Julia used to roll tummy to back. She did it about a month ago, constantly for a few weeks, and now she's stopped. She's back to putting her head down and grumping when she's tired of being on her tummy, instead of rolling over. I don't get it. She can roll over back to tummy, but only if she's naked, and it's still a real struggle for her. She can't do it with clothes on. Again, I don't get it, but we've started having "naked play time" every night when DH is home. She's just wigglier, noisier, and more FUN when you take her clothes off.
My budding nudist baby!
Anybody have any ideas what to do about the distracted factor in feeding? She doesn't want to eat-- she wants to snack, in between playing with her feet, doing back bends on my lap to try and see what the cat's doing, grabbing my nose and squealing, gazing out the window. I swear the kid doesn't stay latched on for more than three minutes at a time, but if you try to put the "num nums" away, she freaks. She's too interested in everything that's going on. It's bad enough during the day, when the house is pretty quiet (except for those cats-- this kid is a cat lover), but when DH is home or on the weekends when there's people in the house, she takes forever. I feel like I spend 12 hours a day patiently waiting for her to decide to actually eat.
She doesn't nurse at all at night-- I have the original hibernating bear here. Julia has woken up hungry between midnight and 5 exactly ONCE in her life voluntarily, and that was on her first night of life. Yeah, I know.
: The first month I actually used to set an alarm and wake HER up, so I knew she was eating enough, but we gave that up pretty fast.
