My little baby humans turned 4 months this week! And we celebrated by going to the doctor and getting shots! And while we were there, we got some measurements/percentages to share…
These percentages are based on regular baby growth charts, and not the preemie chart. So all things considered, they’re growing quite well! As you can see, Paisley’s maintained her lead since birth. We like to call her ‘generously curvy’ or ‘big boned’ or ‘not as petite as Adelyn’.
As you can see in the picture below, Adelyn obviously isn’t suffering from malnourishment. Her 10 gallon cheeks are SO SQUEEZABLE!
In other health-related news, Paisley’s hemangioma is healing slowly but surely, and it looks like we’re going to be able to dodge making a trip to see a Pediatric Dermatologist. Her Acid Reflux is also under control! Adelyn, however, has taken to night terrors… seriously such a scary thing! I didn’t even know babies this young could have that! I’ve been reading tons of forums and talking to other mom’s that have dealt with it, and it sounds like there’s not a lot you can do. Do any of you have experience with a young baby suffering from night terrors? How did you comfort him/her? Or did you notice any triggers to avoid? My poor little baby!
