Tyson and Quinn's Corner


This is our life with our little man, born May 2009 and our sweet daughter, born May 2011.

19 June 2011

Quinn: 1 Month

Age: 1 month.  Already.  Sniff.

Weight: 8lbs 4oz (25th %)

Height: 21 inches (50%)

Size: Newborn

Hair: Lots of dark hair

Teeth: None yet.

Sleeping:  Just when we think there is going to be some consistency with her sleep, she changes it up on us.  She's still napping most of the day and then usually sleeps one long stretch at night.

Eating: She's eating well and finally gaining weight on pumped milk instead of nursing.  We've been giving her 3oz bottles every 2.5-4 hours during the day.  She usually goes one longer stretch at night, sometimes 4-5 hours!  A lactation consultant we saw thinks she may have a posterior tongue tie.  The tongue tie may be preventing her from latching properly.  The improper latch causes me pain and causes her to nurse inefficiently, which explains her early weight gain struggles.  As a result, she has to work really hard and doesn't get much milk.  We have an ENT consult soon, so I'm hoping for some answers.

Movement: Quinn is a wiggler!  I'm amazed at how much she can move.  She can already get herself rolled on to her side so I'm guessing it won't be long until she can make it all the way over.  She also likes to be held upright so she can hold her head up and look around. 

Milestones:  Longer periods of wakefulness, she seems more aware of the what's going on around her.

Favorite toys/activities: No favorite toys yet, but loves to be held.  Likes bathtime, except for when it's time to get out.  Loves her pacifier.

Dislikes: Diaper changes, being cold, being hungry and burps that won't come out.

Words: None.

Mad about getting her picture taken:

ooh, that's better.

In deep thought.

an intellectual pose.  hmmm....

So sweet and getting so big.  Still not as big as her brother when he was born, though!
