Kayla's 1 Month Update

Kayla is getting big! I can't believe that she'll be a month old tomorrow. We had her check-up today and everything was great. She is already 9 lbs 15 oz (she was 7 lbs 12.5 oz on 7/15) and 20.625 which translates to 75th percentile for weight and 10th percentile for height. J likes to round up so we're going with 10 lbs and 21 in. It looks like we have a petite chunk-a-lunk baby.

We go back on Thursday for a follow-up on breast feeding. She was never able to latch at the hospital so I've been pumping all this time. She's been able to breast feed since Friday but I'm still using a shield which I'd rather not. Our pediatrician is going to help us out during the appointment so I can potentially get rid of the shield and pump less and breast feed more.

What else has my baby been up to?
  • she's going to start wearing size 1 diapers as soon as our newborn ones are gone (we've had blowouts recently and it has gone all the way up her back)
  • feeding 4 oz (still no formula)
  • she's up a lot during the day now and eats every 2 to 3 hours and every 4 hours - sometimes longer at night (finally! and we love it)
  • wearing 3 month sized clothing
