I had to take Ryan to the doctor today for a weight check. I took him for his 6m appointment on Friday, he was 12lbs 8oz. He had only had a 4 oz weight gain in the past 2 months. So- the instructions were to bottle feed him (breast milk) after each feeding, and to feed him cereal and solie for breakfast and dinner. Well- I couldn't get him to eat both cereal and a solid for breakfast. So breakfast it was cereal. Dinner was cereal and either carrots (Friday) or pears (Sat + Sun.) I think he likes carrots more than pears. Anyways, I took him into the doctor this morning, and he was 12lbs 14oz. He had gained 6oz in 3 days. His pediatrician wants him to be about 15lbs. We're getting there. They think he is little. I think he is perfect :)
I'm working with Ryan on a daytime schedule since I have the next 2 weeks off. So far- it's pretty consistent. He wakes up about 9:00- diaper change, nurse, bottle, cereal. Get dressed about 9:45. Play a little & Christmas shop with Mommy. 11:45- nurse. 12:00- naptime. He sleeps 1-2 hours. 2:00ish -Wake up. Nurse & bottle. Play play play play play play snuggle. 6:00-nurse, cereal, eat some pears. 6:30- bath time, lotion, jammies. Play a little more. 7:30- nurse and fall asleep. 7:45- crib!
