1 Month

We had Aubrey's 1 month appointment on Tuesday. I assumed going into the appointment A's weight was in the 7 pound range, but the little porker played catch up and weighed in at 8 pounds 3 ounces. I really should have seen that coming with her eating sometimes every hour.

She did gain more than the pediatrician had expected to see, but he was very pleased. Her birth weight ( 6 pounds 2 ounces) put her in the 15th percentile for weight, but she dropped off the growth chart in the first 2 weeks. She is now back on her growth curve at 15th percentile. So it'll be interesting to see what the next month will bring.

She still appears a bit jaundice, but the pediatrician says it just breastmilk jaundice this time.  Liam has it too.  Breastmilk jaundice is harmless and will go away with her improvement in eating, the yellow effect just lingers.

Aubrey's sleep habits leave something to be desired.  She is inconsistent, sometimes waking every hour to eat, sometimes giving us a nice 3 hour stretch.  We have a pack and play set up in our room for her to sleep in, which she has yet to do.  I try to lay her in the pack and play, but she doesn't last there longer than 10 minutes.  She prefers to sleep on my chest or we put her on the boppy pillow next to our heads. 

Her preference would be to sleep on her tummy, which I let her do during the day when I can watch, but we are trying not to let her do that at night.  The pediatrician says her sleep troubles most likely relate to the gas pain she is feeling.  But we have some medicine so hopefully that will relieve some of the pain.
