6 Month Well Visit

Brandon had his 6 month well visit at the pediatrician today. He weighs 13 pounds and is 24 3/4 inches. He finally made it onto the regular growth chart for his length but is only in the 5th percentile. It is still great that he finally made it onto the regular growth chart. Dr. Kerensky was very happy with how well Brandon is doing. He wants me to wait until the appointment next month to really start solids but said that I could play around with cereal if I want to. He wants him to still get most of his calories from formula and is afraid that won't happen if I start him on solids now. He only should be 3 months old so it really is not a big deal. Brandon has a little thrush in his mouth. Dr. Kerensky prescribed something for me to put on Brandon's tongue to help with it. I am a little annoyed because when he was having his bottle issues I brought him to the pediatrician because someone from a preemie message board that I am part of said it sounded like thrush to her and the pediatricians that we saw said it was not thrush. We didn't see Dr. Kerensky because we just saw the pediatricians that were working on the days that I took him. Brandon had his flu shot today, his last rotavirus, and two other injections. He was not a happy camper. When we got home Brandon passed out for several hours. I took a picture of him when he woke up but you can see how tired he looks.
