As I said previously we were unhappy with our first pediatrician. For some reason they wanted us to come back for a second appointment this week. It sounds like typically newborns are seen for a newborn visit and then monthly for a few months, not weekly, unless something is wrong, and thankfully nothing is wrong with our little Olive. So in deciding to find a new pediatrician we weren’t sure if we should schedule something this week or wait a month or what. We decided we’d go ahead with trying to new ped this week because we were certain we could find more questions, which we did. We talked it over with the nurse and think we figured out a way to go about the appointments to make it work out in terms of billing. But I’m still a little stuck on why we were scheduled for a second appointment at the first place without telling us why. In looking at their appointment schedule online they say newborn, one month, two month, etc. Hmm.
At today’s appointment we learned that Olive now weighs 6 lbs 14 oz – she’s gained nearly a pound since we left the hospital! And she is now 20 1/4 inches. Yay Olive!
