Nursing when we are out and about doesn't go over too well. I find myself really trying to avoid it because he fusses so much.
Same here. Evelynn gets mad if I give her the boob when she's not hungry. "How dare you try to feed me!!" She also screams (not cries, screams) when she's done eating as if to say, "I'm FINISHED!!!" I think it's like a newborn refluxy thing. Curiously enough, though, she doesn't fuss during her nighttime meals.
She still wakes up every 2-3 hours during the night. It used to be that she'd have one long stretch (4-5 hours) and then every 3 after that, but I was in the hospital for 4 days without contact with her. She was bottle fed during that period (expressed milk), and she'd go almost 6 hours at night then. When I got back, though, she started doing this every 2 hours nonsense and it's been going on for 2 weeks now. It doesn't bother me, though, she's such a good nurser at night.
Pediatrician says she's got the head strength of a 4 month old! She's a champion. She loves to stand, too, and pulls herself up from sitting if you hold her hands.
She likes to play with her toys. She has a rattle that she loves, and a pink elephant that plays music when you pull on it. The first time she pulled on the elephant and it made noise she was so excited! So cute. She also likes to play with me while I cook. I give her plastic utensils (spatula, measuring cups) and she goes to town.
She has conversations with us (and also with the TV
). She laughed once yesterday but I haven't heard it since. I think it was because I was laughing so hard, she started to laugh too and then we were both laughing at each other.
Does anyone else's baby DROOL like CRAZY!? (This is how the laughing started, I was holding her up in the air playing with her and drool just started dripping all over my face-- this was really funny to me for some reason).
I have to change her shirts like 3 times a day because they just get soaked with drool.
