3-Day Well-Baby Checkup

Filed under: Checkups,General,Year 1 — Beth @ 19:00

Jules had his 3-day checkup this morning and everything went very well. He’s put on an ounce since he was discharged from the hospital, head measuring right on track at 14 inches, is only very mildly yellow around the edges so it looks like we won’t have to contend with jaundice (go boob juice!) and sounds and looks good in every other aspect.

My only concerns were a small fissure from all the pooping he’s been doing and the crustiness of his right eye. Doc took a look at the fissure and said it should close up just fine with diaper cream or vaseline applied and diagnosed the goopy eye as a blocked duct, not conjuctivitis, thankfully.

We go back in about a week for his 2-week eval.
