You are three months old! I am just loving each little stage you enter. Do I miss that teeny tiny baby I brought home a few months ago? A little. But man, getting to see you grow into a little person is so much fun too.
Here’s what you’re doing at 3 months!
As of yesterday, you are 16.4 pounds…that’s in the 93rd percentile for your age! You’re staying right on your growth curve so far.
As best as I can tell (which isn’t perfect by any means), you’re 25.5 inches long now. That’s in the 95th percentile!
Perfectly in 6 month clothes now…they may even be getting slightly snug. You are wearing rompers and sleepers most of the time now, but it’s getting warm enough around here to bust out the onesies!
Size 2 diapers are perfect for daytime, but I think we might move to size 3 for nighttime soon. You’re going through slightly less this month, maybe 5ish a day.
I think you eat more often than you did when you were 2 months old? I don’t know how that’s possible. I’m probably feeding you at least every 2 hours during the day now…one big feeding as soon as you wake up each time and one smaller one right before I put you down for a nap each time. I’d estimate you eat 6-7 times during the day, but only once in the middle of the night now!
And it’s worth mentioning that nursing is going amazingly, better-than-I-ever-thought-it-would-be well. After a not so great experience with Emma Ramey, I don’t take it for granted for a second that I get to nurse you! You took to it pretty much immediately and we really haven’t had any trouble.
I really can’t complain. You usually take 1-2 good naps a day (one mid-morning, one around 1-2 in the afternoon) and then kind of cat nap in the evenings. We almost always have to hold or wear you during dinner, but you will sleep off and on. You’re usually down by 8-9 at night and sleep until at least 2-4 in the morning…not a bad sleep stretch for a 3 month old!
