My sweet little Henrik is one month old today! I cannot believe how fast this is going already. 2 under 2 has definitely had its challenges and will continue to, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! I cannot imagine life without these precious littles and I am so grateful to God every day. Being a Mama is what I was made for 🙂
Henrik is getting more social, he will coo when he is happy, or gets a kiss from mom or dad, or just sees us. It’s pretty cute!
He’s sleeping pretty well, as of last night! Lately he was waking up every couple hours, but he’s been fighting a little cold and couldn’t breathe too well, poor thing 🙁 But last night he didn’t wake up until 3am, then 6am and then 8am! So this mama is feeling pretty good, let’s just hope this sticks for a while!!
Sample schedule at 1 month
8am wake and eat
9:30 down for a nap
10:30 wake and eat
11:40 down for a nap
1:00 wake and eat
2:00 down for a nap
4:30 wake and eat
5:30 down for a nap
7:00 wake and eat
8:30 down for bed
10:30 “dream feed” (eat and back to sleep)
3am let him wake me up to eat
6am he wakes again to eat and goes back to sleep until 8am
Hoping those 6am and 8am feedings will merge into one 7ish am pretty soon!
If you have are having a baby soon or have one already, I highly recommend getting the book “On Becoming Baby Wise”! It promotes an “eat, wake, sleep” routine and should get your little one to be sleeping through the night by 8-10 weeks! It worked with Parks and is on its way to working with Henrik too 🙂
We are SO in love with this little cutie <3 Happy Sunday!
