Mason Mitchell: 1 Month

Mason turned 1 month on May 15th!  I know I'm EXTREMELY behind, but I drafted this post back in May and I want to publish this so I can remember everything!  <3

Age: 1 month
Height: 21.75" (47th percentile)
Weight: 8lbs 7oz (17th percentile)

Milestones: Mason has started to coo and it's the cutest thing ever!  

Sleep: Mason loves sleeping and still sleeps a lot during the day!  He loves sleeping on Mommy's chest and in the Ergo!  Overnight he sleeps in his rock and play next to our bed and he usually wakes up 2-3 times to eat.  During the day he naps whenever he's tired....usually on Mommy, in the swing, or in the rock and play!  We tried swaddling a few times but he seems to prefer no swaddle.    

Best Moment: I love hearing him coo and having him fall asleep on my chest!  

Health:  Poor Mason seems to have a bit of acid reflux and he gets fussy after feedings and almost always spits up.  Luckily he's happy after he spits up, but I feel so bad that he might be in pain!  He's still gaining weight so the doctors don't want to intervene with medicine at this point.

Eating: Mason nurses about 9-10 times a day for about 20-30 minutes a session.  He hasn't had a bottle yet.  We had some trouble with his latch initially and I don't want to mess that up! Sizes: Mason is wearing newborn clothes and newborn diapers!  He goes through about 10 diapers a day!  

Things I want to remember: Mason loves the white noise app on my phone and really loves the vacuum sound!  He also loves when we "shush" to help him fall asleep.  He loves sucking on Mommy's finger to relax.  He has a fussy period every day just like his big brother, but Mason's fussiness is less predictable than Carson's!  Mason loves when I rub his cheek or forehead with my fingers.

Here are a few pictures from our weekly photo shoots during Mason's first month:

Sweet dreams at 3 weeks!
