4 Month Check-up

We took Baby to Children's Hospital last week to see how he is doing with his Laryngomalacia (see past post on this). Thankfully they did not need to do a scope this time as one look at Baby and they knew that he was thriving and not struggling with his breathing as that would cause him to burn more calories and not have all of the rolls he does. Unfortunately he does need to continue on the Zantac until he outgrows this which most likely won't be until around 18 months. He is a very noisy baby both when he breathes and when he nurses. If we continue on the Zantac and up the dosage with his weight gain we should see an improvement. I am so used to the noise that I don't realize it until I am nursing him somewhere and people start looking around to see what it is. Once in awhile one of our children will think they hear a dog barking outside and go around looking for it only to find me feeding Baby. Anyway, we are thankful that Baby is growing and thriving as he should be despite this impediment. He is one happy and rolly polly baby that we all adore.

Baby Boy at 4 months all rolly polly (sorry I cut off his feet!)
He is 18# so has already more than doubled his birth weight of (8#2oz)

I LOVE chubby babies (too bad mine haven't really been chubby). They are so fun to take naked (almost) pictures of! So Cute! Glad to hear that Baby is doing better.

If he's really 18 pounds at 4 months, he's already passed up my 7 month old!! My little dude just reached 16 pounds 10 ounces at his check up on Monday! Well, glad to hear he's thriving and doing well and I hope the Zantac works to keep him happy.

What rolls! Glad he is doing well, despite the interesting noises he makes.
