4 Month Appointment

Last Wednesday, miss Abigail had her 4 month pediatrician appointment. Here are her stats:

Length: 25.5" (she grew 3.5" in two months!)

Weight: 13.6 lbs.

Head circumference: 40.5"

According to her pedi, we have one great looking baby girl. She is hitting all of her milestones thus far and he was happy with her measurements. Apparantly, we have a very long, skinny baby. She was in the 95th percentile for length and the 38th percentile for weight. I have no idea who she takes after in this regard!

I also talked to her pedi about the amount of formula that she was spitting up each day. He didn't seem too concerned about the volume (which, let me tell you, is A LOT) since she never seems to feel any sort of discomfort while it's happening. Rather, he suggested that we start her on rice cereal in her bottle to see if it helps. While it has definitely lessened the amount she spits up on a daily basis, it seems to upset her belly slightly. She's much more fussy than she had been previously. Then again, this could be due to teething and entirely unrelated to the cereal. I guess time will tell.



Did you start off with a whole grain? That might be what's upsetting her stomach. If so, you want to introduce her to a single grain cereal first because her stomach can't handle a whole grain as well, not until it gets used to the single grain. Just an idea.
