Happy Friday!

Pediatrician appointment on Wednesday went well. This was a weight check and a follow up from her appointment last week. Current weight is now 6 pounds, 7.8 ounces!

We were cleared to go to every 4 hours overnight for her feedings. She was eating every 3, and that extra hour has made a big difference for Mr Minion and I in terms of sleep. She’s sleeping better now too, and is more awake during the day.

We give her tummy time every day and she’s being very impressive. She can lift her head, hold her head up (for the most part), and kicks herself around the mat. The pediatrician was very impressed with her range of head motion and her neck strength. She is a week old  adjusted, and doing things closer to her chronological age.

We got actual reflux medication for her. It seems to be helping with her congestion and cough. She’s also eating a little better, too. We offer her 70 mls now, and she has finished almost all of it for her feedings today.

On deck for this weekend: going to try taking her for a walk outside. I realized after the pediatrician office visit that I hadn’t physically left the house for a week. I’m more of an indoor girl though. 🙂

First Trip Out

We went to the pediatrician this morning for her nicu follow up. She is 18 1/2 inches long, and 6 pounds, 0.4 ounces!

We got her first batch of shots today, which she handled like the super baby she is. She goes back in a week for another weight check.
