Thalia had her two month check up yesterday. We switched pediatricians because something was just not right with the last one and the place was inconveniently far. This new place is soooo awesome. The dr did a very thorough exam and said she looks good. We are waiting a week so that they can get her records from the other place to give her her 2 month shots.
Something that was a bit concerning is that Thalia does not seem to have grown much since our last appointment on 10/7. Then she weighed 7.7 and was 19 inches, yesterday they said she was 7.13 and 20 inches :eek: Something has to be off there and I'm thinking maybe the scale at the last place was wrong or the girl read it wrong (it was not a digital scale) The new dr said we'll keep an eye on it. She definitely has an umbilical hernia, dr said they dont make any decisions or do anything about it until she's 2 and it should go away on its own. Thalia's gas is more under control and I mentioned to the dr that I was told to give her maalox and the dr looked at me like I had five heads and said we do not give baby maalox, not even older kids. She said the gas drops are fine because they are not absorbed by the baby. She gave us some other pointers as to the gas including chamomile tea. As far as her growth the dr said she is right on target as she wants to see her gain a pound every two weeks which is where she's at now.
I'm back to work, having mixed feelings about it. My mom is at home with the baby. As far as bf goes now I'm actually putting her to the breast and she still latches (I know I am SO backwards) I'm pumping at work which is going well. We're still working on scheduled and proper latching especially on the right side. It was real though at first for me and sometimes still is when ppl act like they can do a better job at raising Thalia than I can. They used to treat me like I didn't know what I was doing but it has gotten better.
Thanks for reading!!
