Nathan is one month old today. I just can’t believe it!
He had a checkup with the good pediatrician to make sure he’s getting enough to eat. Last Thursday we went to the birth center and Nathan weighed 9 pounds 6 ounces. Today he weighed 9 pounds 12 ounces. That means he gained 6 ounces in four days – which is GREAT! According to what I’ve read, babies should gain an average of 1/2 an ounce a day. He’s well surpassed that. According to the nurse, he’s still 20 inches long. But I think that’s wrong. She was having a hard time getting him to stay still to measure him, so she may have been off by an inch or two.
Anyway. He’s 50th percentile for weight, 25th percentile for length, and 95th percentile for head circumference. He’s growing well!!!
