4 Months

Took EM for his 4 month checkup yesterday and he is doing good, except his head is crooked (plagiocephaly), too much time on his back and not enough on his tummy. The good news is he doesn't have to have a helmut (as long as it doesn't get worse). Doc said we could let him sleep on his tummy, that would help.

At every well check up the doctor gives us reading material. I don't know about you but my kids have never been at the place the paper says most (insert age) mo/yr olds are at.

For example:

"Most babies now take about 6 oz. every 4 to 5 hours." Please, try every three hours, rarely more and only if he is sleeping.

"Most babies are sleeping through the night by 4 months of age and will also nap 4 to 6 hours during the daytime." Ah, right, if only. I'm still waiting for HT to stay in bed all night, every night.

Speaking of HT, he got a flu shot yesterday and we are paying for it today, he is on his third pair of pajamas, the bedding is in the wash, and we are scrubbing the carpet. He was up twice last night saying that his belly hurt. My sweet poor baby. We may all stay in our pajamas today.

Ugh. Shot time is never any fun. Hope your day got better.
