Shortly after Bennett's 3 month mark he got sick so we took him into our pediatrician's office and met with a different doctor. It turned out to be just a cold, but a tender mercy of being informed of his flat head was discussed. The doctor educated us on how to stretch and position Bennett to eliminate pressure on his right side. His 6 month appointment would tell us if we would need a helmet to correct his irregular head shape.
So off we went to our 4 month well check up. Things with Bennett were looking great.
He's grown into quite the chunky monkey with a long torso and legs to match his massive feet. Bennett is 17 lbs 2 oz and 27 inches putting him in the 89% for weight and 98% for height, but only 49% for head circumference My boy is gonna be a ball player thats for sure!
Our doctor recommended Bennett go to physical therapy to further determine if a helmet is the best option for his progression so we will be scheduling that appointment soon.
Overall Bennett has developed quite the cute personality. He love talking... and talking LOUD. If you start to babble back at him he babbles even louder.
He has developed a love for blowing bubbles and drooling EVERYWHERE. He saturates multiple bibs a day with his out of control drooling and sucking on his hands.
He doesn't love any binkie and will only keep it in his mouth if you hold it there.
Clothes wise he is tightly fitting into his 6 month clothes and has even transitioned into 9 month jammies. We are in the process now of switching him to size 3 diapers.
Bennett is still a pretty decent sleeper lasting from 9:30pm-6:30am on most days straight. Sometimes with a quick feed at 3am or 5am. His naps typically consist of several 30-45 minute cat naps and one large 2- 2 1/2 hour nap that either takes place in the morning or late afternoon.
The boy dominates formula. He eats anywhere from 4-7 oz every 3 or so hours.
On another note. Basketball season is coming to a close today. We have enjoyed the last few months being a Spartan. Sadly we didn't make it into the state tournament, but that won't stop our little basketball family from attending all the state playoff games with kettle corn in hand. :)
