Stats: 8lbs, 14oz and 21.5 inches. Asa took a full 6 weeks to get back to birth weight. But once we started Zantac for reflux, he started to really gain.
Likes: Nursing, being swaddled, learning to like naps
Dislikes: Holidays. He cried most the day on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Then ended up in the ER on New Years Eve with a fever. Holidays only come around so often and he doesn’t hate his car seat anymore so that’s good news!
Eating: Asa nurses every 3, sometimes 2, hours during the day. He eats every 3 – 4 hours (5 hours a handful of times) at night.
Sleeping: He has established a bedtime of around 8pm. I wake him for a dream feed around 10 or 11. So far it’s not carrying him through the night but he’s been sick so I hope we will get there soon. He is doing better about napping during the day. It’s not a fight as much as it used to be.
Asa had 12 doctor and 2 emergency room visits in his two months of life outside the womb. Talk about a rough start! He went from slow to gain weight to being diagnosed with reflux to getting bronchiolitis and RSV. Here’s to a healthy 2016!
