I’m really late on this one. Alana will be four months in a week!
Alana: 3 Month Update
This month consisted of lot’s more smiles, night wakings and me going back to work!
Height: Not sure. I did not measure her!.
Weight: I’m not positive but I would bet around from 13.5 -14 pounds
Likes: She loves smiling, sucking on her hands and having us make funny noises.
Dislikes: She’s not a huge fan of car rides or being overtired. Naps are still up there on her dislikes. She fights almost EVERY SINGLE NAP.
Firsts: First time away from Mommy for a full day and first time home with Daddy for a full day. We had a few date nights and had a my mom, sister or sister in law watch her for a few hours.
Sleep: We had a few sleep through the nights…like after her shots but that’s about it. She seems to sleep worse now then she did her during her second month! She is up anywhere from 1-3 times a night! She is now full time in the Rock -n-Play for naps and night sleep. She naps anywhere from 3-5 times a day. Typically is ready to go down by 7:3opm and we wake her at 6:15am.
Eating: She is still eating at about every 2-3 hours. She got much better at the bottle the closer she got to me going back to work. She drinks about 3.5-4 oz bottles while I am away.
Diapers: We have moved on to size twos and but totally lost count! I would say we went through around 150. We are using size 3s for nights.
Clothes: She is in 3-6 month clothes and I had to go out to buy some long sleeved onesies. All we had was lot’s of short sleeved ones.
Coen turned 3 months on Sunday! I definitely feel like this past month went by the fastest. I am not sure if it was because of the holidays or the anticipation of getting back to work but my head is still spinning. His personality is really starting to shine through. He is such a happy baby. He loves smiling and has even thrown in a few giggles here and there. He is awake a lot more and much more aware of his surroundings. He has lost most of his hair and has this rat tail thing going on. It is quite the look.
Height: 25-26 inches maybe? I haven’t measured him recently.
Weight: I’m not positive but I would bet anywhere from 14-14.5 pounds
Likes: The floor mat, kicking objects and still being cranky most nights! He loves smiling and having us make funny noises. I play squishy face where I squeeze his big cheeks and he always laughs after it. He has really been into sucking on his hands this month too.
Dislikes: Tummy time, tummy time, tummy time. He really is not a fan of it and would much rather be sitting up or on his back.
Sleep: We got our first sleep through the night. He went to bed at 8:30 and I actually woke to feed him at 6:30am so I could head to the gym! He hasn’t slept this long again and on occasion he is sleeping through the night till about 4 or 5. Right now nighttime routine is feed, change, daddy sings and rocks him and then bed. Bedtime is about 8:30 and this works for us because I will hit the sack at the same time so I can get a decent nights rest.
Eating: He is still eating at about every 2-3 hours. He used to be happy with only taking one side per feeding but now that he is bigger I think he needs more so he will nurse from both sides. While at day care he is taking about 4-5 3.5oz bottles of breast milk. I was a little nervous about overfeeding while at day care so she has cut down to about 4 bottles and he is perfectly content with that.
Diapers: We have moved on to size twos and going through a lot less diapers and wipes. We went through 198ish diapers. I’ve really slacked this month with keeping track!
Clothes: He is in 3-6 month clothes and I don’t see him staying in these too long which is sad because I had some cute stuff he may never wear. They are for the warmer weather and I doubt they will fit come April or May.
