Zachary's first checkup

He looked good. The doctor didn't think his jaundice looked bad enough for blood testing or anything like that. She said as long as he's eating well and peeing and pooping well, he'll get it out of his body soon. And he was up an ounce from his birth weight too, which is good, considering a lot of babies lose some weight in their first week.

And boy is he ever! His appetite has finally caught up to the milk production and he's now starting to nurse from both sides on most feedings. Having a little problem with N. soreness on one side, but working on better latching and using Lansinoh lanolin is helping that. He's a great burper and hardly spits up anything at all. I'm glad to have a good little eater!

He had his first vaccination for Hep B. He did NOT like that! Man, did he turn red, but he calmed down as soon as I picked him back up.

Also, he seems to take a pacifier well so far. Neither one of the girls ever would, and Megan was a thumb sucker (still is in her sleep). It's interesting to see how different each of the kids already are.

Girl, you ain't seen nothing yet, if you want to talk different. Wait until that little boy gets up and going, he will give those big sisters of his a run for their money! :)
