Six Month Check Up
Josiah turned six months on January 26th. My, time has flown by! Today, we went for his six month check up, and I am once again amazed at how much he has grown. He weighs 20 pounds, 2 ounces and is 27 and 1/2 inches long. At his four month check up, he weighed 18 pounds, 12 ounces and was 27 and 1/4 inches long. He has passed Caleb in weight by almost 2 pounds but is one inch shorter. Our doctor mentioned that we could start introducing solids at this time if we wanted to. I asked what was the latest he would recommend starting solids, and he said that waiting until Josiah was seven or eight months was fine. He even said that a few moms have waited until their babies were around 10 months to start. Since Josiah is growing so well and eats so fast, we are in no hurry to introduce solids. He nurses for about ten minutes at a time except at bedtime when he nurses a little longer as he drifts off to sleep. We are thankful that he continues to remain healthy.
