My Baby On His Doctor's Appointment

My Spring rolls with Dr. K

This was the second time we took him to his Pediatrician for his monthly check-up where he got five vaccines. The first time was, when he was 2 months old. He did pretty good and didn't get fever at all. In fact we were able to travel and visit my mom-in-law the next day. My baby was turning 5 months old in  a few days when this photo was taken. His big brother came with us along with my husband, since his big brother had only a half day of school. When we came, we were greeted by friendly nurses of the clinic. The nurse that will be taking care of him led us to the room we will be using. 

In the room, the nurse told me to take away the baby's clothing and leave a dry diaper on. She was going to do some measuring work. Among the things she measured was the baby's height, weight and head circumference. She then input the data in the computer and compared the baby's measurements with his last exam two months ago. Everything went well and my baby was progressively growing healthily. He was measured 25 1/2 inches tall and weigh 17 lbs.  

Dr. K, the temporary pediatrician came and performed a physical examination on my baby. The original doctor was on maternity leave. He asked us a few questions like baby's sleeping habit, baby's food and stuffs. We asked him if it is okay for the baby to drink fruit  juices. He didn't recommend it and told us that breast milk is best for the baby for now. Juices are high in sugar and has artificial flavoring especially from the store. He even mentioned that the water from the faucet is safer to give to the baby than the water we get from the store. According to him, Wisconsin is one of  the states that has cleanest water system  while purified water from the store, we don't really know how it was processed. He added that some Pediatricians has different views about this. Some doctors think that the purified water from the store are safer for the baby. All went well and he congratulated us for the job well done raising my kids
