Pediatrician Appt Update

Owen went to his pediatrician appt this morning and here are the results:

Weight: 9lbs 10 ozs
Height: 22 inches

He is in the 50%tile for all of those measurements, so we are very pleased with those results! He doesn't go back again until he is almost 2 months old.....which I'm sure will be here before I want it to be!

Overall things have been going very well. He has been nursing exclusively during the day--no supplementing with formula, well unless he acts really hungry which hasn't happened much this week. When Daddy gets home from work he usually feeds him with a bottle a few times during the evening. Generally the first one or two is of breast milk and the last one before bed is usually formula. I pump during the evening hours to stock up for the next nights bottles:) Since we have been on this new routine, he has generally been sleeping between 4 and 5 hours for his first stretch and then about 2 1/2 to 3 hours for his second stretch. It has been really nice for me since I am the one doing the nighttime feedings right now:) He is definitely a growing boy--which works for all of us! I can't believe that he will be 5 weeks old tomorrow!
