Leo - Month 3

Weight:  11lbs 10oz (3%) and 24.5inches (46%)
Clothes: I still have so much fun picking out your outfit everyday. I don't think your daddy ever gets a chance to pick out your clothes because I think about your outfit the night before and basically chase your dad in your room in the morning. I had to pack up all of your newborn clothes and you are almost out of 0-3 clothes too and moving onto 3 month and 3-6 months.
Sleep:  You are a great sleeper and have pretty much been sleeping through the night all month. You still sleep in your rock and play, but you sleep in your room. Your last bottle is at 7:30 and you sleep until 5:30amish. I typically put you back down unless you sleep until 6:30 or 7, but by 7am you are normally awake and ready to get out of bed to play with your daddy.

Schedule: I'm not following a strict schedule but we follow a routine of eat, activity, sleep. Right now your activity time lasts about 60-90 minutes and then you start to fuss and are ready to take a nap. This schedule lands you close to Moms on Call, which is what I followed in the beginning, and lends to 5-6 feedings a day and 2 long naps and 2 short ones.

Health: We are so thankful for your perfect health

Crying: You fuss when you are tired and I'm starting to find that you will fuss when you are bored with an activity...which is typically about 20 minutes of whatever we are doing.
Feeding:  You are eating 5-6 times a day and have moved to a 6oz bottle! I'm having to pump at least twice a day to keep up with you, but its worth it because it allows your dad to give you a bottle every night, and gives me the freedom to have babysitters feed you too!

Likes:  This month you've really started to actually like tummy time, you like screaming and being a silly boy, you LOVE your bath, you really love your Octotunes toy, and you have just loved the baby class we go to on Wednesdays.
Dislikes: You don't like to be tired or hungry, but your a pretty easy cookie to make happy again.
Milestones:  You've been a rolling machine! I bet you've rolled about 25 or 30 times since you learned how to 2 weeks ago. You'll have days where you will roll 5 or 6 times, and then other days were you wont roll at all. You're also grabbing and holding onto items really well, "talking" up a storm, sitting in your bumbo very well, and putting lots of weight on your legs too. 
Places You’ve Gone:  I'm starting to lose track at this point.....we don't seem to ever stop moving kiddo.
Visitors: Coco and Papa and your Aunt Hannah, Gar Gar, and Aunt Nellie have been in LA since the middle of December and are staying for another few weeks too. They are all obsessed with you and get into actual fights about who gets to push your stroller, or burp you or change your diaper.

Postpartum:  This is by far the first full month that I feel 100% back to myself. I seem to have my anxiety somewhat controlled and have truly just enjoyed being a mom this month without the terrifying feelings that I was having towards the end of my pregnancy and right when you came home. It feels really, really good to feel good. 

Roscoe: You've started to really notice Roscoe this month and even think he's funny when he barks. Everyone is very impressed with how good Roscoe is around you, which makes us very proud.


  1. I feel like you gave birth to this baby about 3 seconds ago. How is he three months old?! I just love the pic of him at the top of this post. ADORABLE.

  2. You are such a great mama! He's adorable! Happy 3 months Leo!!

  3. Is Moms on call a book? Have a 3 week old little guy and looking for some ideas for a healthy routine!

    1. Kristin! Congrats! I actually started using moms on call at 3 weeks and it really helped us. I bought it as an iBook on my phone and used mainly the "typical days" and "feeding" chapters to help us.

      Feel free to email me if you have any other questions - teatimewithtess@gmail.com

    2. Great! I will look into it. Thanks so much! :)

  4. Love that you've captured all the important details about Leo at 3 months!!
