2 Week Old Little Lady

2 Week STATs:

Weight: 7 lbs 15.5 ozs

Height: 20.5 inches

HC: 15 inches

This past Friday (7/27) we had Ashlyn's 2 week appt.  This was a big day for us seeing as how during her initial pediatrician visit at 1 week old she had lost weight.  At birth she was 8 lbs 4.7 ozs.  After leaving the hospital and adjusting to feeding her with the Haberman bottle because of the cleft, she was 7 lbs 9.1 ozs.  On Tuesday (7/17), she was found to be 7 lbs 5.5 ozs.  This obviously concerned me, so I rented a baby scale so I could weigh her daily to make sure she was growing.  Thankfully she has been on track since that time and at our last visit on Fri (7/27) she had gained 10 ozs in 10 days.  This was great news and she is right on track as most babies should gain between 1/2 to 1 oz per day at this age.  We have been given the thumbs up to continue with her current feeding schedule and we don't have to come in and weigh her weekly as was previously discussed. Ashlyn has been doing fantastic and she has made the transition smooth thus far.  She continues to sleep in 3-4 hr intervals.  She has become more alert recently and has been wanting to explore her surroundings with wider, brighter eyes.  She has been giving some smiles, mainly in her sleep, which is likely due to gas, but is super cute nonetheless.  She loves to snuggle with her tiny little booty in the air.  She definitely prefers to be swaddled, but can sleep without it as well as she does not startle too easily (much unlike Grant).

Pretty in Pink!
