PB's 2 Month Stats

Today was PB's 2 month well baby check up! We have really been looking forward to it so that we could get his new stats! Here are the highlights:
  • Weight 16lbs 12 ounces
  • Height 24"
  • Head 16.54 inches
  • Doc checked over the nasty cradle cap and said its OK. Just put some Vaseline on it and rub!
  • He said he has a mis-shapen head from looking always to his right. I am sure it is no coincidence that his favorite hang out ( the swing) is on the corner and I am always to  the right of him when he swings. We are to encourage him to look to the left so his head can pop back out.(so to speak)
  • I need to get some Vitamin D drops for him, which apparently is like a vitamin for breast fed babies
  • We are to practice putting him in his crib while still awake so that he can teach himself to fall asleep on his own. Apparently after 4 months is when babies can form habits so I gotta get him out of his swing before then!
  • peebs got a few shots today too. He didn't really mind them. Doc says fat babies aren't as bothered by them. He has been a fuss pot all afternoon though and I anticipate a night of sleeping on my chest.
I always sort of thought of the Pediatrician as like a doctor you go see when the baby is sick, but I think modern pedi's do a lot more than medicine and teach you about raising the baby too. We always get a neat handout of growth charts and what to expect and be doing in the coming weeks. I have already said how much we love our doc! He's a good dude! He gets a kick out of my sumo baby!

From my awesome "Total Baby" iphone app, you can enter in all doctor information, shots, growth etc. It makes these neat charts:
So you can see below according to the CDC Peebs is  over 97 percentile for weight, 80th percentile for height and 89th percentile for head size!

Put up your dukes!

I find it absolutely hilarious how much you love to call your baby fat (in many different varieties of words)!
