As you may or may not have known, Jacob is not gaining weight as we would like.
We have had several weight check appointments & we are supplementing with formula & baby cereal. Our last weight check was about 2.5 weeks ago & he weighed 11 pounds. (maintaining/gaining from the previos week.)
So today was his 4 month well baby appointment.
Plop that baby on the scale &.... 11 lbs. (Oh no! But he is a happy baby, but he is an active baby, but he is an engaged baby, but he feels like he weighs more, but he weighs more on the home scale...)
In addition to the regular check-up stuff we make plans to help figure out the problem... (not limited to but including a referral to a pediatric gastrointerologist) Then the doctor say's lets check his weight again.
Thankfully he had that thought, because he is actually closer to 12 pounds!
(We are going to the GI doctor on Thursday anyway - Jacob spit up a lot while at his appointment this morning & he has been on baby Zantac for a month.)
So while seeing the 11 pounds gave us a scare, his situation is not as dire as it was...
Everything else is fine - length, head circumfrence, joints, social interaction, etc. He had 3 shots, but was fine after a bit of feeding. :o) (If nothing else, nursing really does have a calming effect for both of us.)
& he gets to start eating baby cereal in addition to just drinking it. :o)
