Today we had Baby A's two week appointment with the pediatrician. Yes, it has been that long since I have written a blog post, and I do apologize. Things have been busy with family here, but now things are settling back down, so I thought I would begin updating the blog on everything that is going on or has gone on.
Today at the appointment, Baby A weighed in at 6lbs 15oz. She gained her birth weight back plus another ounce. She measured 19 and 3/4 inches long, which means she grew about 3/4inch since her birthday. Breastfeeding is going great. In the hospital she latched on like a pro and I knew we would have no worries with nipple confusing, so we immediately introduced her to pacifiers as a way to soothe her while my boobs got some breaks in between feedings. I definitely do not regret it at all! It has worked for us. I also started pumping, but I am not too consistent with the amount that I get from pumping, which she is in the middle of a growth spurt so that may be why. Soon we will introduce her to a bottle because I will have to do some things for school. School went great while I was in the hospital. Baby A could not have picked a better time to make her arrival because I never once missed an assignment. I passed the class with a 98/A and already on to another class.
So far, that is what I have to share with you all. Here's a picture of today's doctor's appointment.
