Size 3 diapers
6 to 9 months mostly and I can put you in some 12 month bubbles already
If I were to say there was a schedule, it would probably go something like this…
7:30am wake up & bottle
9:30 nap (45-60 min)
11 am bottle
1130am catnap (sometimes)
7pm bottle & bed
That was probably more what we aimed for then more what actually happened. The only thing that I know stayed consistent was your bath and bedtime.
You got over your RSV right around 5 months, but did have a runny nose some this month. Otherwise, you were mostly healthy thankfully.
You definitely picked up on all the commotion from this month and the fact that I was tense.
You are such a Mama’s girl and cry when I walk out of the room. You hate to be hungry and you seem to get bored pretty quickly with the few things that entertain you around the house. So I try to keep you moving.
You have been my spit-up baby from the very beginning, so the doctor recommended that I feed you fewer ounces more often during the day. That does seem to help. You usually get 5 bottles a day with about 6 ounces each. There were a couple weeks this month where your appetite really seemed to have shrunk and you were only eating about 4 ounces at each feeding. I kept worrying that you were going to get sick because the only other time you’ve done that was when you had RSV. You may have just been trying to adjust to your all formula diet because I stopped breastfeeding at about 5.5 months. You are on the Gerber Gentle formula now. You don’t take the bottle all that well from other people and seem to prefer your Mama be the one to give it to you.
Being entertained constantly!
Watching big brother
Getting out of the bath tub
Mama leaving the room
Rolling back to stomach- you roll everywhere
Started to sit up (still very wobbly)
Laughing so hard
Rising on your forearms like you want to crawl
We took you to Destin for Daddy’s birthday weekend (2/26/16)
Your cousin Kayla came to see you and help babysit while Mom and Dad were in California
This month was a tough one on me. It seems far away now, but I was a mess. This post pretty much summed it all up. The lack of sleep was killing me. I’m such a better person right now (you’re almost 6.5months) that you’re sleeping through the night and I am too. I can function during the day and I’m so much happier. So much of it is a mindset, I think. You really just expect to be woken up at night the first couple months after your baby is born, so you’re prepared. I was not prepared for my 5 month old to be waking me up once or twice a night. I was frustrated with her and myself. I knew I was a good sleep trainer, but things were not working right with her. Finally, I figured it out; and we are both happier people. And I will dedicate a whole post to that one day soon 🙂
