Sam's 6 Month Stats

Sam had his 6 month check up today. He was over 27 inches long and 18 pounds 7 oz.

That puts him at the 75% for height and 60% for weight! YAY! It took Gavin until his 24 month check up to get to those stats.

We are going to try a new reflux med (prevacid). Reflux is still our wicked foe. Last night was a horrible night, he cried and cried and puked all over. Hopefully this works.

Learned something new today - not sure if I forgot, it's new information, or I just didn't pay attention with Gavin (keeping in mind he was only 12 pounds at 6 months, so not eating nearly as much as Sam anyway). Babies at 6 months should only be drinking 24 - 32 oz of milk/formula per day (assuming that they are on track growth wise of course). Sam gets near 40 oz some day! Of course, depending on the day, he may puke several of those ounces back at us.

Anyway, this means I definitely have a reason to cut out those 1, sometimes 2, nighttime feedings. The Dr said I could give him water if he needs to suck on something (b/c he sure won't take a pacifier). We'll start that tonight. It should go over well.
