4 month pediatrician visit
The girls have reached four months old. They are no longer newborns. Of course they are still considered infants but they are so alert and curious and responsive infant just doesn’t seem like the right description for them. Really good babies sounds much better. They didn’t remember what happened the last time they went to the dr. so they were all smiles until the shots time came, I was a bit nervous for them, the needles were bigger this time, They screamed bloody murder for a few minutes but calmed quickly once we held and fed them. I stayed home from work to be with them and make sure they didn’t have any bad reactions. The were a little grumpy throughout the day but mostly they were just sleepy. We even got a few smiles out of them here and there. After their two month visit they were so upset that I called to ask if I could give them baby Tylenol and the nurse advised the dosage, this time I asked the dr about giving them the Tylenol and he said I should not. They think that the vaccinations do not work as well if combined with the Tylenol. He said that I did it once was no big deal but that I shouldn’t this time and he wasn’t thrilled that his nurse gave me the wrong information.
I’m sure you are wondering… What are the stats?!
Talia Rose Sack
weighed in at 12lbs4oz
measured 24 inches long
She is in the 10%-25% percentile for weight and 25%-50% for height. These numbers are for full term babies, so the doc was pleased that they were even on the chart.
Jordan Mia Sack
weighed in a 12lbs7oz
measured 23″ long
She is in the 10%-25% percentile for weight and the 5%-10% for height.
He also told us about SOLIDS! that we should start with rice cereal once a day for a week before they turn six months, then move to oatmeal once a day for a week and after that veggies, one new one every few days until their six month appointment. My husband is very excited about cooking for the girls, he has been talking about taking them to food markets around the world since the day we found out I was pregnant!
