4 Months

Weight: 15.12 lbs 

Height: 24 inches

Sleeping Habits: Things are slowly starting to improve as we inch out of the four month sleep regression, which started a few weeks ago for us.  She'll go to sleep in her crib, on her tummy unswaddled around 7:30.  She wakes up around 4:00 to eat, which is brutal for me because I'm up for the day at around 5:30.  Then back down until 7:30.  I'll take it.  I'd prefer her letting me sleep, but beggars can't be choosers and she's just coming off a kick where she would wake up 3 times a night and be up for an hour so I'm happy.  Her naps range from 30-60 minutes in her crib.  If we let her sleep on us, I can get up to 3 hours.  It's a good thing my bladder is big!

Eating Habits: We still EBF and she takes bottles of pumped milk when I'm at work.  She eats every 2-3 hours.  She'll take 4 ounces in a bottle.  

Milestones: I don't think anything.  

Best Thing This Month: Getting a bit more sleep thankfully and I love her big smile when I come home from work.  

Challenges This Month: Going back to work has been an issue.  I'm trying to find my groove but I'm feeling spread way too thin.  There's just not enough of me!

Looking Forward To: It's Fall and I can't wait to take both of my littles pumpkin and apple picking!
