Hello doctor

Julia's first pediatrician appointment is today. I have no idea what to expect. I am sure he will fully examine her.

I have a few questions about feedings and shots, but that is about it.

I wish I had posted this yesterday to get your suggestions of what to expect and questions to ask.

Cheers to a good weight and length growth. Hummm, Will she have gained weight by now? We'll see.

This is our second adventure out of the house. I hope we can get use to going an adventures.

Julia slept for near 5 hours between feedings last night into this morning. WOW.

How much formula were you feeding at near 1 week old? The nursery at the hospital was only feeding 1 oz +1ml, So just under 2 oz. Sorry, but I just can't see that being enough for her. I'll keep you posted on what the doc suggests.

Don't worry...none of us knew what to expect the first time. Your doctor will lead you through. He/she is there to answer any questions you have too.

It's been a long time...I have grown grandchildren...but 2 ounces was the normal start.

If I were you I would write out a list of all the questions. I did that and almost forgot the list all together. The doctor will give you papers to tell you what you should do - or at least tell you. This is so exciting!

If I recall correctly, I think babies may lose a little weight at first (just an ounce or two since they are so tiny in the first place).

As far as formula, I remember starting out at 2oz the first week and then they would slowly start drinking more and more. It will just depend on the individual baby.

Bailey drank somewhere around there in the beginning, but it was NOT every two to three hours, it was more often. Just curious if you are going to try BFing or feeding breastmilk?

Sorry I am sooo late getting this to you...but YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY!!! I am soooo excited for you. I have been watching this blog for so long waiting for this to happen for you. Congrats! This baby girl certainly is lucky to have you as parents, and so many angels to watch over her, too.
