So, this week this gorgeous dude turned 13 weeks and also 3 months old!
I took him to the weighing clinic and he now weighs 13lbs 7oz and is starting to grow out of his 0-3 months clothes. This makes me a little excited because all his cutest clothes seem to be in the 3-6 month range!
His naps aren’t too bad, although sometimes he has his afternoon nap too early in the afternoon meaning he gets a bit overtired in the late afternoon / early evening. This means sometimes has another afternoon nap, luckily so far this hasn’t affected his bedtime sleep. Today he had an hour nap in the morning and one this afternoon for over three and a half hours!
His nighttime sleeping is really not consistent, sometimes he will wake after 3 hours, sometimes he sleeps for 8 hours. I really don’t know what I can do about this, so if anyone has any suggestions, I will gladly take them! I’m hoping he will just gradually get into some sort of pattern.
We still put him to bed at about 7:30 in his own cot in his room and then when he wakes which can be anything from 10pm to 4am, I then feed him and put him back to sleep in the crib in our room so I guess he spends half the night in one bed and half in another.
His feeding is pretty consistent, he feeds every 3-4 hours. Now he is getting older, he is starting to be a bit more curious and gets distracted when he feeds, i sometimes have to take him upstairs to feed away from everyone else.
The joys of having a breastfed baby is the explosive nappies! Apparently this happens more with breastfed babies than with formula fed ones. At least every other day we get an explosive nappy which goes up his back, some have gone as far as his shoulder! I have even had to stop him wearing white as he pooes and stains them! Delightful baby!
