Lily's 4 mo appt - concerned about an OT problem
Lily had her four month appt today. She was born at 5 lb 15.4 oz (lowest recorded 5 lb 6 oz) at 36 weeks. Today she was 14 lb 5 oz! Yay momma milk! The Pedi was very complimentary although she did say I could start solids and when I said I'm not she was like "Okay, we will talk about it at her 6 month appt". I plan on BLS so it's when she's ready - not when the Pedi says she's ready but whatever. In one ear...out the other.
My concern is that during the eval the Pedi noticed her labia minora is partially fused. She assured me its normal and will almost certainly release by the time she is two. Has anyone else had this or heard of it? Upon consulting Dr. Google is seems a myriad of things can cause it... But the most trustworthy sources say its a baby's general lack of estrogen and will resolve. Estrogen cream can be applied in severe cases but obviously I DO NOT want to put a synthetic hormone on my daughters vulva.
Someone please tell me this has happened to your dd and its turned out okay - I hate feeling like there's something "wrong".
