Last week, we had Chloe's one year checkup at Kaiser in Roseville. This was our first time meeting her new pediatrician after we switched locations. After moving to our new house, it just didn't make sense to keep driving out to Kaiser Point West to see the doctor out there. I really like Chloe's new doctor--he was great with Chloe and did a good job answering my questions in words that I could understand!!
Here are Chloe's new stats:
weight: 22 pounds, 6.6 ounces; 61st percentile
height: 2 feet, 6 inches; 65th percentile
Her doctor's only concern was the amount of milk that Chloe drinks. Chloe LOVES whole milk and would drink it constantly throughout the day if we let her. Her doctor said that too much milk consumption could lead to problems with iron absorption, so she should only have 2-3 bottles a day at this point. Ummm, some days she has that much by lunch!! So, now we are working on limiting the milk, and having more water. It is a slow work in progress.
