Tessa had her 2 month pedi appt. today. She's now 23 inches long and weighs 8 lb. 14.5 oz. She's a tiny baby. Her weight is at 3% and her height at 56%. But the doc said Tessa is doing fine; she's reached her milestones and has gained appropriately since her last appt. (she was 6 lb. 9 oz. then). The doc did not mention supplementing with formula, which made me happy (she is 100% breastfed)! I was afraid since Tessa was so petite, they might suggest it, but apparently her gain is good, she's just on the small side. I'm pretty small and DH has always been tall & thin (up until a few years ago, super thin, he maybe weighed 160 lb. and is 6'4") but now he's closer to 200 lb. (more what he should weigh).
Tessa got her vaccinations (3 shots & 1 oral) at her appt. and she was MAD. Once she realized she was being stuck, her face turned beet red. I've never seen her so red and mad and she screamed and screamed. After the immunizations, I finally pulled out the boob and breast fed her a bit in the office to get her to calm down. The booby worked like a charm .
Now she is a bit fussy. I gave her infants Tylenol before the appt. (it was recommended) and some again 4 hours later per the nurses instructions, but I can tell she is warmish and not feeling well at all this afternoon. It's DH's birthday too, lucky him!
I have to go...Tessa is fussing! Hopefully, I can catch up on personals once we recover from the vaccinations.
Wow! She is a little one. Brina is 3 weeks old and weighs more than her. That's okay though. It sounds like she's doing wonderfully. I'm about to try to get back to breastfeeding her 100% of the time. That's great that you've been able to do so.
