Georgia's 15mo Well Check

I've been behind on blog posts lately but such is the life with 4 children ;)

Georgia had her 15mo well visit today.

Weight: 20lbs 2oz (34%)
Length: 31in (65%)
Head Circumference: 19.2in ("HIGH" aka >99%)
Hemoglobin: 11.8

She grew 2 inches in 3 months! Her weight gain is stable so we are fine continuing her dairy-free diet without supplementation. I was told I can introduce some dairy at 18mo if I want but am fine to wait until 24mo if I desire. We will continue her reflux medicine until after we are over the dairy intolerance.

Her hemoglobin level was great so I can start backing off the iron supplements but need to maintain an iron-enriched diet.

She was 100.2 at the appointment and I was given the option to delay her vaccines if I thought she was getting sick. I am pretty sure it is just from her incisors currently cutting so I gave permission for her to receive 2 vaccines today. I had wanted her to get the flu shot too but unfortunately, they weren't in stock at the clinic yet.

Developmentally is on track with nothing to worry about. She is "walking" (about 10 consecutive steps), talking, pointing, mimicking, etc.

Next well check is at 18 months.
