Noel, Wow no milk, wheat or rice. That would be really hard for me. I hope that it helps Mr Jasper with the BF though. Glad to hear he is doing well otherwise! I was on herbal suppliments.
Mari, good to hear Fede is doing so well. I can't beleive its already been two months!
AF Simon, we are a month old today. I can't beleive its been a month. He has changed so much in just a few weeks.
Hi all! Fede had his 2 moth appt. on friday. He is doing excellent! He weights 5.280 kg, so Dr told me to stop worrying about my milk... it's obviously good enough!! I can't remember his lenght measure, but he was doing fine too. He is very healthy in general and now we are giving him his vaccines according to the schedule.
Ella- Eliza is too beautiful to be true! What a beautiful little mouth!
Kelly- I'm glad it was just a tooth coming. By the way, some wives' tales are true, specially those about teething!! :)
Noel- I MISSED your long posts! Congratulations on Jasper growing so well!!!I really, really hope Jasper finally accepts the breast after this diet changes you are doing... But if not... don't feel bad because of it, the important thing is that he is getting your milk, even if it is from a bottle.
About co-sleeping... Well, part of me loves his little warm body so close. But the truth is that our bed is small (smaller than queen size), and I fear to crush him in my sleep, so I tend to sleep most of the night in the same position and I wake up with horrible body aches... I also figure that as he grows the problem will get worse "space-wise"... That's why we are trying to get him back to the crib.
Marianna – We have always loved co-sleeping & do it until the baby is about 2 or so. As long as it works for you guys, there’s no reason not to! Our little ones transition away from us as they’re ready to. I have found a cuddly baby or toddler does wonders for my insomnia, too! Enjoy those baby snuggles!
- Ahh… the NICU thing makes total sense. It’s so great that you’re listening to him & giving him the reassurance that he needs!
Ella - Eliza is just so adorable! I can't get over that mouth. She could rival Angelina Jolie with those lips!
Anna - I hope you all are over the stomach bug soon! Ugh I just hate hate hate being sick. And it's even worse when your little baby is sick. :(
Elyse - you just reminded me of when Elena was much younger - she used to just kick and bicycle her legs all the time when laying on her back. We used to joke that she'd be a great swimmer or kickboxer. I forgot about that until you mentioned that William's legs were always moving. LOL. Glad he doesn't seem to mind daycare too much!
Jan - Great to hear form you! Sounds like Kaeden is doing great. I can't believe
Hi Everybody!!! Sorry I've been so MIA lately! I am working two jobs now, which is great for the finances, but I don't see the family much during the week, nor do I have much time for anything else... Anywho I thought I would post a quick update on Kaeden, since I haven't for a while!
Kaeden is now 10 months, and will take 5-6 unaided steps, if you stand him up and get him going. He gets into just about anything he can find, and is now eating like a "big boy". I feed him whatever we eat, unless it's not baby friendly(read frozen pizza). Then he gets chicken nuggets. :) Of course he is still on the bottle as well. He is 28" long(tall) and 21+lbs at last check, so probably more than that now. I can't seem to get him to STTN though, which is a minor source of frustration. He will go to bed and sleep in his own crib until the 4AM feeding, at which time he needs a baba and comes back to bed with me. Where he usually remains for the rest of the night. DH has elbowed him a couple of times, although not in a damaging way, so I really should work a bit harder to get him out of our bed.
I thought I had posted an update the other night, but can't seem to find it. This is my third week back at work and William's 3rd week at day care. He is doing so well- loves being there and it's not as difficult leaving him as I had anticipated. He's always sleeping when I drop him off and often sleeping when I pick him up. I usually get a wonderful report- his only cranky time is when he's hungry and then you better get the bottle quickly (so far, I am able to pump enough for him and haven't had to deplete the freezer supply). He's starting to roll back to front and if he could hold his own weight, he'd be running. His little legs never stop running :) William will be 4 months on the 23rd and has his appt on the 26th. I can't wait to find out how much he now weighs.
Oh Ella, she is such a doll! Isn't it fun when they start getting more interactive? It's so neat to watch their skills developing, and them discovering the world!
Kelly, is Elena better now? It sucks to watch your baby suffering (plus they don't make your life any
