Little lady is now two months old! She is such a cutie and is really smiling a lot now. There was a lot of improvement on the nighttime sleep this past month. Naps on the other hand went down hill between 6-8 weeks. Those two weeks were extremely trying as Alana was super fussy. I remember Coen went through this and I think it was a mix between a wonder week and growth spurt.
Height: 22 3/4 inches
Weight: 13 lbs!
Likes: Singing, baths, talking, eating, cuddling and fighting naps!
Dislikes: Naps! Being overtired and her car seat….
Nighttime: Nights have significantly improved….. We went from 1-2 wakings a night that she was up 1-2 hours to only one waking and she falls back to sleep much easier. She is sleeping roughly from 9/10-3/3:30 and then once I feed her she sleeps until 6:30 when I wake her. Over the next few weeks I am going to have to adjust this to 6am so I can get her ready for me to leave for work.
Naps were tough this month. If she is not in a room that is dark with a sound machine she tends to stay up. She occasionally falls asleep in the swing. She takes anywhere from 4-6 naps ranging from 30 minutes to 2.5 hours. My attempt to get her on a schedule was an epic fail so I think I have given up. I remember this happening with Coen and he fell into his own schedule around 4 months.
Eating: Most of this month Alana was eating every 2 hours with an occasional 3 hours in between feedings. Toward the end of the month it seems like we are getting more 3 hour intervals. We still cluster feed at night and these are usually 4:30, 6:30 and then her last feeding is around 8:15. She has a witching hour most nights between 7-8 so some nights I do feed her earlier. This feeding may change if I start to put her down earlier.
Diapers: We are using up the last of size 1’s and are moving on to size 2. We use size 2 already at night because I usual don’t change her. We went through 180 diapers this month. I am using a lot less diapers with her than I did with Coen. Second baby maybe?
Clothes: She is still fitting in size 3 month clothes but I think she will be moving onto 6 month clothes fairly soon. Most of our clothes are hand me downs so the onesies are pretty well shrunken.
