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

River had his 2 month well baby visit today... and his first round of shots..

His measurements are:

12 lbs 6 oz, 22 3/4 inches in length, and 16 1/4 inches head... it puts him in the 50th percentile across the board.. he is RIGHT where he should be for his age physically..

She did a few excersizes with him to see how strong he was.. she put him down on the table and he propped himself up with his hands and looked around and held his head perfectly straight and everything.. she was impressed at his strength and said he is doing things that a baby normally doesn't do until closer to 4 months.. GO LITTLE MAN!

We told her that the formula is helping but not alot.. she said she wants to keep him on it until he turns 3 months and if there still isn't much improvement he'll be put on something called Progesteril or something like that.. she said some babies are allergic to lactose (which would be given soy formula) some babies are allergic to the protein in milk (babies are given Nutrimagen) and then some are allergic to the fat which is that next one.

He was given 3 shots (one of which was 3 different vaccinations all together) He goes back at 4 months for his next round of shots
