Pediatrician Visit


Yesterday we went for our first visit with the pediatrician, Dr. Fleming.  It was a momentous event as this was the first time we had gotten out of the house since coming home. 
The appointment went well.  She checked Sarah Graves out and said that she appeared to be doing well.  When we left the hospital she weighed 7 pounds 14 ounces and at our appointment she had gained an ounce back.  Dr. Fleming would like to see her get back to her birth weight soon, so we are trying to make sure that she nurses well.  This is no easy task as Sarah Graves has started falling asleep very quickly after nursing just a few minutes now that there is milk.  Dr. Fleming told us to rub her feet like they have bubble gum stuck on them to get her to wake up.  She's pretty stubborn and sometimes even this won't really get her going!
