Three Month Update – The stats for these posts are taken on the day Reese turned 3 months old, but all of the information and content is everything up until the point she turns 3 months old. (7/11/15-8/11/15)
Reese’s Three Month Stats
Weight: 12 lbs (44th percentile)
Height: 25 in (96th percentile)
Head: 15.75 in (53rd percentile)
(We took these measurements since we don’t see our pediatrician until next month, so most of her cousins don’t have stats listed either.)
I tried to reintroduce peanuts this month thinking that this wasn’t affecting her,but boy was I wrong. She got a rash all over, eczema on her face, VERY fussy, and had mucousy poo. So, I probably won’t try to see if she can handle peanuts again until a lot later. I have been enjoying Sun Butter which smells a lot different,but has the same consistency as regular peanut butter.
I tried to bring in dairy again, and she can handle it much better than before. It doesn’t make her fussy which is great,but it still gives her gas which is easier for her to pass these day. So, I’m still staying away from dairy,but not as crazy as before. If I use an ingredient that contains milk or dairy in it, I am fine with it,but I won’t put cheese on things, eat yogurt, or drink milk since large quantities bother her more. It is very nice not having to be so strict.
Reese is starting to like sitting up with assistance since she can see more than if she was laying down. This also makes her easier to burp which is nice as well. So, we practice that, as well as tummy time on a regular basis.
Reese hates the snot sucker,but we love it since it works so well. Reese also has a ton of ear wax,but my pediatrician said it isn’t a big deal, she just makes a lot right now.
Reese is getting better at moving her head smoothly, tracking objects with her eyes, and head smoothly as well as making eye contact more. She used to look at people’s hair more than their eyes.
Reese has started drooling more and chewing/gnawing on her hands a lot.
Reese is still sleeping amazingly well. She goes down between 6:30/7:30pm and normally sleeps until 5:30/6:30am. Occasionally she will wake up at 3:30 or 4:30,but then is back down until 6:30 or 7 then. Her napping is getting better too. She is so much easier to put down awake and falls asleep on her own now that we can tell when she is more tired.
She does this funny complaining/whiny cry when she is tired. She is put down to nap every 1.5-2 hours after her last nap which means she has very little if any crying it out.
Thanks for reading about Reese! We love you all!!
