Finch eats 6-10 times a day, every 2-3.5 hours. We are still nursing! I am really glad I've stuck with it. The growth spurts are sooo exhausting, but it usually means longer sleep stretches ahead as well as more spaced out feedings during the day. I have gotten more comfortable nursing in public, and am so so so thankful I get to nurse him during the day when I'm at work. It's the best kind of break, and a little stress reliever, too! I pumped once at home for about two minutes and hated how it felt!
About once a week, he will do a 5-6 hour stretch at night! Oh, it is just the most glorious thing! The other nights he will usually go 3-4 hours at a time. He does not nap all that well. Maybe a couple hours total during the day? Lots of 20-minute naps. We are still swaddling him but I think we will need to transition out of it in the next month. At night he sleeps in our bed or in a pack-n-play in our room.
- He went through growth spurts at 10.5 weeks and 13 weeks
- He still struggles with gas and reflux-like symptoms, but it's definitely getting better
- He has a slightly herniated belly button - it will likely clear up on its own
- He goes to the chiropractor every other week
- He has cradle cap, and as I work to remove it, I also seem to be taking out his hair :-(
- We bathe him once a week

Just for fun, I thought I'd keep track of these :-)
- normal poop schedule for a breastfed baby
- pacifier that feels like a boob
- can a baby drown from breastfeeding?
- breastfeeding lip tie symptoms
- Has rolled over several times - he's really quick about it, too!
- Can hang on to some rattles/balls
- Loves to talk and make loud, explosive sounds
- Pulls up his head and legs when laying on the floor
- Has just started to drool, blow saliva bubbles, and chew on his hands
- Is really close to laughing!
- The Wonder Weeks app has been very helpful for me to understand what his little body is going through and learning
- I feel like he's so big because he doesn't take a pacifier so every time he needs comforted, I feed him :-/
- This might be insane, but I still keep track of every time he eats and for how long
- Things keep getting a little bit easier every week!
