One Month Pediatrician Visit

Yesterday Gavrel went back to the pediatrician for his one-month checkup:

  • He is now 21 3/4 inches (up an inch and a quarter from birth) - 50th percentile.
  • He weighs 11 pounds, even (up more than three pounds!) - 90th percentile! No wonder mom has lost so much weight...
  • His head is 15 1/2 inches around (up one full inch from birth).
After discussing his extreme fussiness with the doctor, she thinks it might be reflux. She prescribed some Zantac and shorter nursing sessions, and we'll see in the next week or so if it's helping him settle down and sleep any better.

Otherwise, she said he was absolutely perfect and everything checked out!


sounds good Katie, clearly you are doing a great job taking care of Gavrel. much love.
