Sierra’s 2 week well-check

Filed under: baby's progress,doctor — by Lauren on December 22nd, 2008 @ 3:25 pm

Sierra had her appointment at the pediatrician this morning. She weighed 8 lbs, 11.5 oz and measured 21 1/2 inches long. Those were Anya’s stats at birth 🙂 She only gained 4.5 oz in 9 days, but the doctor said he isn’t worried about that yet. According to the nurse’s measurement, Sierra grew 2 1/2 inches in 2 weeks, which isn’t likely. The nurse said the hospitals never measure accurately. Clearly someone somewhere made a mistake!

The doctor treated Sierra’s belly button with silver nitrate because it’s still bleeding slightly and scabby in the place where the cord had been. Other than that and a good case of baby acne on her forehead and around her nose, she’s doing fabulously! She will start taking vitamin D drops soon. We go back for another well visit in 2 weeks.
