First Doctor Visit

Cyrus had his first doctor visit on March 15 with Dr. Graham at Coastal Pediatrics, which we love. Link to their practice is here:

Cyrus weighed 6 lbs 9 oz, which is what his hospital discharge weight was. Dr. Graham said he looked great and was very alert for a newborn.

We had our second doctor visit on March 22 and Cyrus weighed 6 lbs 13 oz. Dr. Graham again said he was doing great and gaining weight, so no problems there. We go back at 2 months for his checkup and his DTap and RV vaccines.

We've decided to go with an alternative vaccination schedule that A) limits the number of vaccines he gets at a time and B) limits the number of vaccines with mercury given to one at a time. Here's some information for those that might be interested:

We also decided not to circumcize. We did plenty of research and decided that there was no medical advantage for having the procedure, so we opted out. Needless to say that has made diaper changes a lot less scary :)

Look for more updates soon!
