Brooks Michael- One Month (9/29/16)

Our sweet Brooks Michael turned one month old on Sept. 29, 2016. The first month really did fly by so quickly. Here are some quick stats on our little man.

Weight- I suspect he is around 9+ pounds based on how much he is eating and how fast he is outgrowing his clothes. 

Eating- Right now he is exclusively breastfed but did have one bottle of pumped milk that Kristian gave to him. He chugged about 3oz of pumped milk. He eats every 2-3 hours but will go for a longer stretch at night. 

Sleep- He has been sleeping really well, when we first brought him home I had to wake him at night to eat, after his 2 week appointment when we saw that he had gained back all his weight plus some more the doctor said we no longer had to wake him at night. So now he goes to bed between 9-10pm and usually wakes on his own between 2-3am, eats then sleeps until around 6am. Sometimes he wakes sooner to eat again and his longest stretch was 9:30-4am. He typically takes 2 or 3 long naps during the day around 2-3 hours. He's sleeping in the rock n play at night and during the day he naps in his little lamb chair or while he's being held/carried in a wrap. 

Clothes- I'm still squeezing him into his newborn clothes which are getting tight already, the 0-3 and 3 month size fit better though are still a bit too big. 

Diapers- moved into size 1 a couple of weeks ago when we ran out of newborn size. I didn't want to buy a big box of those knowing he was going to grow out of them quickly.
