Weight: At Nate’s 8 week update he weighed 10lbs 13oz, what a chunk! I am so pleased that after his 6 week growth spurt we have really come on in strides with breastfeeding I am so happy we stuck it out!
Sleeping: Nathanael is such a good baby when it comes to night time, he knows day from night really well which we are so thankful for! He has started sleeping longer stretches at night now we have managed 5hrs! of course no one tells you how long he tells you he wants to feed for to achieve this so I am letting breastfeeding mummys out there know its a 3hr dance of on again off again stick with it there is a reward for you! As Nate now knows day from night he is now awake for large parts of the day with a 2hr nap usually around lunchtime but we just roll with what he wants to go with. I dont want to mess around with his routine as he is so good at sleeping at night plus as he is awake we get to play and learn together.
Nappies: Nathanel is still in size 1 nappies but we have upgraded to using our Pampers stash I talked about in his One Month Update. No leaks this month!
Clothes: Nate has now moved up in clothes size and oficially 0-3 without looking too big. I think he is quite a long, lean baby which I am told most breastfed babies are so he looks like he fits the length but he has quite a bit of material in the middle.
Things Nate likes to do: Nathanael has discovered so much this month its incredible. He loves following Mummy and Daddys voice and smiles when we arrive! He adores music a lovely thing for his Dad being a muscian. His favourite toy is a musical monkey that his Nanna bought him for Christmas he is enthralled by it and reaches to touch it. Nate has learnt to blow bubbles sort of and he finds this great fun. He loves to communicate in his own special way he can squeal letters of the alphabet like A, E, O, U and we have had some G’s thrown in the mix too!
These past two months have been amazing for our family Nathanael is such a joy I cant wait to see what next month brings although time seems to be going so fast!
