One Month Old Today!
Can you believe a month has gone by already?!? I can't....but it is great because each day gets a little easier and we are really settling into a routine now. First things first....here are her stats from her one month checkup:
Weight: 9 lbs, 9 oz- 69th percentile (on 2/8/11)
Height: 21.5 inches- 72nd percentile
Head circumference: 37.5 cm- 66th percentile
It was so comforting to hear that she was growing like a rock star and was eating well. So the breastfeeding is a success! Yay me :) We still give her a bottle of formula at night if she is fussy but the doctor says she doesn't really need it. As for sleeping, we are all getting much more rest lately which is awesome. After the 11 pm or midnight feeding, she will go down for 6 hours in her crib which is AMAZING! We even have to wake her in the mornings sometime b/c the doc says not to let her go more than 6 hours without feeding, although it is very tempting to let her go more because I think she would. So I think we have BabyWise to thank for that. So a few more weeks and we should be able to drop the 5 am feeding and let her sleep through the night! Lets cross our fingers that she keeps up the good work!
