Weight: 12 lbs 6 oz (1 month weight : 10lbs 0oz)
Height: 23.5 inches (1 month height : 22 in)
Head: 15.5 inches (1 month head circumference : 15 in)
Eat: Bridger is still exclusively breastfeeding and is still eating like a champ and growing too! He is in the 54th% for weight, so he isn't a tank... Yet :)
He is really long (87th%) so his weight is well distributed and he doesn't have any baby rolls. Although, his sweet little cheekies are getting fuller not to mention his adorable double chin :)
He nurses about every 3 hours during the day and after he goes to bed he eats about twice, which means he eats a total of 8 times a day.
He still grunts and snorts and slurps.... All things that might be considered bad manners when he is older.. But for now I wouldn't have it any other way!
Sleep: Little Bridger takes two naps a day, both lasting about 2-3 hours! (I know... I'm a lucky momma!) Dad and I have established a nighttime routine, which has made his bedtime pretty easy!
Between 7-8 he takes a bath (sometimes alone, sometimes with momma and dad) then he gets jammies on and nurses in the rocker while dad reads a few books aloud.
He is asleep by 9 and then doesn't wake up until about 1 or 2am.
Then I'll nurse him and he sleeps until about 4 or 5am.
Then I'll nurse him and he will sleep until 7am.
So, as you can see, with around 9 hours of sleep baby and momma are pretty well rested!
Favorites: Bridger still loves nursing, kisses, being outside, napping on your chest, and conversations with his momma in the morning and with his daddy at nighttime. He is getting really good at telling stories! Some of his new favorites this month are cuddles in his moby wrap, lying on his play mat, going for walks in his stroller - he absolutely loves his walks, bath time, riding on the 4wheeler and sitting in his bumbo. He is toying with the idea of liking his swing, but it comes and goes :). He loves to sit up so that he can look around at everything. His most favorite time of the day is morning time - between the hours of 5-11am he is sooooo happy :) His favorite toy is a little Sophie the giraffe chew toy. Not the real Sophie, but a little miniature one that he can hold and sometimes get to his mouth. His favorite jammies are his swaddle sacks. He loves to be swaddled at night time.
Dislikes: Bridger still doesn't like sitting in a wet or dirty diaper nor does he like getting clothes on or off. This month he decided he doesn't like the "aftermath of the afterbath" as we call it. He loves his baths, but he doesn't like getting out of them. He cries the moment he gets into his towel, all through getting his diaper and jammies on, and finally settles down for his last nursing of the day. He also doesn't like being in his car seat if it is sitting still.
