6 weeks

Monday Lily and I had our 6 week check ups. Lily was 9 lbs 1.5 oz and 20 1/2 inches! She is healthy and growing. I don't remember if I've mentioned before that she has some reflux and occasionally vomits. I did talk to our doctor about it and he said as long as she is growing and gaining weight it is not a concern. He doesn't like to put babies on medication as there can be some bad side effects. He told me to keep her inclined after feedings and make sure she gets burped well, which I've been doing anyway. I'm also trying to be more strict with what I eat to see if that makes a difference for her. It seems like anything tomatoey, or too much dairy, or caffeine bother her tummy, so no more pizza, cheese, milk, ice cream, chocolate, coffee, coke, etc...for me. Hopefully she will outgrow it by 6 months. I just got to thinking that all the things that gave me heartburn during pregnancy are the same things that seem to bother her tummy...

So, I am one pound shy of my pre-pregnancy weight, so that made me feel great! My blood pressure was actually low for me, but I guess that's good.

Now I am going to compare the other kid's 6 week stats

Sean ~ 9 lbs 15 oz and 23 in

Eleanor ~ 9 lbs 14.5 oz and 23 in

Chloe ~ 10 lbs 1.5 oz and 22 in

Lilyana ~ 9 lbs 1.5 oz and 20 1/2 in

Sean and Ellie were almost exactly the same size and weight at 6 weeks. Chloe was our chunky-monkey, and Lily is petite and sweet!
