It’s Time To Play Guess My Weight

So yesterday Sadie went to see the OT (occupational therapist) who saw what I saw which is that she has a messed up mouth grip – that’s the technical term for it. Her latch is for shizzle. Meanwhile Sadie continues to drink up to 20 oz of formula a day since Friday. Today Sadie went to the Gastroenterologist (who doesn’t take Blue Cross, by the way) and it was determined that she’s doing well and may need just an appetite stimulant. The appetite stimulant is a hormone like progesterone, I was told so, of course, I asked if it would prevent pregnancy – because who doesn’t enjoy a sexually active four-month-old joke? Here’s the fun part for you: Friday, Sadie weighed 7 lbs. 14 oz. guess how much she weighed today. Whoever is closest without going over gets an autographed copy of my book (hey, it’s that or a used copy of the About a Boy soundtrack – you decide). I will run this contest until Friday and pick a winner.

    Good news.

    I guess:

    8 lbs, 4.3 oz

    And although I love “About a Boy” I would definitely take the book.

    wow, one must get in here early or all the good numbers are taken. I was gonna vote for 8 lbs 6 oz, but someone beat me to it. In an act of true competitiveness, I’ll go for 8 lbs. 6.1 oz. Brutal, huh?

    I’m so thrilled that you had some good news! I missed my brown eyed girl today. I hope she’s better.

  21. RitaI said,

    ok, so I’m sure your doc already checked this, but I just read about this thing wear some babies are born with their tongue attached wrong(which I guess is one reason why some women struggle with breast feeding) anyway, it creates latching and sucking problems. It’s supposedly just an easy procedure in the pediatricians office where they have to snip and stitch.
    also, another stupid thing-but, have you talked to your pediatrician about starting her on solids. They used to start them waay earlier back in the day. I know its not reccomeded anymore but whatever.

    A contest? Yippee! Why is everyone guessing what I would guess? I’m never going to win.
    8 lb 10 oz.

    So happy to hear she’s doing better. Hope the “pill” helps her out. Thinking good thoughts!

    I was going to guess 9lb 2 oz, but someone beat me to it. So, I am going for 9lb 3oz. I have a feeling Sadie is going to blow my guess out of the water.

    Way to go, Sadie!

    So far one of you is right on the money. I won’t say who yet but on Friday I will announce winner or winners. Anyone who guesses exactly right will get the book. And, thanks for all the love for Sadie. She is a feisty little thing.

  28. A Mom Two Boys said,

    I’m on the 8/8 bandwagon.

    And are there people who don’t think a joke about a 4 month old being sexually active is funny? Because I do. They’re probably the same people who were mean to you after your Today Show interview and they’re just jealous cause their babies ain’t got game.

    Slim Sadie is moving towards Shapely Sadie. Yay!

    8#,10oz
    Sadie rocks! Never fails, soon as you take ’em to the doctor, problem disappears with little or no intervention. Something to do with the air in the office. I’m a pediatrician and I see this all the time.

    This is fun! A couple of you have already won but I promised I wouldn’t close it until tomorrow at which time I will blog again and announce the winner. Then, you will receive a book and special surprise of my choice. Be afraid. Be very afraid. Hee hee.

    And thanks for the support. It’s still a lot of work to feed her but it’s paying off.
