We made it to the pediatrician yesterday for his 4-month check-up. I really loved his doctor in Utah, and was not looking forward to finding a new one. I searched for pediatricians on google, and after reading a few reviews, I selected one from a clinic that's near our soon-to-be house.
His new doctor is amazing! She spent a lot of time with us, checked Colin over thoroughly, and answered every question we had before we could even ask them.
The sad news...after checking him over thoroughly, we now know that he may be getting an ear infection, he has some kind of yeast diaper rash, and he has extremely sensitive skin.
We noticed several days ago that he had little bumps all over his arms, legs, and stomach, as well as a few patches of eczema. She gave us a list of lotions, laundry detergent, and other products to try. After a day of use, I haven't noticed a difference, but hopefully the bumps clear up soon.
We also decided, after getting the go-ahead, to start him on rice cereal. Here's the video of that :)
That's about the same face he makes when we make him drink formula. What a kid!
And in case you've made it this far in the post, and you're wondering, Colin's stats are as follows:
weight: 13 lb 14 oz (24%)
height: 25.5" (67%)
head circum.: 17" (71%)
Now that we're starting him on solids, hopefully he'll beef up.
He's apparently a little bitty guy.
Just right for our teeny tiner family!
