June Weight Check

6/03/2014

So much has happened since our last weight check update. In no way does it feel like it has been only 4 weeks. Yesterday with high hopes we took Lilly in, on her ten month birthday (insert ugly crying face here) to see her progress. I mean the girl is GROWING, so we knew it just had to be a good weight check.

Her weight yesterday was 15 pounds and 8 ounces, just shy of the third percentile. This is major for our Little Bit, and the doctor was quite pleased about it. She not only has put on weight but she has finally put some length on as well. The Doctor was happy enough with her progress that he gave us the option of waiting until her regular twelve month well baby for her next appointment, or (if we wanted) have another weight check in a month. Austin felt more comfortable having her seen in another month (he is so cute when it comes to her), so we will be back in another four weeks.

While all this progress is amazing, a lot of nutrition changes have happened to get her here. After the last post regarding her weight we tried transitioning Lilly off the bottle and back onto the breast. I don't even think that lasted a couple days. Baby girl just gets so bored when eating. She would nurse for three minutes tops, and I knew I had no other options but formula. As some of you who have been following our journey know, giving up nursing has been quite the struggle for me. But at the end of the day, Lilly getting nutrition is the most important thing

So right now Lilly drinks bottles for her main form of nutrition. We have solids at breakfast, lunch, and dinner times. Then she nurses in the middle of the night, or if she needs comfort. It is the best case scenario, and at the end of the day, the most important thing is that Lilly is thriving.
