This little munchkin of ours is getting so big so fast. (She’s already in 3-6 months now… as of this week… although everything is a bit big on her.) It blows my mind. The lovely lady is still not sleeping through the night anymore, but is doing really well with her napping. At night, she’s up about twice a night… 11ish and 3 or 4ish. Not horrible. She is still boycotting a bottle, which is a pain in the butt… especially because this past weekend, I came home from the gym to find Mark trying to give her a bottle. He had been trying for 20ish minutes. I decided to try and give it a shot and sure enough, she took the bottle from me. Think she’s trying to tell us something?
Baby Boo has also been pretty weird with her evening nap. She’s usually due for a nap between 4 and 5, but has been refusing it… so I end up either trying to put her down for hours or, I get her to sleep and she thinks she’s down for the night. Ugh. Last night I decided to keep her up, so instead of 1.5-2 hours of wakefulness, she had 2.5. It went really well.
Besides sleeping, this child has been also getting quite the little personality. She absolutely loves to smile and seriously, melts my heart with every grin. I can honestly say that I love her exponentially more every day. She’s so delicious.
I ‘might’ try to give my baby Brady a bottle at 4 weeks (I plan to breastfeed and pump). Only because I’m terrified that he won’t take it afterward, if he doesn’t get used to it… and I’ll be teaching piano part-time (while my mom or husband watches the baby). I guess it’s just one of those things that you figure out as it comes… Every baby is different, and it’s all a learning process.
She is just SUCH a cutie!! Oh my goodness. 🙂
Totally! We actually have her a bottle at 2 weeks and she was fine. Taking pumped milk via bottle as needed… Until one day she wouldn’t. But, we actually had a breakthrough this weekend… She took the bottle for my husband. I think as they become more aware, this kind of thing can happen. But like everything, it’s a phase.
