I can’t believe it has already been a month since our little guy has arrived. Time is flying and it makes me sad to think that I have less than 8 weeks left till I have to go back to work. Coen has changed so much this past month.
From his first few minutes in this world……
to One Month Old!
He has been growing like a weed! At our 3.5 week appointment he was:
Height: 21 inches (up 2 inches)
Weight: 10lbs (up 2.5 lbs from birth weight)
Likes: Cuddling, sleeping on my chest, staring into our eyes, his swing, eating!
Dislikes: Diaper Changes, Bathes and changing clothes! He also seems ticklish and doesn’t like his tummy rubbed.
Sleep: The first week or two he was only up a few hours a day and it felt like he was always asleep. Now he seems to be a lot more responsive and little more fussy….especially in the evening. For the most part he is a great sleeper. He never got confused with night and day. He is up anywhere from 2-3 times a night to eat and typically falls back asleep right after. Mommy goes to bed anywhere from 7:30-9ish right after she feeds him and Daddy stays awake for a couple more hours if he is fussy and then puts him down when he falls asleep. This way I get a decent first half of the night. He is starting to sleep longer stretches but typically I will get a 4 hour window during the first part of the night and then anywhere from 2-3 hour increments the rest of the night.
Eating: Coen obviously has no problem with eating since he packed on 2.5lbs since our 1 weeks appointment! He latched on right from the beginning and he nurses anywhere from 10-12 times a day. I am happy we have had no issues there.
Diapers: We went through approximately 363 diapers this month. Yes, I am psycho and keeping a spreadsheet of all the diapers boxes/packages we go through. He is in size one still and we had about a week that we were in newborns. He goes through so many a day!
Clothes: I put away his newborn clothes last week. It was sort of sad….I don’t want time to go too quickly. He is now in 0-3 or 3 month clothes. Most are a bit long for his arms and legs but fit around his waist. He has a big old pot belly.
Pics of a sleepy mommy (Please ignore the no makeup grungy look) I will do a separate one month post on me!
Coen is lookng a little cross eyed in this one. Sad to say he is losing his hair so he also has this male pattern baldness look!
