2 Month Well Check

Yesterday I took Tanner to meet Dr. Scott and have his 2 month well check. This was not his first visit obviously but he saw a different Dr. last time! Tanner is very healthy and growing very fast! He is 13 lbs and 6 ounces (90th percentile) and 23 1/2 inches long (75th percentile). It's strange to have a baby on the complete opposite end of the spectrum as Izabel! He has a little reflux and Dr. Scott recommended we elevate the end of his crib and give him a little less at each feeding to try and get him to stop spitting up! He said the average 2 month old is sleeping about 6 hours at night which we are still a little shy of but I'm hopeful that will start happening soon! We talked about giving him a vitamin to help him get a few extra nutrients that he doesn't get from breast milk and that was about it. Then the nurse came in a gave him an oral vaccine and three shots! Tanner didn't mind the oral part but he got pretty mad about the shots. He got red all over and screamed but as soon as I picked him up he was fine. He doesn't go back until he is 4 months and hopefully by then he will be moving around more and sleeping through the night! All in all he is very healthy and happy and we couldn't ask for anything more!
