Henry-4 weeks old

Henry's now 4 weeks old, wow that went by fast :). We've loved having our little guy and watching him grow and change every single day.

We certainly aren't in any sort of schedule yet as Henry rules the roost around here (he wakes every 1.5-4 hours to eat) but there are some things that we try to accomplish every day like tummy time/playing on the play mat and reading stories. He loves to be swaddled or ride in the baby bjorn and makes lots of funny faces when he's tired. Some days we live by the 5 S's from Happiest Baby On the Block (swaddle, suck, side/stomach, swing and shush) but overall he's a great baby. He's becoming more vocal and alert when he's playing or we are holding him. He's also very noisy when eating,lots of loud gulps! Thankfully, Henry doesn't cry when Max and Lila bark and usually sleeps through it.

Chris gave him his first bottle yesterday and he took it down no problem (5.5 oz). My lactation consultant suggested leaving the house for the first bottle (as it can be very emotional for Mom) but Chris wanted me around in case there were any issues. All I was needed for was taking a photo :)

So glad things are going great for you guys! Reagan hated to be swaddled, to the point she would scream and fuss. Yay for taking a bottle with no issues it makes it nice when you go out with Henry to just give him a bottle, well at least it was for Reagan and I.

Megan, it's nice to be able to get out every once and a while and know Chris can give a bottle! I haven't had to feed him in public (outside of my nursing mom's group) yet so we will see how that goes. If I don't feel comfortable, then the bottle is a great solution. Glad you found something that works for you and Reagan!
