Miss Kiara - One Month


Can you guys believe? It's already ONE MONTH! I feel like it has been the longest and shortest month of my life. A lot of things has happened to us in a month. I wanted to update posts on my blog but, it has been a busy start of new life. It's surprising how much you forget about caring for yourself once the baby arrives. In this phase I am  just googling pretty much everything I should know at this point. 

Our baby Kiara is too cute staring at us (actually blinking) with her grayish brown eyes. She started smiling at us this week. She started to spend much time without crying and being awake. Her first few weeks were just crying, nursing and sleeping. So, finally we are enjoying our precious time with her.

Kiara wants to be held and be on either of us all day long. Once you feel she is asleep and put her  down, she gets cranky and starts crying. But she loves her 4moms Mamaroo and spends her quite time (for 15-20 minutes thrice a day) in there staring outside our glass doors. So it's a Win-Win situation for us when she is in her Mamaroo.


Kiara's Monthy Update

Weight : She was 7 lbs, 5 oz when she was born and dropped slightly to 6 lbs, 10 oz. Then she was back up once my milk started up on day 4. She was 7 lbs, 75 oz that's on her first week doctors appointment. She has her next doctor's appointment this week so will update her present weight on next blogpost.

Diaper Size : Newborn until yesterday. We just started the size 1 from today.

Clothing Size : NB or 0-3 months (depends on the brand).

Nicknames : Kia Bear,  Kia, Kiu, Jeet calls her Chakku (Sparrow or a small bird in Gujarati).

Health : She's a bit snorty and it's normal according to the pediatrician. She smells lovely like a yummy baby. She is always hiccuping, very gurgly, cranky and cries.

Sleep : She doesn't give hard time  when it comes to sleeping. Night times are Super good as she wakes up once in 2 hours for nursing. The only time she acts up is from 9 pm to 11 pm then later she is all relaxed.

Diet : I feed her almost 9-10 times a day and nurses around 30 min to 1 hr.

Baby Gear : Aden & Anais Swaddle blankets, 4 moms Mamaroo, Dock A Tot.

Loves : Milk, being held on all the time, 4 moms Mamaroo quiet time, Dock A Tot sleep time and car rides in her 4 moms carseat.

Dislikes : Being put down.

Milestones : She started recognizing my voice and turns in my direction when she hears me. She has started staying more awake. She smiles at us and responds to us when we play with her. She gets her head up to see me while I put her on my chest or shoulder. Tries to push herself up while I carry her. And makes noises and responds to me while I play with her.

  8. She is beyond adorable. I can not believe it has been a month already. My Son hated being put down at that age. I had a baby carrier that really helped.

  15. Also about the part where they say that a baby should be calmer around your voice. This is a learned trait for the baby. Lots of parents don't realize they should talk to their baby even while it's screaming. If you do this (even in the middle of a loud crying spell) the baby will learn to calm down when you talk. If you don't do this, the baby won't learn to calm down when you talk. It takes a few weeks (and even months) for this connection to happen, so it's important to start doing it more often at around 2 months old. Then by the time they are 3 months they should be more calm when you speak :) (my own experience and my friends) :)
