Yesterday I had my 6-week postpartum checkup with Dr. B. Everything went very well and I don't need to see him again for anything related to this pregnancy/delivery. Today I have an eye appointment. After that we'll be taking Riley to see her pediatrician, Dr. K.
On Sunday morning I noticed a lot of red bumps on her left cheek and up into her hairline and behind her ear. I consulted a few websites that I trust, but was disappointed to find descriptions such as "itchy rash", etc. I have no idea if it is itchy and Riley obviously cannot tell me. The rash is on the side of her face that she sleeps on, so I assumed it could be from spitting up in the night, lying on the moisture, and then the pores getting clogged. My sister-in-law confirmed this assumption and I felt much better. However the bumps/rash have now spread to the other cheek, up into that hairline, and on the back of her neck. I called the pediatrician's office late last night and thankfully they were able to get us in for an 11:50am appointment today. As always, I look forward to getting Riley weighed. My guess is 9lb 11oz ... we shall see!
