Last Monday Caroline had her first appointment with the pediatrician. We actually forgot to go to our original appointment scheduled on Friday (I’m blaming it on “new baby brain.” Sure, that’s a thing.) so she had a little extra time to grow.
Caroline did not love her appointment at all, which meant that I had to nurse her there, and as a result, I learned that I wasn’t always positioning her right for feeding at her age. I made a simple change and I think she has been filling up a little better.
Not that it had been much of a problem — she was up to 9 pounds, 1 ounce at eleven days old! That’s fourteen ounces since we left the hospital the Saturday before. (The doctor, however, said it wasn’t a “fabulous” weight gain, but she was okay with it. Whatever lady!) So far Caroline is close to the 90th percentile for weight and 97th for height.
When the doctor saw how long she is she said, “You have a very tall baby, but you’re both tall right?”
Yes, I am a very tall 5’3″. 🙂
Chris is 6 feet, so average/tall? Charlotte is still tall for her age, but we’ll see how all these numbers play out in later years. (Not like it even really matters anyway!)
She is healthy, and we are happy!
