We filled out a development questionnaire and Dr. Deuber thought Luna was doing great!
She also had her iron checked and was a 11.4 (11-14 is normal) so I need to keep taking my prenatals and continue her iron fortified cereals.
Luna had her Hep B shot, I had avoided it as I did not think she needed it per Dr. Sears, MD until she was 2 years of age, but Dr. Deuber thought she needed it and she didn't have any more shots today, so I agreed to have them inject the poor thing! I had a bad reaction to it when I was 18, so I was nervous but so far she has been okay.
Dr. Deuber also recommended child proofing as much as we can, and to start putting her in a playpen now, so that when we need to really use one, she doesn't see it as punishment (like when we have to run to the bathroom and put her down somewhere)
Here is a short recap on her development:
-Still breastfed about 5-6 times a day (in 24 hours)
-Sleeping from 7pm-7am and wakes up 1-2 times at night, still trying to wean off those night feedings
-Rocking on all fours, and crawling backwards
-She loves rocking back and forth to music
-Babbling a lot, and has said mama and dada but was not towards us, darn! Maybe next month!
-She loves her farm toys, and all music/light up toys, as well as her Pretzel Dachshund
-Wearing 6-9 months clothing still but more of a 9 month old now
-Loves going outside and swinging in her pink swing- cries when we take her inside
-She loves, loves her Kindermusik class, especially the part when she is dancing and cries when we have to sit down
-Still takes a pacifier at night
-Her favorite foods are Yo Baby Yogurts, Mangoes, Peas/carrots, butternut squash, egg yolks and avocado
After Luna's big doctor's appt, she got to take a nice bubble bath with her mommy! Her first time with Bubbles, and we used California Baby, since it's non-toxic. She ended up eating a bunch of them :)
