Alayo is 5 months old!

Here is a quick baby update with a template from Anna Saconne.


Height/Weight: About 19.8 lbs and 27 inches.

Routine: He wakes up for the day around 7:30/8, eats and plays for an hour or so before taking his first nap. This nap has been getting shorter and shorter, right now it’s about 30-45 mins on a good day. He plays during the day and accompanies me on my tasks/chores for the day. His bedtime is around 8:30pm (give or take an hour lol depends on what we are doing that evening). He is able to self-soothe and put himself to sleep.His nighttime routine consists of: bath, massage, feed, story time, prayer in his crib, lights turned down, at which point he puts himself to sleep.

Sleeping: He sleeps through the night and usually takes one “good” (>1hr) nap a day a few 10-15 min naps here and there.

Eating/Feeding: He is formula-fed and has about 5-6oz every 2-3 hours with the exception of nighttime where he eats about 6oz and sleeps through the night.

Sizes: Alayo is wearing 3-6 months clothing both in pants, tops/onesies and sleepers. He’s up to size 2 in diapers but we will be switching to size 3 in the next two weeks or so.

Milestones: He smiles a lot now and laughs by himself or in response to others. He likes to people-watch and follow people around the room with his eyes. He enjoys bringing toys up to his mouth.

My update video consists of a belly shot at 5 months postpartum. I wish I could help and give secret tips about how I lost the belly fat, but I don’t truly know myself. My “normal” habit is that I drink lots of water, minimize fast food and…that’s about it. I’m down to 128 lbs and back to my pre-pregnancy clothes.
