Liam 7 week visit

OMG I can't believe it has been 7 weeks! So at the 2 week visit (which was really at 3 weeks) he weighed 7 lbs 10 oz which was a 2 lb weight gain from his birth weight .. I was speculating he was going to gain about 2 lbs so we would be at about 9 lbs 10 oz yesterday.. Well Mr. Chunkster came in at a whooping 11 lb 1 oz .. That is almost a daily 2 oz gain. What a Chunkster!!!

Anyway so because we were at 7 weeks the doc said we could get out first set of shots which we did.. 2 needles and he only screamed for 30 seconds .. Poor baby that is until we got home.. Then he wailed for a good 20 minutes that is when I broke and gave him 1.25 ml of Tylenol. After that he slept for a while.. Poor baby had a long day.. Today we have a 4 hr drive to Binghamton for my nephews first birthday party.. I am bringing everything .. Including all of his meds .. Wish us luck guys!

Oh PS the doc changed his zantac script from 1.5 ml twice a day to 0.5 ml thrice a day .. He halved the dosage but said the increased frequency will help out more. He thought the initial dose was too high since he didn't prescribe it, it was his colleague on call.. We shall see.. And also I could give him 1/2 teaspoon of oatmeal cereal with his bottles.. Since I am strictly breastfeeding for now I am giving it to him with his Zantac since he hates the taste of it and I have to mix it with 2 oz of breast milk in a bottle so he can take the medication ..

He is Amanda ! At least I am doing something right! He is 8 oz away from doubling his birth weight .. But he was 4 weeks early so he is pretty much playing catch up.. He went from the 12 th percentile to the 46th

Hey .. The Zantac is helping but today we had to change the dose again because I felt as if he was having symptoms again.. So I paged the doctor and got the dose increased now to 0.7ml three times a day ..

I also am putting the oatmeal cereal in the bottle and I feel like it helps.. Even though he only had the bottle when he has the medication because I am breast feeding .. He is so much more alert now .. Staring at things .. So cute
