Age: 1 Month
Stats: 9lb 6oz (34 percentile), dome 37.5cm (55 percentile), 22″ (71 percentile)
Clothes/Size: Brandon is still in Newborn sizes but he’s getting too long for them even though they fit everywhere else. The 0-3 month clothes are pretty big on him. I put him in sacks that are open at the bottom most days and at night he gets swaddled.
Favorite Foods: Brandon is still getting milk mixed with formula as I can’t satisfy him on milk alone. I guess it’s his favorite, he doesn’t have a choice at the moment!
Diaper size: We ran out of Newborn diapers so tried out size 1 which are huge. I may go buy one more package of newborns to get us over the hump.
How much am I eating: He gets about 1oz formula (Enfamil or Similac Supplement) with 2-3oz of milk which I pump. During the day he’s been snacking on 1-2oz instead of 3-4oz at a time which makes planning very difficult.
Mama’s weight: I’m back in all my pre-pregnancy clothes. Weight is about 3lb higher than I was originally just need to work on getting back into shape which we’re working on!
Words: If crying is words…
Activities: Brandon is pretty miserable most of the time unless he’s full or being held or sleeping. We have been doing tummy time which has gotten better and he likes his bouncer most of the time.
Sleep: Brandon sleeps on and off all day and usually very well at night. He wakes up between once and twice at night and goes right back to sleep after he eats.
Favorite Things: Bottle. All he wants is that bottle and to be moving.
Signature Moves: No signature moves just yet.
Mom’s Proudest Moment: Mommy is glad to finally getting into the swing of things and learning the needs of our little guy.
Dad’s Proudest Moment: Daddy was most proud the two nights Brandon slept five hours straight! Lets make that a recurring habit baby boy!
