Six Month Well Baby Check

Libby is almost 8 mths old now, and so it was time for the 6 month checkup! Yes, a little late. Story of my life! In fact, my mom said I was born late, so you see, I've been doing this late thing since birth. I'm good at it! And so it goes... the six month well baby checkup.

Libby is 19 lbs 3 oz, and 28 inches long. I have no idea if that is small, average or big. She still feels like a little peanut. She crawls everywhere now! And pulls herself up to standing, but the doc just asked if she is rolling over yet. Yes. She does that trick too.

The doc said we can introduce the sippy cup now. Gosh, I did that months ago because she won't drink out of a bottle. She won't drink out of a sippy cup either though. I've tried 'em all. And she won't eat baby cereal, baby food veggies or baby food fruit. Or any combinations of those things. She won't eat and she won't drink. Period.

The doc says to keep trying and if she won't eat, give her formula. What? Did you listen to anything I just said? Geez. My doc was in la-la land today. She must have had something on her mind, she didn't listen to me today.

I told her I'm worried about food allergies, specifically bananas since Libby broke out in hives after her sitter poked some banana in her mouth. The doc said to try giving her applesauce and bananas. Why would I give her bananas? And we can test her for allergies when she turns a year old. That's fine. That'll be soon the way time is flying by anyway.

Libby got three shots in her legs and then we were outa there. It was a strange office visit. I couldn't believe the crazy advice I got today. Whacky!

Libby must be eating something if she is gaining weight. I went through all that stuff with Rob. Maybe the doc thought she was 6 months instead of nearly 8.

Sounds like you need a new doctor. Stupid to suggest something she is allergic to!
