Little Eater

Such a little eater. He eats every 2 1/2 hours during the day but we are going to start trying for every 3 hours. He really enjoys eating, as you can see from the pictures! It is amazing because even when Paul and I are eating Owen stares at the food and at us with big eyes like, "hey, whats that? that looks yummy!" We laughed with the doctor at Owen's 4 month check-up when he asked if he was sleeping through the night. He probably wakes up around 3 times at night, he eats, and then goes right back to sleep. The doctor nicely asked, "is he waking up really upset or just kinda waking up and your feeding him?" Caught in the act. I said, "uhhh...well, he never even really opens his eyes". The doctor told us that by this age he is probably fine to sleep through the night but might be in the habit of waking up.


  1. What a handsome guy! Those are such sweet times as a mommy and they go by so fast. If it is helpful to you, my pediatrician actually recommended feeding about every two hours during the day so they got enough calories to sleep through the night. That worked well with our babies, but I also know that every baby & family works different. You are doing such a great job! Keep up the good work.

  2. Thank you! I like hearing what worked for other people. There are so many different ways to do things that it makes it hard to decide sometimes. I'm grateful Owen is a good eater and hasn't had many issues with that. They are special times with my boy!
