2 Weeks - Doctor Visit


May 21

Samantha is 2 weeks old! Her 2-week checkup went well. At 2 weeks they make sure that babies are at least back up to their birth weight. Our little eater is WELL above hers - she has already gained over a pound, and is now 8lb 6oz. She has also gotten taller, and is 20 3/4" long. She is definitely eating well! She's still not pooping very often, but since everything else is just fine, it looks like her system is just slower than the average baby. Not to worry! Her belly button is almost completely healed now, so soon we'll be able to give her her first real bath.

Her next checkup is at 2 months!

Breastfed babies don't poop as often. I was worried about Everlee and your sister told me that. It's very helpful news :)

Good to know! She's very regular at every other day now. And they are usually massive blowouts. Awesome! LOL
