1 Month Old Recap:
Likes: Eating (LOVES eating), being cuddled, a good burp or gas passed, when you sing to her, when you rock her. Still loves pooping in a clean diaper. So far, she loves baths as well, but not getting out. She also seems to like her crib and sleeps well in it. Loves to be swaddled, but acts like she hates it and tries to break out of it. If she is upset though, we swaddle her & it helps calm her down.
Dislikes: Hiccups, loud sudden noises, people being in the room when she is awake & not holding her. Doesn't like when she wants to eat, but you instead give her a pacifier. Putting her in the car suddenly when she is awake makes her mad. You have to ease her into it. First you have to feed her, burp her & change her diaper. Then put her in the carseat while it is inside and rock her some in it. Have the car cooled off and then put her in it. And then just pray she doesn't cry and you hit all green lights. It upsets her to have trapped gas on her tummy (I'm going to go ahead & say that would be a dislike for anyone at any age).
Milestones: Took her first bottle. She took it like a champ (I didn't have much worry, baby girl likes to eat.)
Sleeping: Not on a consistent daytime sleeping schedule yet, but usually takes 1 long nap midday and several short naps throughout the day. She is sleeping good at night (most times), as long as she is swaddled. She sleeps in just a onesie and the miracle blanket. She usually gets 1 or 2 hands out or a leg out. It used to wake her up when she would do this, but now she seems to just go with it and continue sleeping. And thank goodness my going in & checking on her 10 times throughout the night doesn't seem to bother or wake her.
Eating: Hollon eats great, but it is afterwards that gives us a little trouble. Still figuring that out. She eats every 3 hours during the day. If she is sleeping, she will sometimes go 3.5 or 4 hours between meals. I feed her, her last feeding of the day sometime between 10:00-11:00. She gets up for a middle of the night feeding, usually between 1:00-3:00 and then her first feeding of the day is sometime between 5:00-7:00.
Nicknames: Pizza Face (Just kidding, but she does have a not-so-lovely case of baby acne. I had to photoshop it out of these pictures.)
Baby Products I'd Like to Invent: Baby tape that would keep a pacifier in a baby's mouth. Cry translator that would translate a baby's cries into words. Proactiv for Infants. Dry Shampoo for Infants. (Or maybe I just need to bath my child more)
