Chunky monkey

Avery went to the doctor again today. She weighs a whopping 7lbs 3 1/2oz. She gained 4 1/2oz in 5 days. Almost right on track! I asked for the nurse to measure her length as well and she was 21 1/4 inches long! She grew two and a quarter inches in 3 weeks! The doctor was very pleased with her progress and said we don't have to go back for another appointment for 2 week which is her 1 month check up. I also asked about getting her back off the bottle of breast milk 3 times a day and going back to strictly breastfeeding and she said that was a good idea. Avery is getting a little lazy with latching on since taking the bottle. She has to work harder for it when I breastfeed her and she isn't much a fan of the bottle. Her doctor said we could start tapering off the bottle feeding so she is only going to get 2 today and tomorrow and then probably 1 for a couple days and then back to just breastfeeding. Yay!!

A successful trip to the doctor!
