Just Out of the Oven The first year of your baby's life is so crazy and fun. You need a place to get support and advice from other members with newborns, as well as somewhere to brag and tell funny stories.

4 month appt.

Trenty is 15lbs, 25in, and he's got an average head Click here to enlarge, basically he's average all down the line. I was expecting him to weigh more but I think he just carries all his weight in his ham thighs Click here to enlarge. Dr is up my butt about starting solids, I told her it's impossible to feed him solids since he can't sit up assisted yet (he really can't), and finally she agreed with me Click here to enlarge.

He's not feeling well from his shots so it's been a very blah day Click here to enlarge.

Ugh I am so tired I didn't finish my thought! She told me 'well if he seems hungry and is grabbing at things' Click here to enlarge, so when he tried to grab the scissors off the table should I just let him have those too? I have no idea what the obsession is with starting solids, it's messy annoying and most babies hate it at first.

Big fella! Click here to enlarge We must be on the same schedule, Jameson's appt is tomorrow. Click here to enlarge I'm interested to know what my doc is going to say about solids. J isn't sitting up unassisted yet either and I'm also worried from a food allergy perspective, considering his brother is allergic to everything under the sun. Good for you for saying no.

Sounds like a great appt. Don't stress about the solids. Even though Logan could sit up assisted at that age, I still didn't start them.

4 months is early for solids isn't it? He's so cute! Glad it was a good visit.

Click here to enlarge He is adorable. My doc was pretty laid back about solids, told me I could start them at 4 mos but certainly didn't push anything.

I too wouldn't worry about what the dr is saying. Momma knows best.

I forgot to post after J's appt. My doc said to start solids too and I told her I wasn't going to because of J1's food allergies. She was OK with that and said to wait until 6 months. I'm just going to wait and see how I feel then.

Thanks! Look at his poor rashy face. I think he's going to be sent for allergy testing. Blah.

Your little man is pretty darn adorable! Click here to enlarge

He's so gorgeous. Click here to enlarge Good for you for ignoring the solids thing. I can never tell if I have exceptionally good luck with pediatricians or if I send off a "Fuck you!" vibe, because they never argue with me about my decisions. Click here to enlarge
