1 month baby update

I really am becoming pretty useless because this update is late as well (you'll be 7 weeks old when this post goes live!) but here's your 1 month update!

I really really don't want to jinx us but you're still sleeping like an absolute dream! Since 2 days old you have only woken up once each night, usually around 4 or 5am but this is slowly getting later and at 3 weeks old you slept through the night for the first time 10pm-6am and do this at least once a week - usually when its daddy's turn to get up in the night, little monkey! 
After early morning milk you happily go back to sleep in your crib for a few hours & we usually finally get up and dressed for the day at around 10am.
You tend to have about 4-5 naps during the day but you're definitely staying awake for longer now which is lovely.

At 4 weeks old you're having 4-5oz of milk every 3-4 hours. We tend to just let you have it when you're hungry rather than waiting exactly 3 hours but that does mean sometimes you're too tired for bedtime milk at 10pm and skip that one all together!
You still guzzle all your milk happily and rarely sick. Unfortunately you seem to get particularly windy at about 7pm - we like to call it the 7 o clock scream fest - because you scream & scream and nothing seems to help. It breaks my heart! Luckily it doesn't seem to last very long and you're quickly back to you're happy self but we've started giving you infacol before your afternoon & evening bottles.

We took you to be weighed at 4 weeks old exactly and you were 9lb 13oz - little chunk!

I'm sure you are starting to smile and it's not just wind anymore. You are just the cutest!!
You babble to yourself a lot, especially when we put you in your crib at bedtime. The whole time I've been typing this you've been chatting away to yourself. You've started pulling my hair which isn't fun and flap your arms around all the time, often punching poor Marley in the face or grabbing his fur.
You pretty much hold your head up by yourself now and hardly need any support.

Youre still pretty dinky and in your newborn clothes which I'm loving! I want you to be this small forever!!! We've tried 0-3 clothes a couple of times but they still swamp you. Still in size 1 nappies but I think when we run out of the packs we already have we'll move you up to size 2's now.
