The boys had their 4 month check ups on Monday with immunizations. The doctor is very happy with their progress. Brady's head and length is the 50% for his adjusted age, with his weight at 10%. Jaxon doesn't quite make her adjusted chart except for his head at 10%. Their growth scale is the most important and its looking great.
The in-home nurse stopped by today. Here are their current weights:
Jaxon: 8lbs, 1oz
Brady: 9lbs, 12oz
Jaxon officially went over 24 hrs without a vomit or reflux. We've learned the key to his success is lots and lots of venting. So mama gets up every 1-3hrs over night to vent and administer meds. This seems to be doing the trick! Jax is also taking a few practice bottles too. Since he's on the continuous pump for food, it's hard to make him hungry enough to eat much from the bottle, so he's just taking snack-bottles a few times a day. I just want him to remember how to feed from the bottle for now. I want to make a plan with his speech therapist on how to try more. Jax will begin occupational therapy this week as well.
The boys on their way to the doctor!
