The Trouble with Tyler
Later this afternoon, we headed over to the health unit for his 6 month shot. I have to admit that it's pretty nice (for me anyway) that because he had so many shots 2 months ago (three) he only had to have one needle today! He did AWESOME! There was no crying whatsoever. He sat there, sucked on a soother, and then giggled. That boy is so brave! Anyway, we weighed him again while there, and compared today's results with his 4 month results. He was weighed naked both times, and in the past two months, Tyler has lost 1 pound. The health nurse shuffled me over to the breastfeeding nurse who tried to see if maybe he and I were having latching problems and so he wasn't getting enough to eat. That does not seem to be the case. She suggested I start feeding Tyler meat instead of cereal and cluster feeding, and we'll go from there. I now have to go every Monday afternoon this month for a weigh-in to see if he's gaining anything.
*On a side note, there was an interning doctor at the breastfeeding clinic today. I have to admit that it kind of embarrassed me to have to feed Tyler in front of them, and have him ask the nurse questions about latching while watching what Tyler was doing. I think Tyler had a bit of performance anxiety as well!*
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Matthew 6:27
I know that my worrying isn't going to make Tyler start gaining weight, but I wish that it would, that kid would be huge by now!
