WELL>>>> Brady is enjoying this game-playing he is doing. Twenty-one days ago he was 13 pounds. By gaining a 1/3 of an ounce a day, it would have been good if he was 13 pounds, 7 ounces. Notice I say "would". The Braidmaster was 13 pounds, 1 ounce. So, he didn't lose, although he didn't gain nearly what we would have liked.
I am touching base with the nutritionist today, but the pediatrician did make a couple of notes to me. First, he is not going to be doing any rapid-gain now like newborns do - they slow down on the weight gain, and the chart reflects that. Secondly, he is eating more food now (loves those 2s! Had chicken and apples last night and ate almost the whole thing!) whereas the formula has more calories. I will talk to the nutrtionist about that, because Brady is only eating two meals a day and formula for the rest, she might like that. Thirdly, he is getting longer - 25 1/4 inches - and he is not vomitting or having diarhea, so it's not like he's getting the food then getting rid of it - he's just not getting enough calories in. He is also doing really well with all his therapies.
Brady Brady Brady... will you never cease to drive me crazy???? I could have sworn he would have been OVER the seven ounces. I will fill you all in with the nutritionist's outake. The pedi wasn't too worried - we're not going back for three weeks.
