Gannon 1 month old.
This is what Gannon's bottles look like. They're called Medela Haberman Feeder.
This was a blessing because our insurance was then able to cover some of the cost (4 bottles = $111.00). Back home we started biweekly weight checks, then back to weekly weight checks and by his two month check-up we were told that Gannon would be able to do normal well baby check-ups. On Feb 6th (3-months old) he had tubes put into his ears.

The left ear has been clear, but the right ear has been draining green oozy puss off and on ever since. At his follow-up appointment it was so clogged they couldn’t even attempt a hearing screening, and Dr. Sidman vacuumed it out. At his 4-month check-up he weighed 19 lbs 7oz, 27 in, and a head circumference of 17in.

Last night Gannon was up most the night crying with a fever, and this morning 2 hours after giving him Tylenol his temp was still at 99.6 under the arm, and he only ate 2oz of formula since 4:00am, so I took him into the clinic. He weighed in at 20 lbs today, and is wearing 9month clothing already! During his visit he was tested for RSV, and Influenza; the good news it was not RSV, the bad news he has the flu which this year includes a sore throat. Tomorrow we have to go get his ear vacuumed out again, this time I’ll try to get a picture of the vacuum they use; it’s kind of interesting.
