That's just it, her naps are 30 mins long, in the last month she has had about 8 naps of 1.30h, the longest naps in her 10 month life. I don't care which long naps she takes it's just getting her to take them.
I'll figure it out.
She has three bottles as outlined, 8am 220ml, 16.45 220ml, 19.00 270ml. They are supposed to get at least 500ml at this age, she eats loads of solids and has always been off the weight/height scale, 10.3kg at last weigh in!
I really need to stick to a routine for DD and myself, if I just let her do her thing there may not be any naps. I have to have a rough time for everything for booking appointments etc.
My 10 month old DD has always been a cat napper. She still takes 3 naps a day but they are only 30mins long. She also still wakes at night so I want to really try and improve her daytime sleeping. Currently our day looks like this.
Awake at 6.45-7 ish
Bottle at 8.00
Nap at 10.15, 30 mins
Lunch at 11.30
Nap at 13.15, 30 mins
Fruit at 14.30
Nap at 16.15, 30 mins
Bottle at 16.45
Sandwich and cheese blocks at 18.00
Bottle and bed 19-19.30...
I found it really tricky getting socks on a newborn so I would definitely get pants/pajamas with feet attached to them. Our DD had cute baby-grow/pajamas on for about the first 6-8 weeks before I started putting her in real clothes daily, like pants, dresses etc. It's so much easier in the beginning. Before I had her I bought lots of those body suits with poppers on each side so that they open completely flat, thinking it would be easier for me (and especially DH) to...
Well according to the doctor, it's def a keloid. It's strange because I'm white and there doesn't seem to be a history of them in my family, although we haven't had a lot of operations so who knows. The doc prescribed a cortisone cream but the pharmacist advised Dermatix Gel. It's about 40euros a tube, I've used one whole tube so far and haven't seen any improvement. I will try the next tube and if that hasn't worked maybe I will try those silicon sheets.
Thanks for the replies.
Ooh I hadn't actually thought of putting her in anything but a swim diaper... We have found a pool that has a baby pool, everything is inside, it's kind of sub-tropic like a centre parcs pool.
I'm curious to see how one of those diapers holds up. It's a good idea about just hanging around first and letting her get a feel for the place though. She loves to be out but I really want this to go as smoothly as possible. So we will def...
DD will be one at the end of April and we're thinking of taking her swimming for the first time in March/April. Here they changed the rules again and recommend swimming from +1yr because of the chlorine.
She loves going in the bath and being out and about so I hope she is going to like it. There are a couple of pools close by with baby pools and we are thinking of going mid week so it won't be too busy, swimming pools get so noisy and echoing when they're...
My DD is now 9 months and she goes to sleep in her crib but we normally end up co-sleeping by the morning. She is now in her own room (she was waking up too much in our room) and because DH does shift work there is a single bed with a bed rail in her room. I get really cold at night and have to have something around me to be able to sleep, I also get really sore neck muscles so I sleep with a roll neck top on and in a sleeping bag. I tried keeping the duvet around my...
