Catch up on my Pregnancy Journey, including my TTC story, pregnancy updates & birth announcement HERE.

Taylor James' 2 month Update

General...
Taylor is still doing well. He can be a bit of a grumpy baby sometimes but otherwise fine. He's getting so big, my little chunk! And I can see the developmental changes happening before my eyes. He's just amazing! He suffered with colic for a few weeks, but we cracked it early on with a formula change and those amazing Dr Brown's Bottles. He has a few minutes tummy time each day but gets grumpy after a while, his head control is getting really good though. He also spends a few minutes in his Bumbo seat too.

Height/Weight...
He weighed 12lb 13oz at 6 weeks, he's now 11 weeks and put on lots since then so no idea what he weighs now! :) I may make an appointment to go get his weighed this week.

Sizes...
He's in 3-6 clothes now my little chunk! Everyone pretty much bought us 3-6 clothes so its so nice seeing all the lovely bits on him. We've 3 huge boxes of 3-6 clothes to get through!

Feeding...
He's fully formula fed now, having 6-7oz every 3-4 hours. We started on SMA Gold, but it made him really constipated so we changed him over to Aptamil Comfort which helped loads with his colic and constipation. We've recently gone to Aptamil Number 1 and luckily his colic or constipation didn't return. So we're comfortable on that one now.

Sleeping...
At night time he only usually wakes once for a feed and goes straight back off. Some nights he sleeps through till about 6am which is lovely! :)
During the day he'll cap nap, or sleep longer if in the car or pushchair, he'll wake up as soon as we stop though!! 
He does have to be rocked off though, as he won't just fall asleep by himself. And he has to be totally fast asleep before I can put him down, if not, as soon as I lay him down in bed he'll wake up and cry! :) He even knows when I sit down with him if he isn't properly asleep yet! Little monkey!

Bedtime Routine...
Between 6-7pm he starts to get a little grumpy so he has a bath. He's in his little Summer Bath Seat in the big bath now, which is so much easier to bath him. I alternate between Johnson's Baby Bath products and he has he hair washed once a week. He loves it in the bath, he can be screaming before but once in the warm water he's nice and calm. It's usually James' thing, to bath him, (unless he's working late) then I'll take him into the bedroom to get him dry, in his sleep suit then give him his last feed and he usually falls sleep about 7pm.

Mummy's post partum body...
I had my appointment at the hospital to check everything healed well with my stitches etc, everything was fine, they were really happy with how I healed. And I was told my pelvic floor is still spot on, which is good news after birthing a 10lb baby!! ;)
Weight however, is a different story. My bump has gone down now, but I'm carrying a lot of extra weight. I'm 11 stone, which is the heaviest Ive ever been. Never usually more than 9 stone, it's quite a difference to me. I started the Slim Fast diet, and lost 3 lbs in the first week which was great, but then I couldn't seem to lose anymore, I've been the same for 3 weeks now. I haven't done much exercising though as I just don't have the time, with looking after Taylor, plus running a house and family, AND working from home. I do need to start working on certain areas though, I bought a pair of size 10 jeans to help me lose weight, I can't currently get them past my thighs!! 

Mummy's Best Bits...
I just love how alert he is now, how he grins at me when I look into the moses basket when he wakes up! 

Daddy's Best Bits...
'Putting him in the big bath, I like doing bath time as it's my time on my own with him. I love the way he watches me move around the room and smiles when he sees me.'

Bradley's Best Bits...
'My best bits are: when I wake up in the morning I go into Mum's room and see Taylor, either having his nappy changed or smiling when I come in the door.'
