We had another weight check today at the pediatrician’s office. Lucy gained another 4 ounces, putting her 4 ounces shy of her birth weight. It wasn’t as fast of a weight gain as the first 4 ounces, but we were supplementing with formula at that time and have since stopped doing so. The doctor seemed pleased with the weight gain and said that Lucy is definitely getting enough to eat. That makes me feel a lot better about myself. Even if I only produce as much as I am now, I know that she’s getting plenty and I am able to pump a bit for later.
The doctor told us at that at Lucy’s 6-week checkup she will get her first round of shots — five in all. He said we can split them up and do three then and two a week or two later, but I think I’m leaning toward doing them all at once. I figure if there was a problem giving that many shots at one time then it wouldn’t be done, and why have her go through it twice when we can get them all done at once.
How did you have your child’s vaccines done — all at once or at separate appointments?
