First it started with green poop. His poop went from mustard yellow to green over night and has been since. I thought this was unusual for him. Then I heard things like it could be the Rotavirus. So I called the Dr. They assured me green poop was normal for a breast fed baby.
The next day Bryce wakes up with his eyes all full of goop. I didn't think anything of it, just cleaned it out and sent him to school. They said they were constantly cleaning out his eyes all day. So I call the Dr. We brought him in and turns out he had an infection of the tear duct. Completely normal for babies. We got this lovely tube of ointment to squirt IN his lower eye lid. That was NIGHTMARE. I dont think any of it ever made in into his eye, just sat on his eye lids. On the bright side, I got to stay home with him for a day since it is contagious.
|My skinny 2 month old!|
Today we went in for our 2 month check up and get his shots. He is 23 1/2 inches long and weighs 10lbs 10oz. He is in the 75 percentile for height and the 25 percentile for weight. I've been really worried over how skinny he is. I mean, I can see his ribs. When was the last time you saw a baby that you could see their ribs? I see other babies that are his same age and they have rolls of fat on them. The Dr. said she thought he was a "little thin". She said we should start supplementing 1 oz of formula and mix it with my breast milk. Then it was time to get his shots... I was traumatized! I held his little hands while they stabbed both legs simultaneously with needles. He silent screamed for about 5 seconds and then he screamed a scream I've never heard him make. I didn't even know he could cry like that. I swooped him up and I was a blubbering mess. His face was so pitiful. :(
|I felt like I was leading a lamb to the slaughter. He had no idea what was coming|
|He was kicking and smiling. I still haven't caught his smile on camera!|
I pray the coming week is better for the little guy!
