So my baby boy was born at 41 weeks 6 days...
Idk if its just me but he seems to be doing more than his age (3 weeks, 2days) should be doing.

He is constantly putting weight on his legs and moving his head around making it near impossible to burp him. He digs his feet into my stomach when im holding him like hes trying to get away lol. Like all the time he just pushes his feet down into whatever surfaces hes near and he has a good amount of control over his head... hes been doing this since he was about 2 weeks. Im just wondering if its normal for his age or what?

Yes, that's normal :) The pushing with the feet is a natural newborn reflex that they're born with... and a lot of babies have good control of their head soon after they're born (for newborns anyway). My son was the same way and he was a month early.

I wonder why that is LOL. I honestly cant wait for him to get a little bigger so i dont feel so nervous with others holding him and stuff, im just scared to death someone will drop him or bump his head on something!
