4 Month Check Up
Over the weekend, my son had his 4 month appointment. This was a big accomplishment...we all survived the first 4 months with a newborn! Thank God! These first 4 months were challenging, exciting, intense, and most of all AWESOME! I can not put into words how life changing having a baby is! On to the details of the appointment...
Our Son is perfectly healthy, hitting all of the milestones for his age! The only thing that this neurotic mama worries about is his weight! Our son was small when he was born (if you wanna hear about it, check out my Birth Story) and really hasn't caught up to the normal...here are his stats!
Height = 25 percentile (stayed same)
Weight = 5 percentile (dropped from the 10th)
Head Circumference = 10 percentile (stayed same)
Everyone tells me not to worry about it, including my husband, but I can't help it, I am the mama! Isn't this my job?
I can't help but think maybe it's me (because I am breastfeeding), but at the same time, some babies are just small, and then all the sudden they just have a huge growth spurt!! Guess I will just try to leave it in God's hands!!
What is your experience with your check up's for your babies?
Were your babies above average, below average, average? How did this change over time?
