Could I please ask if you would be kind enough to share your baby torts weights etc. As I would like to check and see how my little ones are doing compared to babies being raised by people with far more experience than I have.
Thank you, it would really be appreciated.

From What little I saw of Ayanda on TFO S/He is a stunning little tort. In the three months S/He has done much better than Rue did, but Kang, Clark and Harry are all doing extremely well by the looks of it. So I am happy so far, as I must be doing it right.

S/He is stunning. And your growth is amazing. My liitle one Kang I think will have the same growth rate. Well actually Clark and Harry too. These three have all been started off the correct way with soaking everyday and good variety of food and it very clearly shows compared to Rue. I was looking at their weights last night and Rue only picked up 6g in the first three months. Whereas Kang, Clark and Harry have tripled and or doubled their weights. I will post pics of their weight charts tonight. I forgot last night and didn't bring their book with to work.
