Day 40: One month check up!

Kensie had her one month check up today! She’s grown 2 1/2 inches and gained 2lb and 5oz from her birth weight! She measured 22in long and 10lb 5oz. 

She was not a fan of having to get naked and waiting on the doctor. 

My little cry baby

The doctor asked me how she is doing with tummy time and I think maybe she didn’t believe me when I said she can push herself all the way up! She put her on her belly, and sure enough K did it. Doc said she is super strong and that is a 2 month skill! Woohoo!! (Also, uh oh for me…this nugget is going to be running before I know it.)
She got a shot which she was NOT a fan of. She had the saddest little cry but she cheered up pretty quickly once she got her sparkly band-aid and got to put her clothes back on! 


I told the doctor about how bad Kensie cries from having gas bubbles after she eats. I’ve started giving her Little Remedies Gas Drops which helps a bit but I still feel so bad that her tummy hurts so often. I’ve even tried to take out dairy and different foods and nothing seems to help much. 

The doctor explained that her metabolism isn’t developed which is a huge contributing factor to colic in babies under 4 months. She told me to get Gerber Soothe which is a probiotic to help with her getting good bacterias and hopefully relive some of her discomfort. Hopefully it works!

    Rachel was a screamer from the gas and tummy pain for the first 4-6 weeks of her life. She was starving and we tried everything. She ended up on soy milk and became a happy baby! Kensington will be fine I am sure. She is beautiful and has the best parents! Can’t wait to meet her!
