Elli's month one update

Still playing catch-up, here's Elliot's first month update. I love my one month old baby girl!

Elli at 1 month

Weight/Height:  9lbs, 21.5”

Hair & Eyes: Her hair has been getting lighter since birth, it’s now a medium brown color. Eyes have stayed the same grey/blue, sometimes they look purple.

Diapers: We started with Pampers Swaddlers in newborn. Since then we’ve mostly used Kirkland 1/2 diapers, but they were sometimes leaky (not enough leg chub) so we’ve done Target and Walmart brand size 1s as well. This month we’ve started using cloth more often, prefolds with Thirsties due snap wraps in size 1 mostly, but we also have 5 newborn AIO hand-me-downs.

Some newborn, but mostly 0-3. The first thing she grew out of was the newborn sleeper that Daddy bought the day we went home from the hospital.

Elli is still eating like a champ, she eats on demand and so it’s still usually every 2-3 hours. Toward the end of the month it’s spaced out further, especially at night.

Elli will sometimes sleep through the night, usually about 9-5 (I think 8 hours counts as through the night), but more often she sleeps for a 4-5 hour stretch and then eats before sleeping for another 3-4 hours.

Milestones:  In the first month E got a diaper rash and we started taking her in the shower with us. She had only had two sink baths, but the shower proved to be a lot easier. Sleeping through the night is a huge help to me when she does it, but we’re getting used to waking once a night and it’s ok. Elli got to go to her first wedding (my oldest brother’s) in a pretty dress and Daddy gave her a bottle. She slurped it down and promptly spit some of the milk back up.
