Can not believe our little bundle is already 3 months! He is an absolute joy...smiles all the time now and even gives us a little giggle! He's a little guy...long and lean! He's got his daddy's long legs, long fingers and long toes for sure. :) He continues to love being outside...one of his favorite things to do is to be rocked on the warm back porch while brother & sister play in the yard. Such a perfect place for a nice warm fall nap! He went to the church nursery for the first time and charmed all the sweet ladies! He doesn't sit in his carrier long before he is snatched up and snuggled tight! I put him in during the middle hour and then he comes with me to service. I love that sweet alone time with him...nothing in the world as sweet as worshipping and snuggling a new baby! :) his little routine has pretty much stayed the same. He's getting more into an easy rythym...eat, awake, sleep and repeats every 2.5 - 3 hours. At the first peep of a tired cry, we Swaddle him and stick in the swim and he's konked!
He is still a little fella...so our pediatrician suggested meeting with the lactation specialist. She actually found that he has been slightly tongue tied. He's been nursing and doing fine but she said he's probat not been as efficient as possible. So, we made an ENT appointment and had the tissue clipped. He did great...he was sore and wanted extra TalC for a day but after that he was fine. I'm still nursing every 2.5-3 hours but I'm also pumping after each daytime feed and offering him an additional ounce in the bottle. We are trying to get his weight up...
Funny tho cause I checked back to Bella's blog entries and their growth patterns are identical...slow gain but always gaining.
So, I'm being persistent and diligent with doing all I can to give him as much milk as possible! And we are praying the tongue clipping along with extra calories will give him the boost he needs!
