He is 20.5 inches long and 7 pounds, 7 ounces. This puts him in the 3rd percentile for size! He's still quite the little peanut. :) (His brother, on the other hand, is in the 97th. I guess this means if you average them, they're middle of the road size wise?)
Because he's so small, he's in all newborn clothes and newborn diapers. I've put him in a 0-3 sleeper once while his clothes were in the wash. He was swimming in it! He's still swimming in some of his newborn clothes.
So far, he has been exclusively breastfed. No formula like Jeremiah had by this point. He eats the majority of it from a bottle, and generally takes about 15 ounces a day. Though yesterday, he wanted to eat a lot more often, so he may be having a growth spurt!
He's a very sleepy boy! He generally sleeps around 20 hours a day, and at times will even sleep a 5-6 hour stretch. It's nice. :) And he sleeps well in our co-sleeper, which is good as we're determined not to have this one sleep in our bed.
Nathaniel is a very calm baby. He's a joy to hold and cuddle.
I'm so blessed to have two such wonderful sons.
