Pediatrician Follow-up

Getting all weighed in! 11 lbs. 12. oz.

Just checking to make sure that grandma was still standing there!

Four months, 3 weeks:
Weight: 11 lbs. 12 oz. (5th percentile)
Length: 25 inches (50th percentile)
Head circumference: 15 3/4 inches (5th percentile)

Today was Madison's follow-up appointment at the pediatrician's. Because she was not gaining weight fast enough we were to return to this appointment to check up on her weight gain over a period of two weeks. She weighed 11lbs. 12 oz. - up 6 oz. from her visit two weeks ago. Still in the 5th percentile, we are to continue supplementing with formula and begin feeding her rice cereal mixed with breast milk or formula as many as 3-6 times a day. The pediatrician also recommended that we start giving her other solids (ie pureed fruits and vegetables) to help to increase her caloric intake.

Maddie continues to be a VERY active and happy little baby girl. I think she is just burning off so many of the calories she takes in with all of her activity. She's just going to be a petite little girl!
