6 month check up

Well Monday Aiden had his 6 month check up. He is 15lbs 12 ounces and 28 inches long. The doctor said he was skinny. Even though he is very long. The thing is he eats like a pig. He will eat a stage 2 container of baby food plus a stage 1 container for lunch, breakfast and dinner is oatmeal with a fruit, plus 4-5 6 oz bottles a day. So his eating isn't a problem. Is there anything else I can do? I do know my son is very tall for his age. He has been that way since birth. He was 9lbs 2 ounces and 23 inches long.

How about your little ones for their 6 month appointment. How much do they weigh and how long are they?

Oh I forgot to say that Aiden can now sit up with the support of his hands and today he learned how to hold his own bottle.

Oh yeah he has 2 teeth now. The first one cut March 21st and the second one on April 1st. I think he will be cutting another one soon. He is biting down on everything and anything.

Sarah had her 6 month appt on  4/14,
she is 14lbs 12oz 27 1/2 inches long,  she is still eating like a bird!  3-4 oz every 3-4 hrs, the Dr's finally gave us the okay to put her on solid foods, but she doesnt like them at all,
she hates pears and banana's,  but i've had some sucess with the apples,
we are lucky if she eats 5-6 bites of fruit and 6-7 bites of rice!
she has 2 teeth,
she has been sitting up on her own for a while, and she thinks she can walk, she will run like a bat out of hell if you hold onto her hands and let her go!
she has outgrown her sleeping faze!  she is now getting up at least 2x a night to eat, but that's good considering she doesnt like to eat during the day
