    They are 3 weeks today! Are they all around 12 ounces? They should each weigh about one pound in another week when they are one month.

    If you feel comfortable that they are where they should be you can stop daily weighing. :)

    Did you weigh every 24 hours up until that point? I'm having to use a bowl as they will just move too much

    Yes 3 weeks it's gone so fast! Only one is just under 12 ounces but she is the runt all the others are over.

    Yes, most of us have had to use a bowl eventually! They sound good to go.

    Maybe weigh them every 3 days until they learn to eat solids. You still want to make sure no one falls behind.

    Yes I think I may check every 2 to 3 days to be safe. They are all trying to walk on all fours now and all playing with each other which is so lovely to watch. Mum sits abd wonders why they are suddenly mobile and cat like! I never realised how hard this all was plus 3 kids 2 dogs and work it's never ending but very rewarding to see them grow
