True to form - 2nd child is getting things posted a lot more slowly than first child did. Ah well...
August turned 3 months old last Tuesday! As of a week before that he weighed in at 11lbs 3oz & is growing at his normal 25th percentile-ish rate. He suffers from really bad, painful reflux & that has been difficult & trying on all of us. He is now on a higher dosage of Zantac & that along with more "cluster-feedings" at night have kept the hours-on-end screaming sessions at bay - hopefuly it'll continue to get better.
He will only really sleep well if he's on his tummy - which of course is a major no-no these days. I admit, I let him sleep sometimes on his tummy just so we can get some rest. He's about a minute away from rolling over (both ways) so i feel pretty confident that he won't leave his head face down in the crib...but I still do worry about SIDS...The past few nights (last night withstanding) he did 5 hour blocks of sleeping - from 8:30 til 1:30am which was great. After that he doesn't sleep as good & I usually end up sleeping with him so that we can both get some rest. After 4am all bets are off. He's usually wide eyed (well, he's always wide-eyed!) & smiling at that godforsaken hour. Hopefully he'll start sleeping longer soon!
His smile is awesome. He crinkles up his nose & has a twinkle in his eye! I've seen it! I think once we get this reflux thing under control he's going to be a very happy, mellow & PATIENT baby.
