Another appt for DD (PIOG) *update with weight checks
We had another weight check for DD today. First off, I found out she has pneuomonia. Never saw that one coming. I took her in the beginning of the month but was told she just had a viral infection and it would go away on its own. Well now I guess that wasn't true. They said it would be bronchitis in adults, but pneumonia for kids. So I was given meds for that. And although she had gained 4 ounces since I took her in the beginning of the month when she was having diahrrea and throwing up, the doctor said it isn't enough. Apparently she is now kind of evening out instead of growing more. She's now <1 % in weight and 1% in height. So she isn't growing like the doctor said she should. She is now 21 months old, 30.3 inches tall, and 17 lb., 4 oz. in weight. So...once she gets better, the doctor wants to do blood tests on her to rule things out. She said usually this indicates they aren't getting the nutrition they need, but sometimes it's just that the child is a smaller child. She also wants me to cut back on the bfing, especially the snacking.
So we go back in two weeks.
Here's how she has been:
|12 m.||29 in (39%)||16 lbs, 3 oz (4 %)|
|15 m.||28.5 in (3%)||17 lbs, 7 oz (5%)|
|18 m.||30.1 in (8%)||17 lbs, 11 oz (2 %)|
|19 m.||18 lbs (2 %)|
|20 m.||17 lbs, 10 oz (<1%)|
|21 m.||30.3 in (1%)||17 lbs, 14 oz (<1%)|
(she lost weight between 19 and 20 months due to the diahrrea, and then gained 4 oz. in less than a month back even though she is still sick)
This is how my son was. He was ffed, but they have always been pretty close to the same in sizing with how they have grown since birth.
|7 m (7 1/2 m?)||27.25 in||17 lbs|
|9 m||28.5 in||17 lbs, 3 oz.|
|12 m||29 in (25%)||18 lbs, 2 oz. (<3 %)|
|15 m||30 in(10-25%)||18 lbs, 8 oz. (<3%)|
|18 m||31 3/4 in(10-25%)||20 lbs, 5 oz. (<3%)|
|2||34 1/2 in (50%)||22.2 lbs (<3%)|
|3||35.6 in (10%)||26 lbs, 11 oz (5%)|
