2 week Dr appt

Lucas had his 2 week appt yesterday. He weighed 7 lbs 9 ozs and is 20.5 inches long. So in 2 weeks he put on a pound and grew an inch. The Dr was pleased with his growth and said everything looks good. His left eye tear duct is clogged, which the Dr said is common and should work itself out. He gave him a prescription for a vitamin D supplement. He said they didn't use to prescribe it for ff babies since the formula is fortified, but they do now since they're finding out how important a vitamin it is...especially here in the pacific nw. He failed his hearing test in the hospital so we have a followup appt with audiology next week to re-test. I'm not worried about it since i've seen him react to noises around the house. The day they tested at the hospital he was having some gassy tummy issues due to the type of formula the hospital uses so he didn't stay still enough for the test.

Speaking of formula I have some samples of Enfamil and Similac i'd be happy to send to one of you if want them. We use Gerber Good Start since the others make him gassy and uncomfortable. They did with ds1 too so I wasn't too surprised when they didn't sit well with Lucas.

Glad he is doing so well! My DD developed a clogged tear duct after she turned 1 and it crops up every now and then but is pretty much a non-issue 90% of the time.

Glad the appt went well!! Brayden had a clogged tear duct and it cleared up fine after a few days....hopefully he does good at his next hearing test!

sounds like a good apt.... KUP on the hearing test, which sounds like will be fine.
