Chunky Monkey

Lexi had a pedi appointment today for a weight check. When she went 2 weeks ago the ped was "concerned" because Lexi had only averaged a 0.9 ounce weight gain per day and he likes to see a 1 ounce weight gain per day...Please. My little meatball knocked it out of the park today. She averaged a 2 ounce weight gain per day! She weighed 6lbs 6 1/2 ounces 2 weeks ago. Today? 8lbs 5 ozs! Almost a 2 lb weight gain!

We've also switched her to Similac Sensitive. So we'll see how things go from here with the gas issues. Last night was NOT a good night. Her gas was SO BAD! She had mommy crying! Daddy was flustered as well. We only each slept about 2 hours total...and mine came between 7am and 9am!

So I'm off to take a nap now that Lexi is sleeping!

Oh, that poor thing... did you try Mylicon? That really helped my kids.

Woo hoo, go Lexi!

Mylecon didn't seem to do much for ours, but gripe water really seemed to help.

That's so great that she gained so much weight!
