Gilbert has turned a corner with the car seat thing, until now he's had to be the very last one buckled up and as soon as that last clip snaps, the vehicle needs to be moving or else he gets worked up pretty quick lol! As soon as the truck stops I would have to get him out right away, or jiggle the car seat at stop lights. Okay it wasn't terrible, but annoying if nothing else.
But lately he has actually just sat in his car seat and waited for me to run back inside to grab something, or been content to watch the scenery when we drive or even in stop and go traffic! I've been driving more with him lately, it's a minimum of an hour to any city here so I think that has really helped.
Along with swaddling when it gets dark, and when DH drives I'm sitting beside him and I'm able to baby talk to him which just cracks him up every time.
He had a growth spurt this week bang on the 3 month mark. We survived, but it was slightly annoying. I think he was unlatched for a total of 15 minutes that day, the dishes didn't get done, laundry never got hung up and I pretty much spent the entire day sitting in the rocker and nursing him.I really needed a shower so I dug out a bottle and defrosted some milk from the freezer. Of course, the bottle I dug out was a drop in liner one and the freezer bags I've used don't fit so I had to dig out (and wash) another one while holding a fussy, growing/starving baby. Circus!
On the plus side, he did drink 2 oz, not with enthusiasm but with success, and it bought me a 10min shower. I'm happy to know that he can take a bottle if necessary now :)
Now of course my supply is through the roof LOL but he's back to being so relaxed and happy. He has slept pretty much all day today, even passed out on his own on the floor twice amidst the chaos of his siblings and a friend's child that I had over.
He's been giggling a lot and today I taught him that tickling was funny, darn the giggle hiccups though.
