Thanks Mamas for the conversation and suggestions about the solid feeding. Gosh, I miss you guys...
I've been making purees but as Katie mentioned that takes time and for me that time is usually at night after DS has gone to sleep. And I've been sticking to the easy ones, carrots, sweet potatoes, apples, pears. When I do give something that is actually solid, I have to watch him like a hawk. He loves to put a half of a teething biscuit or apple slice in his mouth, which then of course leads to choking. He's just always so hungry
: and in a rush. Seems to be is MO since birth
Anyway, I like the idea of him tasting/eating what we are eating. The only sensitivity might be with dairy as DH has a slight issue with it. And DS seems to react if I have too much ice cream.
Thanks again for your suggestions. I look forward to hearing more and I'll look out for that thread... is within "Life with a babe"?
You may have already been talking about this so sorry if this is a repeat...
Let's talk about nighttime wakings? Is anyone else having this problem? DS wakes up often and lately there is at least one waking where he's just screaming at the top of his lungs. He might nurse for a little bit but that's not it, you run through the list and the next thing you know an hour has gone by by the time you get him back to sleep.
My DH and I have come to the conclusion that it really hurts to grow but DS is so dramatic, it seems. The very loud screaming. DH said last night "I'd hate to see what detach parenting is like". I think DS is just still super High Needs but it gets hard sometimes to have the patients for it every night.
I was just curious if anyone else is going through this.
On the summer notes:
What are you guys using for diapers in the pool?
As for sunscreen, we are using Avalon Organics 18SPF. Seems to work very well and ds where's a hat too.
Katie, thanks for looking the blog. Liam is adorable too!
Thanks for the welcome back. I will try and stay in touch this month.
