4 Month BabyWise Update

Pin It
So Elijah is now 4 mo, 1 week. At about 17 weeks (from due date), he started having a growth spurt. I think this was 1 week before he turned 4 months. His growth spurt lasted 2 weeks. Pretty much at 19.5 weeks it ended. After posting a few questions in the Babywise Babycenter forum, I was introduced to the Wonder Weeks. He was right in his wonderweeks. Now that we're on the other side, I could see that he was effected by them. He did so much growing and learning in those 2 weeks. He went from 4.5 oz up to 7 oz per feeding. He is now back to 5 oz. I was so stressed about pumping enough while I was at work. I started pumping in the MOTN right before this, so I had some milk stored up and a good supply. During these weeks, Elijah started waking up once or twice at night. I think it was because he wanted to eat-or possibly growing pains. I thought it may have been teething, but now I see I was wrong. I also think that his sleep was just disrupted by everything he was going though-the 'wonder' of seeing things a new way.

He's back to STTN and eating every 3 hours. His naps stick around 1.5-2 hours with at least one 45 min nap per day. I think I'm now slowly going to move him to a 3.5 hour schedule and possibly remove the DF. We'll see how it goes!
