4 month well child

Daughter had her 4 month check yesterday.  I can't believe she's growing so fast!

She got three shots.  She had already been very fussy all day, so I really wasn't looking forward to it.  Luckily, our clinic really encourages nursing right after shots so they left the room to let me calm her down with a bit-o-boob.  Once she was calmed, I took this pic...
She's short... only 16% for height (23.5 in) but 45 % (13lb 13 oz) for weight.  Her head is 72%!  She must have a really big brain!

I asked about the percentages for a breastfed baby, and the Dr said there were only charts for premies or term babies.  I had heard a lot about the breastfed charts, so I just looked it up.

According to that, Daughter is over 50 % for weight :)

  1. Beautiful, healthy girl! Look up the American Pediatric (AAP) charts and then compare the World Health Organization (WHO) chart. Even the AAP recommends using the WHO chart for 0-2years over their own chart! Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
