP, that'll make a good starter cage.

    she has shirt dived many many times since yesterday too....that was her first time.
    she's doing so good....when she runs across my arm, she leap to my chest...it's so cute.
