Visiting nurse appt / Weight Check

According to Alison’s scale, Olivia weighed 8 lbs, 12.5 oz. Which is a 4.5 oz gain from last week. Oxygen levels were mid 70’s (I don’t have my notes with me right now).  I was concerned with the little weight gain for the week so I scheduled a followup weight check with Dr. Friedman for later in the day.

Olivia weighed 9 lbs at the Dr office! Dr. Friedman said she’s gained 23 oz in 18 days which is fantastic for a “healthy” baby – never mind a heart baby!  We no longer need to mix the formula as high calorie when supplementing with formula.

While I was at the doctor’s office we made some adjustments to Olivia’s meds.

Zantac is now 0.9 ml 2x a day. (used to be 3x a day which is a nightmare as she hates the med)

Amoxicillian is now 1 ml 2x a day down from 1.5 ml 2x a day – but she increased the concentration from 150 mg / ml to 250 mg / ml. This will increase as Olivia grow
