2 Month Dr. Visit
Charlie had his two month dr. visit yesterday. Here are his stats:
Weight: 12 lbs 11 oz (75th percentile)
Height: 22.5 inches (50th percentile)
Head Circumference: 15.5 inches (50th percentile)
The good news is he is growing and healthy. He had a couple shots and only cried for a minute.
And the bad news....
They confirmed his cradle cap was pretty bad. She told us to put baby oil on it and scrub with a soft brush - its already looking better.
The rash on both his arms? Eczema. She did say most babies grow out of it. For now, we are to lather on cetaphil cream and aquafor.
Our baby has a flat spot on his head. I'm most concerned with this. It appears to be on right side. When he sleeps, he faces the right so he's developed a slight flat spot. We're going to put a blanket wedge under his head so he faces left at night. If it doesn't correct itself, he'll have to wear a helmet 23 hours a day. Poor Charlie. :( We're going to do our best to not have him lay with his face facing to his right.
