Time flies, my confinement is over and I can now do whatever I want! As of today, Jolie is already 1 month and 1 week old. I was supposed to blog about her progress last week but was too tired due to…
- My confinement helper left on the 31st of August.
- Izac started crying and whining for no particular reason, at random times of the day.
- Ivan gave me issues of scratching (Izac’s face mainly) and hitting people (his classmate, which I was later told by his teacher that it could be accidental).
- Both boys are sleeping later and later, I’m pratically going bonkers with 3 kids in the bedroom in the evenings… but I’m surviving.
Both issues pertaining my boys will be in another post. With regards to Jolie…
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ Weight: Approximately 4.00kgs (I measured by deducting our weight when I carried her and my weight)
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ Height: No idea
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ I think she can drink about 3 - 3.5 ounces of breast milk every 2.5 to 3 hours. I haven’t really measured her intake and time as I have not really started pumping fully during the day.
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ Drinks well from a bottle, so sometimes I leave EBM for her if I go out without bringing her along.
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ Able to lift her head for a short while when mommy burps her
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ Smiles and coos when someone talks to her
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ Able to track objects, hands and face when we move it left and right
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ She has started to settle down, and has really been much easier to handle than both her brothers when they were her age (I’m wondering if it’s because I’m more pro at this already!).
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ She is a good weight now… and increase of about 1.2kgs from birth.
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ I just love to smell her… everywhere, especially her tiny hands and feet.
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ She fusses on time every evening, around 7.30 pm until about 10.00pm… my guess is colic or tummy upset, so we normally give her cuddles rather than put her down in the cot.
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ She sleeps well at nights, only waking up to feed.
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ She hates having her hands tied in with the swaddle, so she always frees them very quickly and puts them next to her face.
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ We celebrated her full moon on the 30th of August by having dinner with family. And mommy gave out full moon packs to colleagues and some friends on the 2nd of September.
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ Took her to the barber and shaved her bald on the 2nd of September, just like her brothers.
Ã¢â„¢Â¥ I won’t need to bring her in for her 1st month jab like her brothers as there is a new 6-in-1 jab for her, and it’s due on the 2nd month.
