4 month appt

We also had our 4 month appt yesterday, and it went well. Sammy is 14 pounds 13 oz, and 26 1/2" long. I guess he's dropped percentiles in weight, though not in length, so he's kind of long for his weight But the Ped wasn't concerned and says she thinks he's doing fine, so I am happy about that! There's always this insecurity when nursing, since I don't know for sure they're getting enough to eat. But he looks healthy, so that's good. He has a cold right now, but she said it's not in his lungs and he seems pretty good to her. The only downside to the appt was when she noticed that some of the skin needed to be pulled back on his penis. She did so, and Sammy and I both cried. It's a little red now, and it makes me feel a little squeamish and sad when I go to change his diaper. Poor guy. Hopefully it heals up soon and I can keep it clean and prevent it from sticking together again.

I hope hes feeling better now! Both my boys had to have the skin on their penis pulled back after it healed wrong. I hated seeing them in pain over it. The doctor never warned me about what he was gonna do, he just yanked it and all I heard was screaming.

Wow, you really DO need to find a new guy for them! Our ped. was really nice about it and told me why and what before she did anything. Still, I wasn't quite expecting it to be quite as intense as it was, and I was a little traumatized by it I think. I think Sammy's over it, though, lol, expect when I clean him, it's still a little tender I think.

Ditto Katie abt your ped Joy! Wow!

When Tanner was circumcised I felt soooo horrible about it for the first day. But after that it was smooth sailing, and my guilt went away Wink haha

See, Tanner really is small, huh? He is the same length as Sammy, but two pounds lighter.

I am glad that the appt went well other than the traumatic incident!
