Mason had his 1 month check-up yesterday and got a glowing report. He is now 21 inches long (50th percentile), 8 lbs 10 ounces (25th percentile), and his head is 38 cm (50th percentile). I have been concerned about his mucousy diapers but Dr. Honeycutt said as long as he is growing appropriately and doesn't seem to have any other symptoms not to worry about it at this point. She said he looks great and is doing well with his head control. She warned us about his shots at the next appointment and then sent us on our way. I was happy his appointment went well, but still frustrated I don't know exactly what is causing his diaper situation. I know she said not to worry, but the mom in me can't help but worry that something is wrong. I have a month to figure it out and hope things look better for next month.
Mason doesn't have a lot of milestones to pass for the month, but he has accomplished a few things. He is now giving us smiles when we smile at him. He is able to hold his head up off the floor for a few seconds during tummy time. And he is now allowed to fully eat on demand at night and went 5 hours between feedings which gave me 4 solid hours of sleep, which is better than the usual 3 hours. Hopefully he'll keep stretching that out and give me even more over the next month because Momma is tired.
