Checked out good!

This past Friday, I took Brayden for his 4 month appointment with Dr. W! We have the "official" okay to start solids. He weighed 14 pounds 15 ounces, and was 25.5 inches! He got his shots out of the way, and his fever we've been dealing with is officially gone. HOWEVER, the MOST important thing that happened...
Dr. W thinks Braydens protein allergy is under control, and his reflux meds are working as of yesterday, we are weaning him OFF of Nutramigen! Mommy is SO excited about this! Going to buy soy formula was much cheaper and will last him a lot longer than what he has been on! It will take about 2 weeks to get the switch to soy, and then we can start fruits and veggies. We are having to wait because if he is on solids and has a reaction, we won't know where it came from.
At 4 months Brayden is:
  • smiling and cooing at every girl that walks by!
  • talks to himself in the mornings-but how fun to wake up to!
  • sleeping from 8-7
  • loving to play in the bath!
  • wearing 3-6 and some 6 month clothes
  • sitting in the highchair
  • standing as long as mommy can hold him!
  • sitting up in the stroller-out of the carrier! He loves to look around!
  • on rice cereal twice a day
  • stretching out his feedings more
  • rolling back to front-still working on tummy to back but getting there!
  • holding his head up
  • grabbing and reaching for things
We made our 6 month appointment and signed up for flu shots. So see you next time Dr. W!!!
