Camille 1 month

Our littlest love turned one month on Valentines Day!

She is growing so fast!

9 pounds 12 oz

Size 1 diapers

Size 0-3 clothes

Eating: Every 3 hours during the day. She nurses well & also takes a bottle like a champ. 

Sleeping: She pretty much follows the eat-play-sleep routine on her own during the day, so she gets lots of daytime naps still. She can stay up to eat & play for about 1-1.5 hours then takes a 1.5 hr nap. She is doing well at night usually taking a late night feed around 10pm or so, then wakes 1x at night to eat, then wakes for the morning around 6am (this is all give or take an hour). I'll take it! Some nights are worse of course, but overall she is doing well!

Development: Baby girl is strong! Lifts her head high and turns it from side to side while on tummy time. She makes great eye contact & grasps my fingers tightly while eating. She is also tracking objects well for her age.

Misc: She started on a generic reflux med, which we feel is helping with some of her pain/fussiness when eating. Some days it seems to help control the spit up, some days not. 
Oh the spit up. So. Much. Spit. Up. She developed a pretty bad rash on her face, neck, upper arms, chest & back (can't see it in this pic). Dr thinks its a mix of baby acne and excema. We are thankful it isn't anything worse. Girlfriend gets doused in lotion several times a day! Camille stays busy daily, as she tags along to big sisters weekly therapy & medical appts. Such a trooper. Guess second babies kind of have to be, no?

Until next month. . . 


  1. She is so cute and I'm glad to hear she is doing so well! Minus the spit-up, that doesn't sound fun :) Was Clara a spitter?? Hopefully she'll kick that habit soon!

  2. I can't believe she's already a month old!! She's so sweet!:)

  3. For the rash and spit-up, sounds like an allergy. Might want to remove dairy and/or gluten from your diet.

  4. Oh, what a doll! Can't believe she's already a month! So glad to hear she's eating and sleeping well.

  5. She is so pretty! Also, we stopped with all the scented baby soaps/lotions and used aquaphor soap for bath time and CerVe lotion. It helped her exzema a lot!

  6. Happy one month, little lady! Hooray for good eating and sleeping, and here's to hoping the spitting up calms down soon!!
