Natalie finally had her 2-week check-up (although she is 3.5 weeks).

She has grown tremendously. She was in the really low percentiles at birth and 4-day appt. Now she is over 50th in everything.

Birth weight: 7lb13oz
Current weight: 9lb2oz (66%)

Birth length: 18 inches
Current length: 21.5 inches! (88%)

Current head: 35.9cm (53%)

I have to say that I'm greatly relieved with her growth. Since Andrea has always been just above the average, I expected the same from this one and it really threw me when she was so short at birth. Guess that is what happens when baby is born almost 3 weeks early.

She is really gassy so going to try giving up dairy for a week. It might help me get more sleep if she doesn't spend the whole night grunting.... Lol

Glad she is more "on track" for growth with where you thought she'd be anyway. GL on giving up the dairy - my pedi told me it can take up to 2 weeks for cutting something from your diet to prove whether it is helping or not, so it is tough! My DD was dairy "sensitive" (not allergic, but if I had too much it would affect her).
