Baby J is 10 Months Old

baby 10 month update

How big? Baby J turned 10 months old last week. He had his 10 month review with the Health Visitor on Tuesday so I now have his exact measurements rather than me using my inaccurate bathroom scales! He now weighs 21lbs 6ozs and is 76cm long. He has been wearing size 9-12 month clothes since 8.5 months and they are still fitting well.

Eating? He still loves his food, especially fruit. He is mad about strawberries and plums, to the point that when I offered a cheeky little slice of pizza he rejected it in favour of strawberries. He seems to be a fan of chickpeas in their various forms, such as hummus and falafels which I’ve been making from scratch using our Babymoov Nutribaby.  
Breastfeeding? He hasn’t dropped any more feeds recently. He still only asks for milk when he wakes up in the morning, before naptimes and bedtime, and then obviously his night feeds.
Sleeping? We still seem to be going through the growth spurt that I mentioned last month, oh joy of joys. I desperately need to get some black out blinds or curtains as he has been waking up at 5am and not going back to sleep. He is ready to start the day and I most certainly am not! I think it’s because it is so light by then and our bedroom curtains are ridiculously flimsy. Speaking of bedrooms, once this growth spurt is out of the way I am thinking of moving J into N’s room, eek!
Milestones? We’ve had lots this month!
  • Cuddles! He loves to hold on tight and give proper cuddles.
  • New teeth! Number 3 and 4 have made an appearance.
  • Cruising everywhere!
  • J can walk using a walker or holding hands.
  • He is babbling lots – although the Health Visitor said he didn’t score well on communication so she will be following up in 3 months to see if he has improved.
  • He has said “mum” once.
  • He ADORES Little N and is interacting with him more.
  • He love swings; I have just bought one for our garden.
  • He loves to build little towers out of his wooden blocks. Just two or three blocks at a time.
Me? I have been rubbish with “Bye Bye Mum Tum” and have not made much effort – someone give me a kick! it’s hard because I am so tired at the moment. Once this growth spurt is over I am sure I will feel better. I had my haircut last weekend – still rocking a long bob [lob?!] which I love and treated myself to a few new clothes which has made me feel fab!

Best of Worst


  1. Ah such a lovely update, he sounds so cute :) xx

  2. What a lovely photo - how did you get your kiddo to sit still long enough for a photo? haha! Mine just turned 9 months so we have similar milestones and stats - my little guy is two and a half feet tall! Can we kick each other for the "mum tum" (love that term) cause I haven't made any progress since going back to work (which was so many months ago now)

  3. I think this is a hard stage, on the move and up to all sorts. Hope the teeth are not too painful. #MagicMoments

  4. Ah how sweet - he sounds like he's doing really well, even if he isn't sleeping brilliantly! I'm the same, mum tum is still here 13 months's just too exhausting to think about doing anything about it!!

  5. What a lovely update! Baby cuddles are the best. Choosing strawberries over pizza is pretty good. I have the Nutribaby, too, but I didn't have time to try it before we left for our holidays. #MagicMoments

  6. Aww how lovely that you are getting proper cuddles now and that J has said "mum" once. Hope the growth spurt passes soon and you can get a little more sleep. #ssamazingachievements

  7. I love when my little one grabs and holds on tight for a good hug! Signs are a great fun way to boost communication skills at this age, please pop by and feel free contact me directly with any questions!

  8. Gorgeous picture what a cutie. #SSAmazingAchievements

  9. Aww lovely update & record of his development, and great picture! #SSAmazingAchievements

  10. What a lovely picture, and good for you still breastfeeding, I have lovely memories of it all. It is great to record our little ones development and growth I wish I did it more. x

  11. Aww the 5am starts must be a killer but he sounds like the little man is doing really well. Bet the snuggles are lovely! I wouldn't beat yourself up about the tum...being tired sucks! Thanks for sharing this with #bestandworst and see you soon xxx

  12. So lovely ... the cuddles are fab, aren't they. Those tiny little hands around your shoulders, quite an enjoyment! :-)

    As for the mummy tum; I can relate. I keep meaning to do proper exercises but just can't find the time :-) #CommentLuv

  13. What a lovely update. 5am starts are hard but can also become part of the norm! What lovely milestones this month, love the cuddles.
