This morning, Corbin weighed 10 lbs, 0.5 oz. We have had QUITE an interesting couple of days as far as his behavior goes. The only thing I can attribute it to is a growth spurt.
He had been a very predictable baby up until Thursday. He liked to nap in his bouncer after he ate. He usually ate 3-4 oz every 3-4 hours. He was easy to put down at night, and he would sleep in his bassinet next to our bed.
All of a sudden, he refused to be put down. He would scream his head off if I put him down anywhere. He ate almost non-stop. I'd say he wanted 5-6 oz every 2-3 hours. He didn't seem colicky because his crying only began if I put him down. He refused to sleep unless he co-slept. He would fall asleep on our chests, but would not be put down in his swing, bouncer, crib or bassinet, no matter how deep his sleep was. I had to put him down in order to pump yesterday, and he would scream & snort while tears ran down his face. It was heartbreaking!
Last night, we co-slept, even though I really am anxious about co-sleeping. It's not a long term solution.
Today, he seems much better. He slept in his swing & is in a much better mood. I think he was just going through a growth spurt & it made him pretty uncomfortable & needy.
My fever was finally gone this morning. I thought it was gone a few days ago, but then I noticed it came back in the evenings (around 100). But this morning, it was 98.8, and I actually have some energy today.
I took this picture of Corbin just a few minutes ago. He looks like he has changed physically in the past 48 hours, too. His face is fuller & when his eyes are open, they look a little smaller, probably due to his growing noggin.
