What questions to ask at infant's 4 month appointment?

I have been compiling a list of questions to ask...mostly feeding...how much when to give solids, etc.  Her weight and height (she is BIG), teething...what to expect, how to sooth baby.  What other concerns might I expect between now and her 6month appointment?  I just hate calling advice nurses, because they all give different answers on things.  I would rather ask a doctor instead.  

Just want other's opinions...

Milestones coming up...developmental things you should be working on with her.  (rolling over, sitting up, tummy time etc...)  

My ped. never addresses that but I used to work in Early Intervention so I have all of the developmental charts, etc...It would be nice to get ideas from my doctor though!!!

OH!  One more!  My ped. never does this either so I always have to ask...based on your DD's current weight, what dosage she can have of OTC medicines?  0.4ml?  0.8ml? (tylenol, motrin, benadryl etc...)  It's nice to know since most bottles say 'consult a physician' and I don't think of it until my DD is sick and needs a medicine!

Hi, Amy.  I didn't know that you used to work for EI.  What did you do for them?  The reason I'm asking is b/c I'm a speech-language pathologist and work with kiddies that young as well so I was just curious :)
