It is quite an event to be able to take the triplets to the doctors. I arranged for a friend, Dolores to stay with the older 3 while my sister and I took the triplets for their appt. The appt took 1 hour and 40 minutes. We had 2 shots and each one got the look over. Their weights are as follows:
-Colin 16lb 15oz - 26.5 in long - 17 in head
-Declan 16lb 9 oz - 26.5 in long - 17.25 in head
-Finn 19lb 4 oz - 26 in long - 17.5 in head
They are almost sitting up on their own and I need to work more on this with them. They roll from back to front very easily but don't roll from back to tummy yet. They are eating at least one meal a day and my pediatrician said that they should be eating 3 meals a day. Whatever...like that is going to happen. I have to say that I hate that every pediatrician seems to be different. My old pediatrician that I just loved always said..feed them but remember before they turn a year you are only teaching them to eat..they get everything they need from the formula. BTW..he was my favorite pediatrician but he was too far away and it was a huge hassle to go to him. I still dont think I am happy with this one. Anyway. Things seem to be well and she was happy with their progression. I am splitting up their shots because I am one of those paranoid mothers that thinks that if their is any remote chance that immunizations are linked to autism than I want to do everything I can to avoid any causes. We are all sleeping thru the night.. 7pm till 7 am and usually 2 naps a day. Our morning nap is 1.5 hours and afternoon is usually 1.5 to 3 hours depending on the day. I have a pack n play set up in another room and I always put the baby that I dont think will sleep as well in it. Call me crazy but if I have a fussy one than that one is going to be by himself for a nap. It worked great with the twins when I did this method. TGIF and let the day begin.
