Drew: 1 Month Old


February 15, 2016
Drew is 1 month old today! 
  • He weighed 11 pounds, 7 ounces before his bath this morning (Up 2 lbs, 1 oz since birth)
  • 23 inches long! 
  • 0-3 month clothes (for the length), but can still wear a few newborn sleepers
  • Size 1 diaper at around 3 weeks
  • Sleeping 5-6 hours at night, waking up only once.   
  • Slept 9:30-5am at 4 weeks, 2 days. 
  • Is breastfeeding really well!  He eats every 2 hours during the day. 
  • Currently spitting up a lot after eating.  He is a very aggressive, fast eater.  I'm still trying to get adjusted to him sleeping longer at night, so I'm often engorged in the mornings.  So he's getting too much too fast. 
  • Umbilical cord fell off in 19 days
  • Just started loving bath time! He had diaper rash at first, because he pooped constantly.  That has cleared up, so it probably doesn't hurt to be in the water.  I have also started leaving the water running a little bit.  
  • His eyes are still blue with a pretty line around them.
  • Hair is TBD.   Looks really strawberry blonde (RED) in some lighting, and really light brown in others. 
  • Loves being in his car seat carrier.  If we have anywhere to go,  I will feed him right before we need to leave, put him in his carrier, and he will often last 3 hours! 
  • Since there's so much sickness going around (RSV, Flu etc.).  We don't take him out very often.  Chris is taking the girls to school in the mornings, but I am picking them up.  

Will update more when I get more time... for now, here are some pictures! :)
