Today Carson had his two week well baby check up! I’m proud to say he got an A+ (I expect nothing less out of the little guy- haha!). But really, he did great and he is healthy and definitely growing- fast! Pretty soon his newborn clothes won’t fit him :( We already are trying to put him in size 1 diapers rather than newborn diapers because he leaks through all his diapers (and leaves us with pee spots on our clothes when we hold him!) and Ryan read that putting him in bigger diapers might help. Before we know it this little guy will be a month old- yikes!
Here are his current measurements:
Weight: 7 lbs (25th percentile)…he has surpassed his birth weight almost by a pound!!!
Length: 20 in (50th percentile)…grew an inch since birth!
Head size: 13.5 in (20th percentile)
I’ve never understood the whole percentile thing…maybe i’ll go google it*. Being a mama has made me quite the googler. My favorite google search i’ve done- “can a baby pee too much?” :) :) :)
*Googled it! Still kind of confused, but apparently it means that if Carson is at the 25th percentile for his weight, 25% of babies his age weigh the same or less than him and 75% of babies his age weigh more than him. So, Carson is on his way to being just like his daddy!
Carson visited the doctor for his first baby checkup today and he did so well! He is great in the car and only cried a little bit while being checked by the nurse and doctor. His birth weight was 6 lbs 2.4 oz and after losing some weight at the hospital, he is almost back to his birth weight (he’s now at 6 lbs 1 oz). Everything looked great!!! So glad we have a happy and healthy baby!
