Eating -- we plan to do baby-led-weaning here, too. Ingrid is nowhere near ready, and I don't think she will be right at 6 months, either. She is not sitting unassisted, she does not have a pincer grasp, and she is not showing an interest in food, beyond watching us eat. She will get to it eventually.
Poops .. she sometimes has the thicker, sticky ones as described. I'm not worried about it.
Wanting another baby-- I do for sure, but not yet! I'm already having that feeling like, "No way could I love another one as much, another baby would get in the way, etc" which I know will not be how it is -- I'm just so into THIS baby. I got AF yesterday
I was really hoping I would be sleeping through the night before that happened. Sounds like quite a few of us got our cycles back very recently!
We finally went on our first family trip over the weekend, to the beach. It was really fun and Ingrid went with the flow. The car trip was 3.5 hours, she had no problem sleeping in another bed, or being out wandering all day (sleeping in sling).
Speaking of slings, what is everyone using these days? We retired the moby, as she was getting heavy (about 16 lbs?) and have mostly been using the Ergo and a woven wrap. I have a solarveil ring sling that I am trying to bring into the rotation, and a mei tai that I just have not been using since getting the Ergo.
So nice to read all of the updates! Welcome to the new mamas and babies!
