My tiny newborn isn't so tiny anymore and he is defiantly not a newborn. They grow far too quickly! Before I know it he will be 6 months and it will be Christmas.
He is now having 5oz bottles every 3-4 hours. He is wearing 3-6m clothes and weighs around 16lb. I say around because we have only weighed him on our scales. This seems about right as he is a chunky butt. Paige was always the same and was actually very close to 16lb at 3 months also. It seems we make chunky babies!
He is finally on a little schedule which is lovely. I always like to follow babies lead when it comes to routines during the day as I think they know what they need. He takes 3 naps a day at 9am, 1pm and 4pm. These times are more or less the same everyday but can vary depending on our night. Sleep has been a little up and down this week. I think he's just had a little growth spurt so was waking a couple of hours earlier than normal for an extra feed.
He doesn't always sleep in the car anymore like he used to. Sometimes he will just coo and talk to himself. You still have to work pretty hard for a smile but little things are always guaranteed to make him smile. We are trying so hard to make him giggle and he is getting so close. The only things he properly giggles so far are in his sleep. I remember Paige first giggling in her sleep and it wasn't long before she did them as a reaction to us. I can't wait!
He is more interested in toys now and loves grabbing things including my hair which is lovely, haha! His favourite toys are rattles and teethers. He has discovered Sophie the Giraffe and the Nuby teether. They are his favourite.
My big 3 month old!
