Hunter's First Doctor's Appointment
Hunter had his first doctor appointment on Friday, just 4 days after he was born. He weighed in at 8 lbs 5 oz which the doctor said was good, some babies loose a lot more weight. He didnt receive any shots, just a check up and the doctor said he was doing great. He will go back in another 2 weeks for his hepatitis shot along with a weight check. He is a great eater and has been on breast milk only since he was born. He eats about every 3 to 4 hours. We are in the process of working out a night time feeding 'routine' and so far it is going well. Clint feeds him a bottle of milk I pumped earlier at 8 pm and then I feed him again before we go to bed at 10:30ish. Then he wakes me up between 1 and 1:30 for a diaper and to eat. Then again around 4:30. Allie wakes me up at 7:30 to start her day, so I am getting about 5-6 hours total of sleep which is pretty good for having a newborn. He is such a great baby and we are so glad he is healthy and happy.
