Let me tell you something. Three months goes by in a FLASH when you have a baby. Ok maybe not the first few weeks but after I learned how to sleep train Emersyn, it felt like time flew by for us!
It may sound silly but honestly I never knew I could love a baby as much as I love Emersyn. Even when she starts crying in the middle of the night and I only got 4 hours of sleep (in the beginning) I was always excited to see her face in the bassinet.
So let’s get started with some updates and some of my favorite motherhood items!
How many weeks is Emersyn?
She is currently 14 weeks, 4 days old!
How much is she weighing?
No clue right now, but we took her to her 2 month checkup and she was 10 lbs 15 oz in the 50th percentile. She no longer fits into 0-3 anything and we need to fit her in 3-6 pieces now (crying emoji)
How much is she eating?
Ok so she can definitely finish a 6 oz bottle! She is eating about 30 oz a day but has a little bit of reflux or it may be normal baby spit up. She was spitting up a lot at night in her bassinet so I was worried that she would choke. My pediatrician told me to use oatmeal formula in her bottle. When Emersyn was about 5-6 weeks old, we used 1 teaspoon in 1 whole bottle. We haven’t increased the oatmeal formula even though our pediatrician told us we could use 1 teaspoon per 1 oz. I thought that was overkill.
Are you breastfeeding or bottle feeding?
I’d love to do a whole blog post about that soon for you guys because it’s a story I think needs to be shared.
What is her schedule?
7am: Wake up, change, feeding, keep up until 8am
10am: Wake up, change, feeding, keep up until 11 am
1pm: Wake up, change, feeding, keep up until 2pm
4pm: Wake up, change, feeding, keep up until 5pm
6-7: Play time, bath time, reading time
7-30: Feed, keep her upright so she doesn’t spit up and then right to bed
10:30: Wake up to feed last feeding but we are trying to ween off of it
What items are you loving?
When she was little we were obsessed with the dockatot. Now she can’t fit into it because she’s too long! We love this play gym that we use at home and this mini play gym that I use in the office. She can’t live without these pacifiers (and honestly neither can we). At night we use this sleep sack to swaddle her from her using her arms to wake herself up. Also Jeff loves putting Emersyn into this when we feed her because he complains that his back always hurts him. Finally I love this swing for my office. It relaxes her and puts her to sleep so I can get stuff done in the office!
Where is she sleeping?
At nap time she sleeps in her crib if she’s home, her pack n play in my office (but rarely), her carseat which she loves, and the Halo Bassinet.
What are your favorite diapers?
Definitely the Pampers swaddlers for the day time and Pampers baby dry for night time. I love the wetness indicator! Also I just got a package of the Honest diapers and I’m obsessed with the cute prints!
What carseat/stroller do you use?
I use the Uppababy Mesa carseat with the matching Vista stroller in the color Loic (which is white). I absolutely love it and there is so much storage. It’s super easy to transfer the carseat from the stroller into the car. It also comes with a bassinet attachment, which Emersyn is almost too big for!
Jeff uses the Nuna stroller set which I also love. There is a ton of different features on the nuna that the Uppababy doesn’t have as far as the protection for the baby, but it is a lot bigger than the Uppababy. The Uppababy is the sleek sports car version of a stroller and the Nuna is the SUV of strollers.
Where do you shop for her?
Honestly in the beginning we got a lot of our items from Marshalls because they have so many great deals. Now we shop at Macys, Nordstrom, H&M, Baby Gap, Dillards and Old Navy.
