We’ve reached another milestone, Naomi is officially one month old! We are so in love with this little lady, it’s amazing getting to watch her grow!
She’s just been through another growth spurt, so she was feeding and sleeping heaps lately. The cluster feedings definitely exhaust me as I try to keep up with her demands, but it never lasts longer than a few days, before we get back to regular feeds. We’ve definitely got into a rhythm with breastfeeding which is so good. We had lots of issues during the first two weeks, so I’m glad that things have settled.
Sleep still has it’s ups and downs, but this past week has been really good. She’s having shorter naps throughout the day, and having longer sleeps in the night. She sleeps between 2 and a half to 3 and a half hours at night, waking up in between for some feeds. She goes back down to sleep quite fast in between the feeds, so that I’m able to get back to sleep too. We’re hoping this sticks around for a while!
Naomi has periods where she’s quite alert, especially during the day. Her big blue eyes are often content searching the room. We read books to her, sing, do tummy time, and just spend time together. When we’re holding her close, her eyes do seem to focus directly on us now. She often turns her head towards me or Rory if she hears us going by, so it’s nice to see that she definitely recognizes us! As she gets older, it’ll be fun to see her as she begins to interact back with us.
That’s all for this update. Hope you guys are all doing well!
