Growth spurt

This week Kien passed 2 milestones; on Tuesday he turned 4 weeks old and today he is one month old. He was weighed by the midwife Liz Harding on Wednesday and he was 3900 grams, or 8 pounds 9 ounces. He has been going through a growth spurt in the last week and feeding every 1 1/2 - 2 hours. He averages 800 millilitres of mother's milk per day!

He has been a bit colicky as well, which has been distressing for his parents. He has spent a couple of nights sleeping with me because we cannot settle him. However last night was good since he did not suffer too much, and was able to sleep in his cot - thank goodness. I get so worried I might squish him when he is sleeping with me.

This photo was taken during one of the many burping missions.
