Three Months of Harrison | Baby Update

Can it really be the three month mark already?! Slow down baby boy.
I'm not sure if it's because he is my third baby, or if because he is my first one with having a job and having a time limit to go back, but either way time is certainly flying by.
Even when I look at him now I still see that small little boy I gave birth to, then I see an old photo of him and I can't believe JUST how much he has changed. 

I mean just look at the difference in those two photos!
Sadly I do believe Harrison has eczema, he had a 50/50 chance of getting it as Matt had it quite bad as a child and it did pass on to our first son too. We have been bathing him in Childs Farm products and applying their moisturiser, but I'm sad to say it hasn't really had any effect on his dry patches, his legs however feel silky smooth (I wish mine did ha!)
I will give it a couple more weeks and then maybe move onto something different.

We still can't determine the colour of his eyes as silly as that sounds. Some days they look blue, other days they look a dark grey and then sometimes green. I have noticed certain outfits bring out different colours, but I can defiantly say for sure they are not brown. With our first two you could tell instantly they had my brown eyes.
His hair is getting a lot thicker on top already, well I would say. I can defiantly see a lot more on top than when he was first born. He is fair on top and still a bit dark round the back/bottom. I feel he is going to have a golden hair colour like his big sister.

Guys, be proud... I FINALLY got him weighed properly!
Although it was like two weeks ago so I will probably do my little trick in the next couple of days for a three month estimate, but he was weighing in at 13 lbs 4oz so still gaining weight nicely. As per usual I have no concerns I can tell he is getting chunkier (and heavier!)
I think I may have to get Harrison checked out just because he is sick A LOT after feeds, well not like a lot of sick comes out, I mean he is sick pretty much every time after feeding. If not straight away usually 30 mins - 1 hour after. I have read that it can be common up until six months old, but then I have also read it could be something else, so best to get checked really to be sure I guess.

He has gone up to a size 3 in some nappies, although I went to get rid of all my size 2 pampers and noticed that on one pack it said 'up to 13lbs' and another 18lbs, bit sneaky there! So as he still fits in them I will be using them up, but going forward I will more than likely stick with Aldi's own brand. I mean 98 nappies for just under £5 you can't really go wrong!
He has also gone up into his 3-6 month wardrobe and I'm a little sad about this as I just want him to stay teeny tiny forever and some 3-6 fit snuggly already! I'm sure he will be out of that size before six months too.

I've noticed he has started to develop a little napping routine. He will usually have a nap straight after the school run and then again around lunch time. Sometimes he will have one late afternoon/evening nap, but not always.
We have tried putting him down for an earlier bedtime, but sadly it is just not working out for us. I guess he just isn't ready yet. I even bought a Ewan the Dream Sheep to try and help. It did for the first few nights, but now it is hit and miss.
Harrison is still waking up 1-2 times a night, but I really don't mind. I don't have to change his bum during the night anymore and I literally just dream feed him (I think that's the proper term for feeding him and sticking back in his bed lol)

If you have any help or advice on the sickness please do let me know!

take care xo
