Fantastic at 4 Months
So we had to postpone Reese's 4 month well-baby check-up as he was in the ER the day before his originally scheduled appt and the docs said we had to wait until he was all better to get shots (which he'd be getting at 4 month appt). We just recently got in for that check-up and he's doing FABULOUS at 4 MONTHS!
He was sitting up for the doc and was all smiles for her....well, until shot time of course. We discussed his still not sleeping through the night (instead he's up several times throughout the night...sometimes every 1.5 hours which makes for LONG nights for Mommy) and doc noted that typically the magic number for sleeping through the night is 13 lbs. Well, we obviously don't give a rat's behind about magic numbers as Reese is 15 lbs 1 oz and is no where close to sleeping through the night. She recommended that we introduce solid food to him on a regular basis adding veggies and fruits to the mix. Fill that belly good and hopefully he'll start sleeping more at night. Here's crossing our fingers.....
