4 Month Check-Up

We went to the Dr for Hudson's 4 month check up on Wednesday, and our little man is growing!  His stats are as follows

Weight: 12 lbs 14ounces.  I was actually kind of shocked by this, I thought he would weigh a lot more.  He is a little on the skinny side, but she said it is nothing to be worried about at all.

Height: 25.2 Inches.

Development:  She said developmentally he is doing great, according to the "test" they do for development he is off the charts with problem solving.  He is very curious about things, and wants to figure everything out.  I am not going to lie I was one proud mama hearing that.  I was worried about the fact that he has no interest in rolling over, he has rolled over a few times, but he is pretty content being on his back .  She said it is perfectly fine, he is just a little more laid back in that department.

After talking about his issues with eating/screaming she thought we should put him on meds for reflux.  Thank goodness for Zantac, because he is a completely different baby!  I wish we would have discovered this little miracle drug sooner, he not longer throws awful screaming fits after feedings, and he sleeps so much better.  He is still up several times to eat, but it is completely different than before.  He would want to nurse all night, and never seemed satisfied.  The past two nights he has went right to sleep when we put him in his bed, when he wakes up he nurses, and goes right back to sleep.  I think I have slept better in the past two nights than I have in four months......PRAISE THE LORD.  I felt like I was on the verge of a nuclear meltdown, so this relief could not have come at a better time.
