Tales from my life as a mom of 2 sons and 2 daughters

This kid is going to give me gray hair before he's one I swear it....

River broke out in some kind of rash today.. I noticed it this afternoon.. it was all over his arms and his upper back and neck... called the pedi and they said bring him in. Off to the ped we go.

Doctor doesn't know what's causing the rash... said to go home and wash everything really thoroughly and see if that helps. Keep the appointment for 2 days from now (his 2 week check up) and we'll go from there.

He did a mini exam.. which of course woke River up who was HUNGRY and screamed the entire time.. so the doctor made us hold his hands down and his head down which pissed him off even more.. he said that River's screaming (a new development) might be the beginning of Colic since it happens at the same time every night and nothing helps.. said that his belly is nice and soft which is a good thing when you have a crying baby. Checked his nose, ears, and eyes... all of which are clear and good.

They weighed him but didn't take any other measurements but that will be done on Friday with his well baby check up. But....

At discharge on Thursday 2/16 he was 7 lbs 8 oz
As of today 2/22 he was 8 lbs even. WOO HOOO Half a lb gain in 6 days.. YAY!!!

He is still having latching problems but after a few minutes we get it figured out and he nurses well which is all I care about.

Will update again on Friday with all the stats :)
