He sleeps best on his stomach on my chest. This is how he falls asleep most nights. He sleeps swaddled in his bassinet in our bedroom still. He sleeps with his NICU frog on his belly. He wakes once a night to eat, usually around 3 or 4am. We are usually up for an hour and a half from the time he wakes up to the time he goes back down. This includes: nursing, changing his diaper, and snuggling on the couch until he falls back asleep. He typically takes one or two longer naps during the day but some days he takes short cat naps all day. He gets very cranky if he’s tired, just like his mama!
I am very proud to say that he is still 100% breastfed. He sometimes nurses great and other times I would be surprised that he got any milk out but he seems satisfied. He likes to pop on and off. He sometimes only eats on one side and other times, he takes both.
He typically has just one major poop a day. Once in awhile he will have some small ones as well. Unfortunately, the time of this blow-out varies so we aren’t always prepared!! I am sad to say he has been wearing mostly disposable diapers lately. I am trying to get him back into cloth though – which is becoming easier now that he’s growing and fits better into his one size diapers. We quickly run out of our four newborn fitteds!
He smiles often, we love it! He also coos. Sometimes it sounds like he’s laughing, even though he’s not. Sometimes he gets VERY excited, it’s so cute! And I certainly don’t want to jinx anything but he seems to have outgrown his “fussy time.” Whew!
This past month we celebrated
He goes in for his two month appointment tomorrow (actually, both boys do!) so I will be sure to update about how that goes then.
Here are some pictures from this past month:
