First off, thank you to everyone who commented and emailed me about yesterdays post. Your support never ceases to amaze me.
We had the dreaded 2 month vaccination appointment yesterday and all in all, things went pretty well.
Emily was all smiles and coos at the Dr which I loved to see. She weighs 13 lbs 1 oz (93rd percenile) is 24.3 inches long (96th percentile) and her head circumference is 39.5cm (80th percentile) I guess I shouldn't have been all that worried about her not getting enough food, right?
The Dr believes her reflux isn't being treated properly with the medicine she is currently on (prevacid) so he is switching her to zantac. We will start that in a couple of days. He thinks this is why she has trouble breathing out of her nose and is fussy after feedings.
He mentioned her crooked neck and told us to start working on it at home with lots of tummy time and manually stretching her neck to the other side. Apparently a helmet could be needed if this isn't corrected because her head will start to flatten on the side she is always laying on. He said a physical therapist might be a good idea.
Then came the shots....terrible. She was so happy until that first needle went in- her face went from smiley to shock, anger and pain in about 2 seconds. She screamed bloody murder until I was able to pick her up and hold her. She finally calmed down and was so worked up that she just went right to sleep in my arms.
Poor baby girl.
