7 mo bear pics
The girls had their pediatrician appointments on Thursday and thanks to daddy and our nurse everything went okay without mommy. I did ask alot of questions and made a few calls during their appointment. Jordan weighed in at 13 lb 7 oz and was 24 inches long. The doctor was surprised that she is gaining weight because she is only eating four more ounces a day than when she came home. She is now 24 inches and he was very pleased with her growth. He wanted us to start her on cereal and some other baby foods. I called Tiny K to see what their thoughts were on this and they want us to wait until she is at least 4 1/2 months adjusted or we might even wait until she is 6 months adjusted. Preemies have alot of problems with food allergies so we need to be careful before we introduce these foods. Our little Miss Rylee was called a fatty and he doesn't want us to increase her feedings for a month. She is growing a little too much. We need her to grow length wise so she doesn't fill out too much. This is kinda crazy to hear that our 1 lb 12 oz baby is growing too fast. She weighed in at 12 lb 14 oz and was 23 inches long. She is still projectile vomiting a few times a day and it has me pretty worried. We are trying to run her feedings over an hour to see if it will help and so far it isn't helping any. She is still not really wanting her bottles, but will at least put the nipple in her mouth. Tiny K will be here on Tuesday so maybe they will have some ideas to get her more interested. I think she gets frustrated with the thickner in her bottles and just doesn't want to work at it.
