Atticus - One Month

This is more for my records than for entertainment value, but if you find any of this information interesting, I'm happy. :)

Weight: 11 lbs., 4 oz. and 90% (up from 9 lbs., 5 oz. at birth)


Length: 22.25" and 75% (up from 21" at birth)


Head Circumference: 15.25" and 50-75% (up from 14.5" at birth)


Diapers:  Atticus was wearing Pampers Sensitive Size 1, but we switched to cloth diapers on April 1.  We are using bumGenius 4.0s and bumGenius Elementals.  He was suffering from some nasty diaper rash, but after 48 hours in cloth, it was completely gone.  I initially only had 12 diapers, so I put him in disposables while I did a load of diaper laundry.  The diaper rash came back.  I ran out and bought more 4.0s immediately, and I haven't put back in disposables again.


Sleep: He takes two or three naps during the day, but they're not at consistent times.  He usually sleeps for a five or six hour stretch at night followed by a two or three hour stretch after a snack.  We've only resorted to the put-the-baby-in-the-carseat-and-drive-around-until-he-stops-screaming trick four or five times.


Food: Exclusively breastfed.  Atticus hasn't received a single drop of formula (or anything else, for that matter).

Clothes: Sleepers are 0-3.  Pants are Newborn.  Onesies are Newborn or 0-3 months.  Outfits are 0-3 months.

March 24 - Graduated to Size 1 disposable diapers.
March 26 - Umbilical cord stump fell off.
March 28 - First bath in the bathtub.
April 3 - Atticus rolled over six times!

Atticus is a really good baby.  Obviously, I don't have anything to compare him to, but I think he's perfect.


  1. I think he is perfect too! I love the pictures!!!

  2. He is so adorable!!! And I think it is great you are doing cloth diapers. :)
