2 Months

Baby C was 2 Months Old Yesterday!
Baby C weighed in at 10lbs 7oz and 22" long! She is in the 35th percentile for both. I was told today that at birth she was in the 5th percentile for her weight. Her head measured 15". For her previous stats check out THIS post.

Baby C received 3 shots and one oral vaccine at her appointment today. In the last two weeks, she has started to break out. It started on one side of her face and on her neck, but now it is all over her face and even her chest. I have been using a mild soap and water daily (plus her bath time when needed). I also try to make sure I dry her very well and have not been putting any lotion in those areas. I have read that this could be baby acne, but I wanted to be sure that it wasn't anything more. Her doctor told me today that it basically it a form of craddle cap and that it will get better (it may get worse before it gets better). I also asked her doctore about her strawberry birth marks. The one on Baby C's chest is puffy. She said that it is normal and that they will continue to grow, but possibly could go away by her first birthday.

We were not able to schedule Baby C's next appointment because the office's computers were down, but I will call first thing in the morning.

Ohh by the way, I am NEVER taking her to get shots by myself again..... she did not enjoy that part!

Oh yes, shots are so sad. Let me tell you, though, I'll take those ANY day over a circumcision. Now, THAT was awful. I love her onesies. I always meant to buy those and never did...and now Jackson is one month old and it seems futile:(. Oh well....

Poor Baby C. I hope she's feeling better. My little guy has shots today and I'm taking 2 people as back-up because I know I'm going to hate that part too. She's getting big!! Great job Mama!!(and Daddy too!!)

How CUTE are those pants!?!
I was actually born with a big puffy strawberry mark on my left shoulder, and it was gone by the time I turned 3. Now all that's left is a light, slightly scarry looking surface.

She's so darn cute! Aren't the shots the worst? I teared up after my baby screamed. It was awful.

Elijah breaks out like that and has cradle cap. Our doctor told us to stop using lotion (only if needed for spot treatment). And to only bathe with soap 1 time a week. He said babies don't need lotion or soap that much. It has cleared up most of the breakouts. you can put a drop or two of baby oil in the bath. That helped too.
