|His new toy is the johnny jumper - he's so confused, and won't put his weight on his feet,
Henry is the same way...he does straighten his legs but mostly just looks around...I will just try again later.
|(and yes, I know that crawling is not a developmental milestone.)
wow I feel so silly...I thought it was.
We do tummy time, but usually in the am after we first wake up...he seems to be more responsive to it then. He is doing well holding up his head.
Henry rolled from tummy to back awhile ago but now seems to forget how...but 2 days ago he rolled from back to tummy, It was so cool, but he hasn't done it again yet.
Having a child with a birth defect of her feet and not walking until almost 2 makes me so not worry about it. Back then going through Early Intervention I decided that I knew why she didn't walk and if she wasn't caught up by 2 then I would worry...well she walked at 19 months and hasn't stopped yet so I am not to concerned with tummy time, everyone gets there and you will know when something is not right.
Henry really wants to sit up. When you lay him down and stay by him he lifts his head off of the floor and tries the rest of his body. He is always lifting his head, so he sits up with us a lot and on the couch.
so the paci thing...I did it the first time around...and now feel like it is a total hassle. ds is trying to figure out his hands and gets mad when he can't so we use the paci when he goes down to sleep and sometimes after he feeds. He has always liked live things...like a finger or a boob, sometimes he acts like i just poisoned him when I give him his paci. Anywhoo...how can in encourage him to suck on his hand? just take it away?
oh and the amber teething necklace...who has one and do you really feel it works? i am not sure if it helps ds, he has been wearing it for awhile and I took it off yesterday and he started chewing on his tounge, so today i put it on and we will see if there is a diference.
the poor kid is having such a tough time with the teething, he hates anything cold in his mouth. He will chew on his fingers, your fingers, a towel, or sometimes the teething toys
we got him.
oh and the other night, boy he was a mess, he cried for about an hour and we could not figure out why. He wouldn't nurse, he wouldn't sleep, i couldn't calm him by rocking him. When dh got home he stopped for a couple of mins, the cried some more...then finally nursed, and then gave us this huge smile, chewed on his hands for a bit and then went to bed....still have no clue what happened.
