Lincoln is growing very well!!!! He was 8 pound 15 ounces, but he pooped just before he was weighed and ate right after, so my guess is he is 9 pounds today! LOL

and 23 inches long, just like his brothers, long and skinny.

I had to jump in and tell the doctor not to pull on his foreskin, I wasn't quite fast enough because every time I go there I have a ton of paper work to fill out - it is stupid, but she started meddling and I jumped up and started loudly telling her to stop pulling back the foreskin. anyway, I hope we don't have any issues next month, but I'm sure she will forget.

all she did was look in his eyes, ears and listen to his heart, check his fontanelle and play with his foreskin.

our pedi fron new jersey, always checked the baby's reflexes, the spine, hips, testicles.

Is this normal that they don't do these things?

here is a pic of my sweet baby

In my experience they are supposed to do more than what your pedi did, unless things have changed in that department over the years. Why the heck did she try to pull his foreskin back? That is crazy. I'm glad you stopped her although I don't understand why she found thay necessary.Lincoln is soooo cute! Love that pic! I'm glad he is doing well and growing strong!!

this doc has no clue about intact boys, she again told me he will get an infection if we dont force the foreskin back, and that the foreskin will harden and it will never retract... not the sharpest tool in the shed that i am dealing with...

Had an appointment today too. She did check his spine, but not reflexes and just glanced at his penis, didn't check testicles. I think it was because he had a cloth diaper on and she didn't want to undo the whole thing She just undid one side.

My pedi actually told me not to pull back the foreskin until he is like 5...I cannot believe yours does not know that! Yay for good growth and Lincoln is adorable.

PS: Beth, your kiddos are all so cute! I cannot believe you were able to get them all looking; I can barely do that with two!
