12 Month Well Baby Checkup

Yesterday Chloe finally had her 12 month well baby checkup. Almost 3 months late!
 Between waiting for our insurance to kick in, finding the right pediatrician, and the month long waiting list we were on just to see this doctor it's no wonder it took us so long to get our daughter in for an appointment. Chloe's last well baby checkup was at 9 months old, right before we moved to Chicago so I was pretty anxious to get her seen by a doctor, it's always nice to have that extra reassurance ya know?

The great news, Chloe is as perfect as can be!

Chloe is growing beautifully and is right on track! Her doctor said she is in perfect health and to keep doing what we are doing! Such amazing news for any parent to hear!


Chloe weighs 25 lbs even and is 31 1/2 inches tall. In 5 months my sweet Chloe has gained 4 lbs and has grown 2 1/2 inches.


Since Chloe's been born we have had her on our own vaccine schedule. The ones Chloe gets are the HIB, DTAP, and Polio vaccine. She has had three rounds so far so her doctor said she was all caught up and didn't need another round of the vaccine until she was 18 months old.

We are so happy with the pediatrician we have chosen for Chloe, him and his staff are extremely supportive of breastfeeding, natural medicine, proper nutrition, and selective / delayed vaccines. These are the things that are very important to both Mike and I so it was important to us to find a pediatrician who's supportive of our parenting decisions.

Overall Chloe's appointment went great! Her doctor and his staff were so kind and gentle and Chloe only cried once while the doctor had to check her out! Her next appointment will be at 18 months, I cant believe how fast my sweet Chloe is growing!
