Stats: We were at the doctor for Janie on Friday so I asked if we could weigh Asa. He was 13lbs, 10oz with clothes on. He feels like a chunk to me but I guess not. He has lost his chicken legs but we can’t call him thunder thighs just yet.
Likes: He likes his putting things in his mouth, especially his fingers. He starting to play with toys now and loves when people talk to him.
Dislikes: He still startles very easily so he is not a fan of loud noises and people. He is not much into the pacifier anymore. He really only takes it when he’s tired.
Eating: Nursing every 3 hours during the day and most nights. The Baby Whisperer says to move to a 4 hour schedule at 4 months but I didn’t since he doesn’t sleep through the night. I don’t know if moving to a 4 hour schedule would get him used to lasting longer. I don’t even know if he would make it that long. I’m open to advice or suggestions.
Sleeping: Asa does great with going to sleep, its staying asleep at night that’s the problem. He’s been waking every 2 – 3 hours all night. I try not to nurse him every time but sometimes I have to because he is so mad. He is a good napper and takes three one – two hour naps a day.
Milestones: He is very close to sitting up. He rolls to him tummy for sleeping most nights (I think this may be one of the sleep issues because he can’t roll back over). I think he may also be teething. He drools non stop and chews on his fingers (this too could be a contributing factor to the sleep issues).
Overall, Asa is a very happy baby! He loves to laugh and is pretty easy going most of the time.
