Can you believe this little one is 5 weeks old! It only feels like yesterday i was in MLU labour ward getting ready to meet him. It really does go by so quickly, and everyday i feel so guilty that i haven’t got in enough cuddles because before i know it, i’ll blink and he’ll be crawling around.
As some of you may know I did intend on breastfeeding exclusively for at least 6 months, but with the personal circumstances getting in the way of that, i was only able to breastfeed exclusively for about 6 days, but the latch and everything was perfect and was never once painful, which i am so grateful for, I never even needed to try the Lanolin cream. From day 7 onwards i did breastfeed during the night and formula feed during the day, but know Sullivan is solely formula fed with Aptamil which i used with Logan so i trust that brand completely.
He’s now drinking 5oz every 2/3 hours in the day and 5oz every 3/4 hours at night, but i am blessed because Sullivan will have his last feed at around midnight and not wake up again until 4/5 am but that’s when Logan will wake up too so effectively the start of my day so i don’t mind. You definitely get used to the lack of sleep when you have a toddler who is an early riser.
Now at 5 weeks old Sullivan weighs 8.11oz which the health visitor is really happy with, and he is really tall as well with a predicted adult height of 7ft! He definitely doesn’t get his height from me, or his nose haha!
Sullivan’s neck and head control have been pretty good since birth to be honest, i can tell it won’t be long until he’ll be able to hold his own head up fully without support, as he’s pretty much doing it now. I’m not sure who Sullivan looks like, a lot of people say he looks the spit of Logan but i can’t see it, what do you think?
SPOT THE DIFFERENCE.
One is Sullivan and the other is Logan, can you tell?
