He had his 4 month check up yesterday. Here are the numbers:
Weight: 11 lbs 5.5 oz
Length: 23.5 in
Head circumference: 40 cm
We knew that Dallin would be weighing pretty low at this appointment. His cousin Lucas is 2 months younger and 2 lbs heavier. He's gained 1/2 a pound in the past 2 months. The doctor wasn't super worried about it though. Now that he's getting more active, it's typical for babies to be using more of their calories and storing less of them. It's just something we need to be aware of. Before I would generally let Dallin set his feeding schedule, but now I'm trying more to make sure he has more frequent feedings to try to give him more calories. Other than his weight, he amazed the doctor at how well he is progressing and developing. We have a pretty amazing little boy and I'm excited to see the ways he'll continue to amaze us.
