Four Months

I feel like I need to make a comment about time going by too fast, but I say it all the time. Later on, I'll rock back and forth in my chair looking at her newborn pictures and cry.. but for now, I'll carry on with this post instead. :)


This month Georgia has:
  • Continued to sleep through the night. These past few days she's been up at 5am though, which kind of sucks, but I'm still not complaining. We're really lucky in the sleep department.
  • Continued to suck at day sleeps! ;) I've been timing them over the Baby Connect app & she has a pretty poor napping pattern. The community nurses all recommended that she has three main naps per day, but that certainly isn't happening. 
  • Met some more lovely babies her age & let her mama socialise with other new parents!
  • Been shoving her hands in her mouth at any given opportunity. Mmmm, hands. 
  • Started grabbing her toys and aiming them for her mouth - favourites are Slim Shady {her scrunchy monkey} & her two Lamaze animal toys. She also loves Sophie the Giraffe.
  • Smiled constantly! She is super cheerful during the mornings, and is happy as a clam when she is on the change table with her little bum in the air.


  • Managed to go a full month without nappy rash. I hope I'm not jinxing myself by saying that out loud...
  • Breastfed like a rockstar. We're down to just one 50ml top-up before bed, and some nights she doesn't even want that - she goes straight for the boob, and then straight to sleep in her wrap.
  • Has GROWN! We have officially cracked the 6.06kg mark & she is now 61cm long!
  • Managed to fill out her 000 clothing with surprising speed; I guess the growth spurt will do that. Some smaller brands, like Bonds Wondersuits, have already grown tight, so she's in 00 for them.
  • Been a champion tummy-timer. Her neck is so strong now! I realised that I've been holding her in a hip hold while walking around - it wasn't that long ago that we were ever so cautiously supporting her neck, and now all she wants to do is look around.
  • Gone on a car-seat and pram strike. Not a fan of those things at the moment.

You just described my DD. Cat naps, lifting bum, the skanky hands that she loves. Rocking this mumma business.

I just love Georgia, and I hope that I can meet her one day, even though we're all the way across the world! 4 months already! Time is passing so quickly.

Georia is such a pro at tummy time! I'm always amazed by her pictures. Emerson has a strong neck-- we've been holding her on our hips for a while without supporting her head, but she HATES tummy time.

Georgia is such a character!

Internet Auntie Assvice: Have you heard about the 2-3-4 nap schedule? Put her down 2 hours after she wakes for the day, then 3 hours after she wakes from that nap, and then 4 hours later it's bedtime. (Amalah's Advice Smackdown & AskMoxie.com have more detailed info, and she may be a bit young yet, but it's worth a try, yes?)

Georgia is so beautiful love! Thanks for the 4 month update.
