Baby milestones

posted in Uncategorized |

There are a few markers that I’ve always used to note what growth milestones my children are reaching. One is, obviously, what the scale says. My second daughter, who is 18 months old, is very nearly the same weight as her older sister, who is 3.5 years old. They have completely different builds.

Another is what size clothes they wear. Again, my younger daughter can often wear the same size as her big sister, although pants and dresses are too long.

The final one is what size nappies they wear. My oldest daughter is potty trained, but even since she’s been potty trained I’ve had to buy a larger size panties. Today I had more nappies delivered for my second daughter, in a larger size. It wasn’t until I used one of the new sized nappies that I realised how small her other ones had become. I’ve never had a child that wears such a large size. I don’t know when she’ll be potty-trained so it’s possible that she’ll go up even another size.

But one of the bittersweet moments of the day was when I was changing the nappy of my newborn son, who is two weeks old today. When he was first born and we were in the hospital, the nappies were just so big! I didn’t even have to stretch the tabs to make them meet and overlap in the middle. This afternoon, I realised that I was having to stretch the tabs in order to make them meet in the middle. My little boy is growing up :( I realise that this is just the first of many, many milestones that he’ll reach, but just something about having him grow up in such a short time made me almost sad. What’s next??

    I am having the same sadness with my almost 6 yr old…she can no longer wear size 6/6X clothes…she needs 7/8…it is so hard because the bigger the clothes the more trendy and not so appropriate they are.

    Congrats on your new little boy! I really enjoy your blog…

    Thanks, Jen! I’ve also heard that it’s harder to get good second hand clothes in the bigger sizes because kids just wear them out before they outgrow them. I’ve heard the same thing about little boy clothes that are bigger than size 3.

    Awww…our firstborn was so tiny at birth that the newborn-sized diapers were big on her. I do remember when we had to get her Size Ones and I cried!
