October Life w/ A Babe thread

Anyone else's baby fall asleep on the changing table--and then you just leave them there to sleep??!? The boys are at preschool right now. There's no way I'll move him and risk waking him up again. He can have his morning nap right where he is. He looks too cute and comfortable.

sounds cute

Kienan will fall asleep like that too but his stuffy nose wakes him 5 minutes later, so I race around for 5 minutes to do all the 2 handed chores

I will leave Booker to sleep WHEREVER he falls asleep! He especially likes to nap in the bouncy seat next to the running clothes dryer - good thing there is always diaper laundry to do! He will fall asleep on the changing table with the hairdryer going. Throw a blanket over him and call it a nap!

Nate outgrew his newborn stuff by 3 weeks old. His brothers also outgrew the newborn size by 2-4 weeks. We're in 3-6 month and even some 6-9 month clothes, and many medium sized diapers. Nate is getting LONG, just like his big brothers.

When comparing baby photos, he looks just like his big brother Ryan.
He's got cradle cap just like him too, but thank goodness no infant eczema this time!!

Will was always too big for newborn dipes, and he's just about to outgrow infant size prefolds. I need to order some regulars.

He can wear some of the bigger onesies, but never wore the true newborn (up to 10 lbs) type.

It's starting to hit me now that I quit my job and am not going back. Aaaahhh.. This new boss is much more demanding than anyone I've ever worked for!!

Yep, Elliot loves to sleep on his changing table! For some reason, that's his fav place, he'll sleep there, smiles there, coos there.

At 8-1/2 weeks, Elliot is also outgrowing his 0/3 month stuff. I've gotten out the 3/6 month stuff and it's still big, but I have a feeling it won't be long before he's outgrown that too. This little guy is growing more quickly than
ds1 did.

DD does the same thing! I always put her in the kitchen next to the dryer.

Oh yes. DD is fitting (nicely, I might add!) in to 3-6 month clothes. I put a bunch of stuff away in the grow-into drawer that was Carter's and said "3 months" on the tag. I assumed that meant 3-6 months, but nope. Oops. : So now she had all these cool clothes that hardly got to wear!

I am looking forward to getting things together to try and sell. No more babies for me, so dipes, clothes, everything is going when this one outgrows it!

DD was born at 8lbs 2 oz and at six weeks was 12lbs 12oz. Breastmilk rocks! At this rate she'll be in 12 months clothes by winter! lol

We must have also hit that six week height of fussiness mark. She's been harder to get (and keep) asleep in the past few days. Luckily she is still sleeping well at night, but during the day is frustrating.

Charlie will be out of newborn diapers any day now. I can't believe how long she's getting! We're moving tomorrow...whoever thought that moving with a newborn and a toddler would be easy compared to moving while pregnant was very, VERY wrong. I am in H E you know where!

We're still growing into nb clothes here. They still can't wear two piece outfits (overalls excluded) without the bottoms falling off, even with the cd bum. We had their pictures done yesterday and they both wore preemie outfits :

I've been having a lot of "gut pain" and finally went to the dr Fri and I have a 4 finger ab seperation and she's pretty sure an umbical hernia too I have an appmnt with a surgeon Thursday for a consult :
This really sucks, as if the c/s wasn't bad enough. I am actually in more pain now that I was pg, even with that big 'ol twin belly.

Liam is the biggest baby the midwives have had at 6 weeks- 14 pounds, 10 ounces, and he may have been even more because their scale was down 12 ounces the day before. He is outgrowing most of his 3-6 month stuff and into 6-12 months in most stuff.

he and my 2.5 year old wear the same size diaper- meds in cloth or size 3 in sposies.

I am so glad I only bought 6 newborn and 2 small diapers.

: Whoa! What did he weigh at birth?!?!

Way to go, mama!
post #15 of 101
He was 9 pounds, 10 ounces at birth. At 3 days, he weighed 9 pounds, 3 ounces. At 7 days, he weighed 9 pounds, 13 ounces. 2 weeks- 10 pounds, 5 ounces. At 4 weeks- 12 pounds, 14 ounces.

He's gaining great--you must have buttermilk!!

Will weighs 13 lbs, 14 oz at 4 weeks, but was 11 lb, 14 oz to start with.

I did the math (yeah, I'm THAT wierd) and he's got my little one beat! I'm so impressed with you . . .

You all are cracking me up. Ian is 8 wks old and was 7 lb 7 oz on Friday. He's just started growing into newborn size stuff. We still have to buy pampers newborn swaddlers as they are the only dipes that fit. The prefolds I have are big enough to lay over him as a light blanket. One day he will get big, but I've got a bunch of newborn and 0-3 mo size summer clothes that will never get worn because it's already getting cold here and he's too small for them. Maybe they'll fit this spring.
