Nainoa is three months old today! Today he is weighing at 16 lbs. 10 oz. He is the 95 percentile for weight. He is 24 inches long. He has been cooing and laughing a lot more. He has found his thumbs and has been soothing himself to sleep. He's sleeping for about 7 hour so far with one feeding in between. Our pediatrician says that the night feeding should last another month or so and then he'll start sleeping through the night. He got his 3rd shot today, HIB and Prevnar. He definitely CRIED today. He was MAAAAAD! Ugh, I hate to hear him cry like that. I couldn't look again. I am feeling better about our version of the alternative Dr. Sears vaccination schedule. Spacing it out is definitely the way to go for me. Although I would like to be that non-vaccinating parent, I know that traveling is going to a part of our lives and it just makes me feel a better to know he has some vaccinations. Unfortunately Nainoa has caught a little bit of a cold. He has had a snotty nose just in the mornings, but Dr. said that I shouldn't worry and that it should go away within the next few days. He made me feel good saying that when I am fighting off a cold the antibodies that I make are passed through my milk and on to Nainoa. I LOVE that! I love that I am making anti-bodies for my son and I am building up his immune system. BREAST IS BEST!
