Part of this is xp to my lodge, but I wanted to post here too and hopefully get some good info on the Vit D drops...
Preston had his 1mth appt today. He's doing great. He was 10lb 5.5oz -- he's gained almost 4lbs since we were discharged from the hospital :eek:. Knew he was nursing like a champ! They measured him at 21" but I think they measured short bc that's only a 1/2 inch over his birth length. The pedi even suggested they have measured short but didn't recheck -- said it didn't matter really anyways as long as we see an upward trend on the curve later.
The pedi said we should start Vit D drops by 2mths of age. I know with Alexa we didn't use them -- we had the Tri-Vi-Sol with her and she always spit them out and I just didn't really see the need so we used them maybe a handful of times. Anyone have good info on the Vit D drops? I'm mostly of the belief that BM has everything in it that the baby needs, but we do live in a climate that doesn't always get a lot of sun (Pacific Northwest). We are heading into spring and summer though. Trying to decide, so would love some good info if anyone has some!
Here's a pic I took yesterday on Preston's 1mth birthday :mrgreen:
