Postpartum Update: 3 Months

Three Months

Three months! This has been quite a toughy mainly because we have been trying to sleep train for about a month now and it’s a bit hit or miss. Nights tend to be easier as it is quiet, dark and Heath is pretty tired but encouraging daytime napping on anything that doesn’t rock or move hasn’t been as successful. On a good night, he will wake up only once or twice for a feed. This hasn’t happened very often but I’m hopeful it will improve soon.

Heath has started to laugh a lot this month. Last month he was a little bit giggly but now he really responds if he finds something amusing. He is ticklish around his chin so he will laugh if you clean his neck with a muslin.

His fine motor skills have really developed too. He will reach and grab for his toys and shake them once he has gripped on to something. He can also move about on surfaces that he is lying on. Heath will use his legs to push himself about. This means that I can’t leave him on the sofa if he is awake. I don’t think it will be too long before he can crawl so I’m encouraging tummy time whenever he is in a good mood.

This month Heath is:

  • He loves his play gym and can spend about 30 minutes talking himself in the mirror and reaching for the toys.
  • Still in some 0-3 month clothes but generally in 3-6 months
  • Sleeping up to 5 1/2 hours at night before waking to feed
  • His eyes are still blue
  • He still has a bald patch at the back of his head

I haven’t had Heath weighed since his 6 week check. I will do this before the 4 month update and include that next time. Thanks for reading. Bx
