This past week has been interesting to say the least. Kaili started out the week with stomach problems again. Since I stopped the dairy her stomach seemed to be better so we went back to giving her the lactose free powdered formula, it’s just so much cheaper than the ready-made formula. After 3 days of one very unhappy baby I went out and bought more ready-made stuff to see if it made a difference… since then she has been a different child, a happy one! Everyone we talk to, including her pediatrician say that it shouldn’t matter if it’s powdered or ready-made, it’s all the same. I just don’t buy it!
Today we saw the pediatrician for her 2 month shots and physical. She now weighs 9 lbs. 2 oz. and is 22 inches long. She is still on the smaller size, however her brain has grown twice as much as “her friends” over the past 6 weeks. Long story short she is doing great! She is moving her hand just fine and it doesn’t seem to be bothering her at all. Dr. wants to make sure the nerves are OK so he suggests pinching her…hard… when she is calm. I think that is just cruel, ugh!
At the end of the appointment it was time for her shots. She ended up getting 3 injections and one oral mediation for Rotavirus. I decided to step out of the room for these, I just couldn’t see her in pain. However she was a champ and yes there were tears but they stopped when it was over. She has been a bit fussy and tired today but that was expected. She is now sleeping soundly and hopefully we will have another great night of sleep!
