Took Zilya for her shots today. She is 13lbs 11oz(95%tile) 23"(75%tile) and head circum of 39cm..
I''ve never had a kid be above 50%tile b4!
Konor was: 12lbs and 22.5" and head 39 1/4cm..
Kyla was even smaller @ 11lbs 4oz and only 21 1/2"
We discussed Zilya''s eating issues, and says she has GERD:
Recurrent vomiting, stomach pain, coughing, wheezing and difficulty swallowing are all symptoms of pediatric GERD. GERD occurs when stomach acid backs up excessively, or â€śrefluxes,â€? into the esophagus. When stomach acid frequently and persistently comes in contact with the esophagus it causes irritation that can lead to GERD.
In children, GERD has been associated with chronic respiratory conditions such as cough, bronchitis, hoarseness and pneumonia. In the most severe cases, pediatric GERD can cause malnutrition and even failure to thrive. Thatâ€™s why itâ€™s so important to discuss any and all symptoms with your childâ€™s doctor as soon as possible.
So, for now he has changed her formula to Enfamil AR lipil. It is thicker, and has rice starch added. Hopefully she won''t spit/throw up as much and will fill her up so she won''t eat as much as she has...
Also, she has this scar like thing on side of her head. We thought just from birth. turns out it is Nevus and willl need removed. She sees a plastic surgeon June 14th.
