Sleep: He’s going to bed between 8pm and 9pm and sleeps till around 4am. This past week he is been a little fussy going back to sleep after the 4am feeding, but then falls back asleep until around 7am. During month 3 my goal is to get you to sleep through that 4am feeding and sleep till 6am or later.
Clothes: Still in Size 1 diapers which is what he came home from the hospital in and really needs to move to size 2 diapers, but I’m waiting on a shipment! Growing out of newborn clothes and wearing 0-3 months or even 3-6 month clothes.
Likes: the swing, walks outside, being outside in general, hanging out on his activity mat, sitting straight up, being burped, white noise, morning time snuggles in my bed, bath time, and eating.
Dislikes: doesn’t love tummy time for too long, but has good neck strength. sometimes he fusses at his diaper being changed and sometimes he’s just fine. You still tend to be fussier in the evenings from 530-730 or so, but I’ve been working on making sure you take your afternoon naps and that has seemed to help some.
Diet: Mom’s milk and I’ve been able to eliminate supplementing with any formula the last few weeks because my milk supply has been good and I’m able to freeze pumped milk now. He eats about 6 times a day…approx every 3 hours during the day.
Milestones: You are so alert and full of smiles. You actually can smile on demand now which is about the cutest thing in the whole world. You love your Mama and can definitely locate my voice and find me which I love. You seem to be becoming much more patient and content. We will find you awake in your crib just hanging out or you will wake up in your swing and just sit there quietly where as you used to cry as soon as you woke up to let us know you needed something. You are trying to roll over on your own, but haven’t done it yet. On your tummy, you can move your head from one side to another. You have started grasping at my hair this month as well as holding things tightly like the little stuffed animal on your pacifier. It’s so sweet.
Visitors: Little baby Martin was born this month and we had our first play date. You also got to meet sweet Kiel and Hayden who is due with baby Statham in November!
