Love the pics of Cailin and Lila:) So sweet!!!
Amanda Reya's Mom- My friend has a 11 mo and a 10 yo and she says it's like having a first baby again! But she loves that her older DD can help her so much! Also, I get about 8 (very broken) hours of sleep a night, 3 hours was just my longest unbroken stretch! OMG, I wouldn't survive if 3 hours was all the sleep I got!
Caden has a BIG butt at night: Thirsties cover, Mother Ease OS, newborn GMD, and sometimes a hemp stuffer. But he never leaks! Disposables, BG 3.0, Goodmamas, FB, he leaked out of them all before we found the magic combination;) Now there's never a problem! I think it's all the layers of absorption for the liters of pee he must produce at night and a cover that fits him very well that does the trick.
Jenifer- My kiddo is SUCH a distracted eater now too! I swear he's eating less nowadays simply because there is so much to see, listen, notice,and grab. I read that my milk adjusts to his age needs and he's getting more calories with less milk now but SERIOUSLY. Stay on for longer than 1 minute, boy! If there is anyone in the room, he won't eat until we are alone. Sometimes he waits so long to eat that he is ravenous when he actually does have time to pay attention to nursing :)
Kelly- We need to move C to his crib soon too. I think I'll miss him more than he will me . Not sure if I'm ready to trade baby cuddle for better sleep or if I'll even get better sleep! First thing though I've got to get him to sleep unswaddled and not in a swing or with me! Need to start leaving one arm out when we swaddle him for sleep... And, well, the swing? Maybe I'll just continue to let him sleep in that until it breaks. And skip the crib for a while! The child sleeps for HOURS in his swing during naptime and before he come to bed with me.
Here's my boy's 6 month picture:)
