We went to MT's 1 month appointment today. He weighs 8lbs 13oz. He is 22 inches long. He is in the 70th percentile in height and 25th percentile in weight. He is a good eater and the Dr encouraged us to try and get him to be interested in a 5oz bottle once a day - she suggested to try at night to see if he will make it through the night (6 ish hours). I told her that he has managed to do a few 6 hr nights already. She was impressed.
He does has an Umbilical Granuloma. She treated it with silver nitrate and we go back July 15th (my birthday) for his 2nd Hep B vaccination and to re-check the belly button and maybe re-treat the belly button with more silver nitrate.
He also has some extra skin around his lil boy part from the skin trying to re-attach itself from his circumsion. So his dr is sending us to a pedicatric urologist to assess the situation and mostlikely be re-circumsized. All in All - it was a great appointment. The Dr's are so accomedating, patient and educational for new parents. He goes back for his 2 month appointment Aug 15th.
I am a lil worried but seem to be much calmer about all these new things than when I was pregnant. If I was told this stuff big pre-delivery, I would have had to have a cry over it. But the Dr is just so good at re-assuring us things happen, and there are ways to improve the situation.
Thank you for the support on my last post. I am of the mindset that it does not have to be all or nothing - and I do know that not everything works for everyone. That is a hard lesson I learned dealing with IF. There is still no one equation that works for all - there are alot of choices and situations out there and it takes all kinds to make the world go round.
