  • Depends on when those visits were. Saying "then next time" and "first visit" don't say anything. Pediatricians are different and have well visits at different times.

  • I dont know when these vistits were, but I will tell you my daughters progress. Birth 20.5in 8lb 7.2oz. At 2 days old 20.5in 7lb 8oz, we went on a strict feeding schedule and then at 2 weeks old 21in 8lb 7oz. At 6 weeks old 22in 10lb 12oz. At 12 weeks 23.75in 13lb 14oz. So to me, your baby sounds just fine. As long as the Dr is not concerned and shows you her growth pattern and lets you kow what percentile she is in and explains what that means, then I wouldnt worry too much aboout it. I would worry, however, if she was lossing weight or not gaining anything.

  • Your profile says she's two months...her gain is GORGEOUS for that age. Go worry about her college fund, OK?
