Mia: 3 Month Update


Height/Weight: Thanks to all the breastmilk she receives, Mia has grown exponentially! As of her last weight visit, she's 12 lbs 15 oz and is 25" long! I can't believe how much my little love bug has grown in such a short span!

Sleeping: Mia's naps are still off the wall... At the first sign of tiredness, I try to get her down for a nap. It's a good 10-15 minute struggle. Plus, if I try to place her in her bassinet, she'll wake up within 15 minutes (swaddled or not, it's the same!)... and she's SO cranky! The only way she naps until satiated is if it's in my, or someone else's, arms. I need a better strategy! On the other hand, nighttime sleeping has been a dream! She goes down at 9, dream feeds at 10:30/11 and 4:30/5, then goes back to sleep until 7/8.

Social: Mia Bear is extremely receptive to those around her. She stares at Kuro, Otie and Zorro when they walk by. She even listens and bobbles her head when hearing her grandparents or daddy talk. She loves to coo as well! She's recently started entertaining herself by babbling and playing with her fingers. It's so funny!

Likes: Mia LOVES her pacifiers... LOVES them!, sucking on her hands/gagging herself (ugh!), singing and story time with mommy, talking with her grandparents, staring at daddy, kicking any and everything she can.

Dislikes: This little girl HATES being put down for a nap, being startled, being cradled in one's arms, lying down a certain way, being left alone for more than 5 minutes... She kinda doesn't like most things. She's a very particular baby! She WILL let you know if she doesn't like what you're doing.

Crying: I would say Mia cries for 40% of our day. My parents tell me that Mia cries so much more than I ever did.

Feeding: She still nurses on one breast at a time for 5-10 minutes. It's hard to imagine she gains weight so well with such little feeds, but she does!

Clothes: Mia is currently sporting size 6 months clothing! She wears some 6-9 months, but 6 months fits her perfectly at the moment. I can't believe how big she is! She's is in between sizes for diapers. In 2s, she has far-reaching poop explosions and in 3s, she... just looks so dang weird!

Postpartum: I'm nearly completely over my postpartum issues. Things are slowly coming together and I can't be happier about that.
