– At one month old we were still living at the Blanco house, but on our way out.
– Harrison slept in his bassinet in our room, and slept through the night except for feedings.
– Due to breastfeeding and upkeep of the milk supply we woke him to feed every 4 hours.
– Harrison loved sleeping on Daddy’s chest from day one, and by month one he was already moving and pushing off of his chest with his strong legs.
– He seems to like the car, and fell asleep pretty easily while moving.
Two Months (July)
Three Months (August)
-Three months has been my favorite age.
-This boy is so active! Rolling over both ways and holding his head up so well. He is smiling and cooing so much more than before.
-He weight 10 lbs 10 oz. , and measured 23″ long at his 3 month check up.
There is so much STUFF involved when it comes to baby!
I plan to share the gear that we got lots of use out of. Thankfully, we are blessed with amazing family and friends who met many of our needs.
*Remember every mama and baby are different.
Baby Gear we LOVED during these stages:
1. Boppy, I used it for every breast feeding! Plus it doubles as a pillow for the baby to lay on, like in the first picture of this post. ( A dear friend gave us their old one, and we were gifted a new cover)
2. Medela breast pump. Even though I was with him the majority of the time. It was huge to be able to have a pump so that when I wanted a break someone else could feed him with breast milk. ( a dear friend let us borrow her old one, and we bought new tubing)
3. Snap N’ Go Stroller. You can simply put your car seat in the base of the stroller. This was perfect for doctors visits and trips to stores. (A great friend let us borrow this!)
4. Floor, play mat. I would recommend you get some sort of play mat to have ‘tummy time’ with your little one!
5. Ergo baby. We were gifted one, and H loved it during these early months. I’m not too sure if I would of gotten anything done around the house without it. I would recommend some sort of sling, or carrier.
6. Pack ‘N Play. If you are on the go and want to visit people or stay outside your home. You will need one of these! Also, some even have a built in bassinet and changer.
7. Diapers with the pee indicator stripe. In the beginning he wasn’t peeing very often, and they are so little. The diapers that let you know when they were wet were a lifesaver!
8. Nursing bras, tanks, and pads. If you are nursing you are going to need these things for as long as you decide to nurse!
