Tummy Time!

17 Feb

We’ve been trying to do a few minutes of “tummy time” to strengthen Park’s neck muscles and today we got out his activity mat for the first time. A thank you to Great Uncle David and Great Aunt Karen for the gift! He loves it!

We also had his 2 week weight check yesterday. Babies lose up to 10% of their birth weight before they leave the hospital and your pediatrician wants your baby to be back up to their birth weight by 2 weeks old. Luckily Parker was already over his birth weight by 1 week old, but they still wanted him to come again just to make sure. He was born at 7 lbs, 6 oz and left the hospital at 7 lbs. At his one week he was up to 7 lbs, 8 oz and when we went yesterday he had grown to 7 lbs, 13 oz! It’s so hard to tell when nursing how much they are eating so I’m glad to know that he is getting enough!
