It Sure Feels Good to be Average

Today was BGT's 1 month check up and to sum it up with one word, WOW. When she was born she weighed in at 7 pounds, 8 ounces. By the first night she lost a few ounces but by the following day she was down to 6 pounds, 13 ounces. We had to supplement with a little formula while we were in the hospital and all she gained was ONE OUNCE. One teeny tiny ounce!! The nurses seemed pleased that she was gaining weight not losing it, so we left the hospital happy. Three days later when we went in to see the pediatrician, another small victory! We were no longer supplementing formula and two more ounces were gained bringing her up to 7 pounds flat.

Over the past couple of weeks BGT has been dealing with a pretty bad case of reflux. She is always hungry but spits up constantly (Even her reflux medicine) and has trouble keeping her milk down.  So long story short we were worried about her weight gain. Well folks, no need to worry any more!! Our munchkin is... wait for it... NINE POUNDS AND THIRTEEN OUNCES- 60th percentile in weight!! She hasn't grown any lengthwise so is still 50th percentile.

 All I have to say is IT SURE FEELS GOOD TO BE AVERAGE!!!
