Mentally, I’m a little nervous about my new role as a working mom and wife. I know its a big role and I’m just praying my way through it. I am also doing much better as a mom now. I feel like I have found my groove with Finn. I know him sleeping has made a HUGE difference. Physically, I’m feeling ok. I am starting to wean off the pump. We never could nurse successfully and I am really over producing. So hopefully, this time next month I will be done. I have enough milk stored up for 1 1/2 months right now. If you have any tips for weaning, please email me.
Finn is eating 4 oz every 3 hours and 15-30 minutes.
At his last appointment 2 weeks ago he was 11 lbs and 10 oz. I think he is closer to 12 or 13 pounds now. He is getting heavy 🙂
Finn is sleeping much better now. He takes two or three 2 hour naps during the day. And as of 3 days ago he has been sleeping 6 hours at night! He goes down between 10:30-11:00 (depending on his last feeding) and he is sleeping til 4:30-5:00. I’m gonna start trying to get him sleeping to 7:00 over the next few weeks.
His wake time has been so much fun over the last few weeks. He is awake anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half. He can see and follow objects now. So we play with the rattle, light up toys, and stuffed animals. He smiles a lot its very cute!
He is starting to fit in the 0-3 month size now. They are still a little big but the newborn clothes definitely do not fit anymore. I can’t get them over his head, haha!
Finn started smiling at me this past month. He smiles when I talk to him. He also knows my voice. Last week, Greg was holding him and I started talking he whipped his head around to look at me. It was so adorable! And made me tear up for sure!
