Sophia at One Month

(The pictures were taken the day before she turned 1 month old.)

She had her 1 month check up today. She weighs 9lbs 7.5 oz (55%), is 21.5 in long (70%) and her head circ. is 15 in. (75%).
She has breastfeeding jaundice (a benign form of jaundice that lasts longer)but the doctor said that her billirubin levels are at a safe level. She will outgrow this at some point.

In general she is a pretty good baby. She does have days when she stays awake and cries a lot, usually followed by nights when she sleeps and only wakes up once or twice to eat and goes back to sleep. Sometimes however it is reversed and she sleeps almost all day long only waking up a little for feedings and then stays awake for a coulpe of hours at night.
