6 month check up

Chase had his 6 month check up today. He is 28.5 inches long 96th percentile. They predict he will be 6'2"! He weighs 20 pounds 5.5 ounces 89th percentile.

We got the go ahead to start feeding him solids. Since the rice cereal has slowed his poop down we are only going to do cereal once a day. We of course have to wait 3-4 days in between introducing new things. Once he's eating a few different things his doctor suggested doing two things like a cereal and fruit and then fruit and veggie. We will start out feeding him twice a day. His doctor and I would love to get him sleeping 8 hours a night!!! I feel like Chase puts himself to sleep, but I'm going to work on putting him in his crib drowsy just to make sure. He wakes up a lot, like usually 3 times a night, and he's getting too old for it.

His doctor was happy that we are trying to do 2 2 hour naps. Which is what she told us and a friend of mine he should be doing at 6 months. She said as long as he gets about 3 hours of napping in a day that's fine. She said don't wake him up after 2.5 hours, let him go 3 hours and realize that his 2nd nap will probably only be about 30 minutes.

Besides that stuff everything was great! Poor little man had to get 4 shots!


  1. Yay for Chase!
    He's going to be a tall boy :)

  2. Wow, what a big boy! He's gonna be so tall! That's awesome. Glad the appointment went well (besides those darn shots)!

  3. Happy 6 months! I hope he starts sleeping though the night soon. I hear solids really help!

    My little man has his 2 month shots tomorrow, I am dreading it big tome!

  4. Yay! He's exactly - EXACTLY! - the same size as my 16-month-old :) Hilarious! I loooooved 2 two-hour naps - got so much done!
