Darling is 4 mths old!


omg... how time flies! my precious little cutie pie is now 4 mths... he has definitely grown a lot since the first day, fresh from the oven.

since i've not updated from month to month, i will now compare his growth measurements from birth till now!

Birthweight: 4.23kg Latest weight: 7.9kg

Length at birth: 52cm Latest length: 65.5cm

H/C at birth: 37cm Latest H/C: 42.5cm

my paed says that jayden is growing very well... in fact he is a big fella for his age! and i was also worried abt his feeding cos he's been feeding on the same amount, 4oz every 2 hrs since his 1st mth till now. Tried to increase his feeding so that he will feed maybe every 3-4 hrs instead but he seems contented with 4oz every 2 hrs, sometimes he doesnt finish his milk too... anyway my paed said: 'no need to worry! in fact u shouldnt increase his feeding... try to stretch his feedings of 4oz longer....! cos from the records, he is still putting on weight healthily!' this fella ah, always known as the heavyweight champion... everyone sees him and asks me how old is he, and when i say 4 mths, they will say: 'wah so big ah, so solid!' hahhaha....

well a little on his milestones/habits:

-he can lift his head up while on his tummy
-he likes to stick out his tongue and blow bubbles, you can see it here.
-he sucks his fingers and now more commonly, his thumb!
-he smiles at people
-he talks with lots of 'aaaa, ger ger...gooo...all the bb sounds'
-he knows how to push away his bottle if he doesnt want to drink his milk already
-drinks more water than before! thank God...
-likes to stand when his feet touches a surface
-grabs anything within his reach and puts them into his mouth
-can hold toys/bolster with 2 hands and bring towards his mouth...
-when put a pacifier into his mouth, he knows how to take it out and tries to put it back...
-doesnt like to lie down, wants to sit upright...
-loves to take bath, he will kick his leg against the tub and water splashes on his body/face...
-tries to rollover... but halfway at the moment :)
-has a few favourite toys: pinkie (a mini bolster)/hippy (a colourful hippo toy)...
-can't be left alone for long... will call/cry out for someone... most the time it's me...
overall, i cant believe how much he has grown! he is definitely more heavy to carry now... cant wait for him to start crawling/walking...so it will require less carrying! hehehhe!

Happy 4 months old..

Cookie said...

What a very cute baby. Just noticed, the baby got his features more on his mommy, hehe.. :):)

Natalia said...

Kris, now you can feel how heavy is he ya. No worry, as you mentioned once he starts to crawl, then less carrying.

Our son really look like 1 year old.

Mummy Moon said...

Your Jayden boy very cute..He looks big on his age wohh!!

christine said...

wow! he's such a big boy!

yeah, your paed is right. jayden will be contented with 4 oz every 2 hours especially if he's on ebm. lyan fung is still on 3 oz every 1.5 - 2 hours. even if you were to give jayden more, he will still look for the milk after 2 hours. their clock works really well.

Juz MeL said...

Yaya Aunty mel says better not increase his feed, else a little bit more and he becomes "Little Michelin". Heehee but still cute though...

slavemom said...

FAMILY FIRST said...

Wow! Your tai-kor is indeed growing very well. Me too was like you .. cant wait for him to crawl or sit on his own cos so tiring mah carry all the time. But now, he is running ALL OVER also makes me more tired! Enjoy motherhood!

Kristie said...

thanks all for ur wishes and comments...

-yes he was indeed big during birth at 4.23kg! my gynae calls him a heavyweight champion!

-seems like the tai ko and the tongue sticking out pictures are very well received hehheeh, i also think he looks so bossy there... :p

-most ppl says jayden looks like his daddy 100%... so jealous!

-ya true... when he starts walking, the chasing starts too...

-jayden is now on formula already.

chris, 1.5 hrs, 3oz? that's quite frequent feeding ya... no wonder lyan fung is so chubby!

joanne, u and ur hubby also very cheerful, that is why sarah is so friendly too!

Julie said...

Wah, birthweight 4.23kg? Jonathan only 3.99kg and Jayden is the heaviest I heard so far.

Yeah, my paed also advised not to increase his the no. of feedings but can increase the amount and to stretch longer hours. My paed quite particular on Jonathan's weight. He sure commented that Jonathan is slightly overweight every time we see him.

Kristie said...

julie, hahahah i dont know to say thanks or not... ya his weight definitely makes me worried cos he is so much bigger than the average babies his age!

my paed says not to increase his feeding amount as well... keep it the same and try to stretch the feeding frequency... but sometimes cannot cos jayden will marah! :x

wow 3.99kg is also quite big ya, nearly 4kg... but jonathan looks fine from ur pix, he looks alright, not overweight :)

Julie said...

I listened to my paed that's why Jonathan is not a "fat" boy now. Sometimes I think it's his bone that's heavy and solid.

I gave him water if he is whinny and pacifier if he has the urge to suck. When I'm BF him, I can't estimate the intake so just offer him my breast if he marah.

Kristie said...

ya same here... jayden is not fat too... in fact his bone mass is heavy and also he's pretty tall!

ya that is the thing abt bf, u dont know how much ur bb drinks!

anyway good to know jonathan is growing well!
