Hadley Rose: month eight
Despite this post being much closer to nine months. I can assure you the pictures were taken closer to eight months. And that’s the part that counts the most, right!?
Month eight was a tough month for us. Jake and I decided to bring Hadley in for weight check, because despite her seeming fine and acting like a normal baby, she did not appear to be growing. At the weight check we found out Hadley had lost 1.5 lbs and was completely off the charts. We were sent home with instructions to begin feeding her solid foods like crazy and supplement with breast milk (along with weekly weight checks). I guess at some point my milk production dropped and I did not know. I had a hunch about this but then would read things that contradicted it.
Of course, I felt awful and everyone rallied around us telling me not to feel guilty. Hadley devoured solid food from that day on and a week later had put on seven or so ounces. The following week another 4. The nurse and doctor were pleased and said we did not need to come in for weight checks anymore.
Hadley became a happier and easier baby. She didn’t hold a grudge 😉 I am not sure if she is back on the charts yet, but I can assure you she eats a ton each day.
Ok, ok, ok! Enough of that.
