Owen at Two-Weeks Old

Owen had his two week pediatrician visit yesterday and he’s doing fantastic. My mind was set at ease to know his newborn screening test came back clean. They did do the heel prick test for his second Newborn screening test  because I guess they can’t do some test until baby has been eating for a few weeks. I should hear back on those results in the next week or so. I was so proud of my little man for not crying at all during his visit once.

Owen’s weight, height and head circumference was measured to review his growth since birth. He’s weighing in at 8lbs 13oz, height wise he’s 21.5 inches, and his head is 37cm. I’m very happy to see such progress in his growth.  The pediatrician commented on his strength and how observant he is and the size of his not so little feet.

In other news, he’s nursing great! He’s eating about every 2-3 hours and nurses for about 15-30mins. He sleeps through about 3-4 hour stretches at night give or take and we are all adjusting pretty well.
