Four Month Appointment
BM had his four month appointment today. He got a clean bill of health! He's still a little guy-he weighs 11 pounds 14 ounces and is 23 inches long. This put him in the 5% for both height and weight.
Doctor A asked if we had any concerns and I told him that BM is very fussy. During the exam BM was very compliant and even seemed to be enjoying himself. It wasn't until seconds after that the doctor witnessed first hand what I meant by fussy.
Then to make matters worse, our regular nurse came in with another nurse who is in training. The nurse in training pulled out the needles for his immunizations. In my mind I realized that everyone starts out new and needs experience but in my heart I didn't want my baby to be poked by a rookie. Fortunately, the nurse did just fine and BM survived.
