Truman had another pediatrician appointment yesterday. The pediatrician is happy overall with his health and developmental progress, but is concerned about the fact that we have seem to have increasing eating issues. That prompted the doctor to refer us to a feeding clinic for weekly sessions.
In recent weeks, Truman has returned to his earlier ways of screaming through bottle feedings and trying to refuse bottles altogether. And, he has become a lazy breastfeeder. Although he is always eager to breastfeed, he seems only to get satisfied overnight and early in the day when the supply is greater and nursing is easier. So, trying to keep him happy and full has become quite a struggle. I was so glad to hear that there may be special help to ease these issues, particularly considering that I am returning to work full time in about five weeks because we won't be able to cut bad bottle sessions short and offer breastfeeding as an alternative while I am at work.
Developmentally, Truman hit another milestone this week. He began tracking moving objects with his eyes and head. We noticed it on Sunday. He was very obviously following Ben's hands with his eyes and whole head. I've noticed in the last couple of days that when I put him down in his bouncy seat, he watches me walk away from him.
