Four Month Checkup
Scarlett is up to 11lbs 13oz and 24 in long. She is still in the 10-15th percentile for weight and just above the 25th percentile for height. She gained a whole 1lb this last month. Not to much, but considering I didn't supplement to much this last month it is a success. The nurse practitioner said she would like to see her gain a little bit more, but is not overly worried because she is right on track with all her developmental milestones. It is hard not to worry when you have a small baby, but I just keep telling myself she looks healthy, is pretty content most of the time, and her dad is small too. Plus she has never lost weight, she is just gaining really slowly. I really wanted to do baby led weaning, but if she can't keep her weight up I will have to just follow La Leche League's recommendations for introducing foods.
