15 Month Update from the Doc
Here's Jack's 15 month statistics:
Weight = 23 lb 12 oz (only 6 oz heavier than his 12 month appointment), putting him in the 40th percentile
Height = 32.25 inches which puts him in the 80% percentile
So, that means he's a lanky lad.
Instructions to me & Craig from the Doc includes feeding him what we eat (oh dear) and stopping the bottle (oh crap). He also said Jack's a tad too skinny, possibly because he drinks too much water which makes him full and burn loads of calories. So only 4-8 ounces of water a day and 8-12 oz milk.
Tonight we tried for the first time to put him down without his bottle and he was upset for an hour. I was sat doing work at my desk and he was crying "mamaaaaa!" it was gut-wrenching. Even now (10.50pm) he keeps waking. We just can't do this cold turkey. We'll take away one at a time (bed, morning, day) with the bedtime one obviously first. I think we're in for a long week...
