2 months old

What we thought was a underdeveloped tear duct, ended up being a hemangioma.  Read the post here.  He may just have had his first little cold too.  Poor guy!

He's long and 10lbs 14oz and 23inches long!  Still the 15th percentile in weight and 50th percentile in length.  Consistency.

He was getting so much better at naps during the day.  Now that he started daycare, he's not sleeping as much.  Hopefully, he'll get adjusted to all the different noises soon and start to get some more sleep.  The past few nights when we got home, he was OUT.  He's been so tired.
The first cycle in the night is usually between 3-5 hours and then from then until morning, it's every 2-3 hours.  I'm not even sure he wants to eat during those times either because he only eats for about 10 minutes or so (much shorter time than normal).  I think the gas is waking him up... maybe?  Any advice in this area would be great!
He's all over the place in clothes.  From newborn (a little tighter) to 3 months (a little bigger)...
I packed a lot of the newborn clothes up though to give away to a friend. I can't believe we don't have a newborn anymore!
I tried to use up all the rest of the newborn diapers we had, but he officially moved up to the size 1 diapers now!  Last week he had 2 major blowouts at daycare (one of them was so bad, Miss Barbara had to go home on her lunch break and change her clothes!), so I guess that was a hint to move him on up.


He eats every 3 hours... a little longer in between at daycare.
He seemed to go through a growth spurt at about 6 weeks and ate every 2 to 2-1/2 hours.

being swaddled with his arms... at least he doesn't think he likes it.  Once he's asleep... he likes it (and so do we) ;)
He's still battling some gas issues... and doesn't like it either.  Who likes gas anyway?

They make infant probiotics that could help with the gas. I give my son a quarter of a teaspoon once a day in his bottle. They also make gas drops but I like the probiotics better.

Aw, my daughter is now 10.5 weeks and we started daycare two weeks ago. Your house sound exactly like ours - baby is OUT when we get home, sleeps well for the first few hours, then up every 2-3 until morning. Like Kaden, I'm not sure that Jordin is actually hungry during some of the feedings, but she is doing it for comfort. I tried ignoring her one night and she put herself right back to sleep!
we don't battle much gas, but, I've found that giving her gas drops as soon as we get home helps along with pumping her legs a few times. You could also try different bottles. I had tons of bottles from my first child but this baby hated them, of course!
Best of luck! He is so stinkin' cute!

I love his spikey hair! It reminds me of Connor when he was a baby. Sorry to hear about his eye-- hoping it goes away quickly!
