4 month pediatrician visit

Filed under: Doctor Visits — Mara @ 9:54 pm

Today I went to the pediatrician for my 4 month appointment. I now weigh 12lbs 5.5oz and have reached a height of 23¼ inches. My head circumference is 39¾ centimeters.
They also had to stick me again not once but four times. I remember these same shots from my 2 month visit.
Since week 15 of life mom & dad have introduced Similac Advance formula to my diet. Mom’s milk supply was diminishing so that week I had some of both breast milk and formula but since then I’ve been strictly eating my formula.
I eat five bottles a day around three hours apart and between 6-7 ounces each time.
It has been going well though because I haven’t had any problems so far. I’m pooping more and mom & dad call my heavy pee pee diapers pee pee bricks because I go so much more now.
Dr. Lowe, my pediatrician, says I can now start eating 3-4 tablespoons of plain dry baby cereal mixed with formula 1-2 times a day. This should be fun for mom & dad since I push spit out of my mouth consistently throughout the day. I’m a very slobbery baby! Mom’s planning on going out tomorrow to purchase my new food so I can have some tomorrow. Knowing these two they will document it on film like they do everything else. It’s like the paparazzi live here with me!
