I don't have one month stats for Kinsley because she didn't have an appointment this month- but here are some other stats for you.
weight: 7lbs 8.5oz
head: 12 3/4 in
ONE WEEK STATS:
weight: 7lbs 2oz (25%)
height: 20.5 in (75%) ... yes, this is shorter than her birth stats: according to the nurse babies tend to shrink in length once their heads round out and aren't cone shaped from being in the canal during labor. I just wouldn't have guessed it would be THAT different!
head circ.: 13 in (10%)
TWO WEEK STATS are:
weight: 7lbs 9.6oz (above her birth weight!!!) (25%)
height: 20.5 inches (75%)
head: 13.5 in (25%)
Kinsley at one month:
-still has her hair!!! :) I'm praying those beautiful locks don't all fall out!
-wears NB clothes and is squeezing into her NB diapers... we should proabably move her into size 1 diapers, but I can't let the remaining NB diapers go to waste!
-nurses 7-8 times a day every 2.5-3 hours
-must be an efficient eater because she NEVER eats more than 6-8 minutes. It's RARE that she will nurse from the second side at a feeding. She always pops off after 4 minutes of eating and I struggle to get her to latch back on for another 2-4 minutes. Of course, this bothers me, but I keep reminding myself that she is obviously growing because her clothes are getting tighter and she has way more wet and dirty diapers than the books say she should! Now if I could just be okay with her eating habits and stop spending another 20-30 minutes trying to force her to eat!
-sleeps a good majority of the day, but does have more wake times than Avery did at this point.
-goes 3.5-4.5 hours between feedings at night
-started babywise at 3 weeks, but it is MUCH harder to accomplish when my attention is also on a 20 month old.
-has great neck strength and can hold her head up really well
-hates tummy time... she lasts about 2-3 minutes before the screaming begins
-loves to be held up over our shoulder as opposed to the cradle position.
-when she is crying we have discovered the best way to console her is by walking around. If we stop for even a minute she starts to cry again-- this is NOT COOL! We are really trying to break this before it gets any worse!
-still sleeps in the pack n play in our room and probably will until she is sleeping through the night. I don't want Avery's awesome sleep habits ruined!
-seems to really enjoy bath time
-eyes have changed from that dark grey newborn color to a beautiful blue.
-has the most ear piercing cry I have ever heard.
