My son is 3 months old. was borna t 42 weeks, with no pregnancy complications, except he wouldnt get out and never dropped. I went from a planned homebirth, to induced hospital birth, after i hit 42 weeks. However, all the OB did was break my water, and my son was born 5 hours later.
he was born 8 lbs 4 oz, 14 inch head, 21 inch length. Good size
He gained weight well for the first 6 weeks.
After 6 weeks, he started with severe GERD, Apnea, and poor feeding. My ped suspected as well, that his soft spots were closed or closing, so she sent us to a neurosurgeon. My son's head has only grown 3 cm in 3 months, and he was diagnosed with relative microcephaly. He is still struggling to gain wt, and if we dont see a good gain this week, we will be going in to the hosptial, for the 3rd time, for a feeding tube. Developmentally, he smiles, coos, and makes eye contact. He rolled over lots, between 6 and 7 weeks, but has not rolled over at all for 5 weeks.
Anyway, i am searching and searching, and not finding much info, or support. I am filled with questions, and am having a hard time processing all of this right now.
I was wondering if anyone else has a diagnosis like this.
