12 Month Checkup

January 22nd, 2008 by Mommy

One Year Old

Emily is 12 months old and we made another trip to the pediatrician. At this visit she weighed in at 16 lbs 6 oz. and 29 inches long. We were very surprised at Emily’s weight loss over the last three months. The doctor was concerned and reweighed Emily twice. After discussing Emily’s eating habits, her activities and personality he decided not to do any testing and see what happens in the next month. His goal for Emily is to gain one pound in one month and if she doesn’t then we will have some testing done.

Emily has been a great eater, loves to play, and is very happy not to mention having grown one inch in the last three months. We will have to wait to see what happens at the next visit. I’m resisting the urge to feed Emily a lot of food high in fat to artificially increase her weight. My plan is just to feed Emily a consistent diet so that we don’t mask some other problem if there is one. Emily had three shots finishing out two shot sequences and starting a new one. These were as unpleasant as shots are normally for her. We will go back to the doctor for a weight check next month. Other than the weight issue her next visit will be at 15 months.
