Baby pictures

DA is almost a month old. Today we went to the pediatrician. He checks out well! 11 lbs 2 oz now. I have him in 6-9 month clothes and diapers for 14lb babies (AP can and does wear the same ones!)

The doc said I simply must supplement vitamin D. I hate baby vitamins and the resulting black poo and my gut feeling is that they aren't needed, so I consulted my old friend Kellymom (actually its just a really good website)and she explained the reason behind prescribing vitamins http://www.kellymom.com/nutrition/vitamins/vitamin-d.html
Kellymom also helped me decide about when to start solids and whether or not to give my kids fluoride.

My neighbor is a family doc with a new baby, and they don't give him any vitamins, and baby is exclusively breast fed. I'm going to check out that website.

way to go Kellymom. I actually met Kellymom once. She is Mickemom's sister.
