My Baby and Body - One Month

Jul 17, 2012

Baby Update

Maddox is doing great! There are a lot of different opinions on where babies should sleep at night, but when it comes down to it everyone seems to agree on, "do what works for you". So Maddox ended up spending most of the nights during his first month in bed with us. It was easier for feedings, easier for me to tell when he was awake or sleeping. He is a very noisy sleeper spending most of the time grunting or making little squeaky noises. Its super cute, but also keeps me up at night. We usually feed between 9-10pm, he wakes around 2 and then not again until 6 for feedings so we are both getting 8 hours of sleep at night!

We will be starting to move him to his crib this week and using the sleep sheep to get him to stay asleep.

I can definitely say he is gaining weight! At his two week appointment he had gained all his birth weight back plus just over half a pound! He was just over 8.5 lbs.

He is really strong, and has been able to hold his head up for two weeks. His legs are also getting strong and he likes to be on them standing and jumping. He has been practicing smiles and laughing in his sleep and I cant wait until he responds to us with his first little giggle!

My Update

I am feeling absolutely amazing! My stitches are almost all out and my swelling and bruising is definitely gone. I still get sore when I have been on my feet all day, but its nothing a little tylenol and aspirin won't get rid of!

Like I said before I am getting a good sleep at night even if I do take a nap in the afternoon with him sometimes.

My doctor appointment is Aug 8 and will be discussing exercise, birth control and more nutrition.

Weight: 151lbs
