Yesterday we took Jacob for his first doctor's appointment. He weighed in at 7lbs 7oz according to the nurse and 7lbs 5oz according to the doctor. I was with the nurse though so I believe the first one. That is only 0.7oz less than his birth weight so he is doing well there. He measured at 19 inches (18.5 at birth) We told them all our concerns about feeding. He chokes a lot when he eats because I am making too much milk. So I stopped breastfeeding. They want me to try breastfeeding again and see a lactation specialist. I have already seen one. We started again last night. It went well at first and then not well over night and is back to going well again today.
So the funniest thing happened at the doctors. She was examining him and took off his diaper. She spread his cheeks apart and he farted right in her face. I seriously could not stop laughing. I felt horrible for laughing but I couldn't stop! I had to turn away. OMG. Hilarious! Luckily for her he didn't do one of his projectile poopings. He does that often.
We also told them about our concerns with his breathing. He sometimes wheezes/grunts. They gave us a few things to watch for. We go back next week for a follow up.
Today Jacob is a week old. I can't even believe it!
