No pictures right now although I've got a cute one of Baba and the kids this morning. No time to get it up yet...
Zavier had his hearing test this afternoon. He passed of course. We didn't really have any doubts he would lol. It was really interesting to see how it was done since I missed getting to see Kalila's. He nursed through the whole thing so it was really easy to get him to do what he needed. He even helped with taking the stuff off when they were done lol. What was funny, or at least I thought so, was one of the questions I got asked. Now I know they have too... but not even a couple minutes after me explaining we'd had an out of hospital birth I was asked if it was vaginal or c-section. Mental picture of a home c-section. But yeah the whole thing went well and we even ran into our eye dr there... He'd just had a baby apparently.
Then we went straight to the pedi's office for Zavier's one month checkup. Mixup with insurance (another not so good part, although not what I was referring to in the title) meant an extra long wait time... but they were nice about it and we got in as soon as possible... Poor Baba has to deal with getting everything straightened out when he goes in later though. Other than that everything there, w/ Zavier, went great too.
He weighs 12 lbs 7oz and is 24 in long. Kind of surprised me because I weighed him last weekend at 14 lbs. I know the diaper was part of that difference since I weighed him with one that time and they do it without, but still... maybe the diff between just having filled a diaper lol. We did change one right before.
We discussed his spitting up and gas. She's not worried because he's gaining well and all that.
Talked about what he's doing, which is all on track...
Went over the vax schedule... which was a big one. I was a little nervous about that, but it went well. He starts in on those next month. She did adjust it a bit, swapped out one from 3 months to 2 and vice versa. I'm fine with that, not so much that I wanted them in a particular order as just not having so much thrown at him at once. When we get to MMR, those will have to be adjusted too because our schedule has them separated out and noone here has the individual vaccines. Apparently she used to send her patients elsewhere for those if they wanted to do that, but that place is out too. Crossing fingers maybe they'll get them in, but doubting it because I've seen comments online about it being a problem.
Checked his ears, throat, chest all that... everything looks good.
So yeah Zavier's visit went well...
But we brought up Kalila and the diarrhea problem. This is where the not so good comes in. She asked about juice and fruit intake.. Kalila does eat fruit, but not enough of it to be an issue and usually the ones that are supposed to do the opposite... but they don't. Then she asked if she was still nursing, nope... and about milk/dairy. Said that might be the problem and is having us completely cut it out of her diet for the next couple weeks or so. I've seen online that it can take up to a month to completely get it out of your system so we may do that just to be safe. So yeah.. not so good. I'm not surprised because I've heard of it causing problems like this. I even saw it mentioned for the spit up/gas issues. I knew we might have to go there. I just don't like it lol. Cutting dairy out is hard. But if it helps... at least we'll know right?
