Rigby is two months old and weighed in at 15lbs 14oz at his 2 month appt. What a chunk! We also discovered at his two month doctor visit that Rigby is allergic to milk protein. So that explains why he’s been screaming all the time. The poor little guy was allergic to his food! And with eating every 2 hours for two months straight, he was practically torturing himself. I thought it was a little strange that he would stop nursing mid-way thru his meal to arch his back and scream, but I thought it was all just the reflux. Obviously not! We started soy formula (no more breastfeeding) and it’s been a complete miracle fix for him. He’s relaxed now and isn’t always stiff and crying from the pain. Now he just smiles and coos and giggles. Praise God!!
My good friend Jenny from high school stopped by last week with her new baby Landon. Jenny and I were actually pregnant and due at the same time. So baby Landon is just 2 days older than Rigby. It was fun being prego together and sharing all of our aches and pains and stories. We were calling and texting eachother like crazy the week before these boys were born. Besides sharing their birth week, these boys also share the same milk allergy and both had to have their circumcisions tweeked at their last dr. appts. I guess both Jenny and I are idiots and didn’t know that we needed to be pulling back the skin in that area to keep it from growing back together. Shouldn’t doctors tell you this stuff? No one told me and no one told Jenny. Um, OUCH! Poor babies. Their 2 month appts were a little rough…shots and pee-pee ouchies.
Here are a few pics of these boys. Please take note of the SIZE difference. Um yeah, one of the babies looks a little on the heavy side, don’t ya think? Look at the difference in the size of their feet alone…oh my goodness.
