One Month Old - September 15, 2010

Nathaniel is one month old already!


It's hard to believe, and time is slipping by.  At one month, Nate weighs 7 pounds 12 ounces, is 21.75 inches, wears newborn clothing and newborn diapers.   Nate is such a sweet baby.  He loves to snuggle and only really cries if he is hungry or mad that his diaper is off (he doesn't like getting cold).  He is eating like a champ--roughly 2.5 ounces at each feeding.  Unfortunately, Nate isn't the best at nursing--since he was early, this skill wasn't as strong initially--so I am pumping and we primarily give him bottles with a few nursing sessions during the day.  He is exclusively breastfed though, which is what is most important.  Nate eats about every 2 to 2.5 hours; we are hoping he starts transitioning to every 3 hours now that he is taking in a full feeding (it took a few weeks to work up to this since his little tummy was so small).  He is starting to have more awake time and his schedule is becoming more consistent.  Overall, our little boy is doing great and growing tons.

Nate's done a lot in his first month.  Met new friends.
