DS has gotten a handful of hair more than once. I just calmly say, "That's mommy's hair" and wait for him to let go and then I say, "Thank you." I figure it's never too early, right? He also lays an open hand on top of my breast while nursing...it's my favorite thing EVER!


He's been napping like crazy lately...and he doesn't seem as hungry. He doesn't act sick or anything. He was nursing ALL THE TIME the past week or so...I'm thinking he was going through a growth spurt and is in the resting part now. I feel bad for just putting him in his swing or chair and having him sleep...like a bad AP. But, he does fall asleep in my arms or while nursing each time and I pick him up if he wakes up upset...

About strollers: I also read about the 6-months minimum age, but I wonder if that also applies to jogging strollers with infant seat attachment.

On a relasted issue: Just read that babies under 1 should not be transported on bike either in a seat or a trailer. Is this for real? I was hoping to bike a lot this summer since the weather and landscape is perfect here.
With the strollers, I think it still applies if you have the carseat. I have a BOB jogging stroller for example and if you read through their site, they say no jogging/running with baby until 8 months of age.


And yeah, no babies under 1 for biking, there is no safe way to transport them. They need a helmet and they don't have the neck control to hold up their head with a huge helmet on it until then.

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

Why does it seem like Mr. Mouth is always hungry?
It's like, when he's awake, he needs to be eating... ?
It hasn't always been this way, and at his weight and height, I can't believe it's another "growth spurt."

I can't find time to do anything!

Oddly enough, he sleeps very well at night. This is just a daytime thing.

This is one of the reasons I shaved my head last week. I had finally grown it out, but the thought of DS yanking it made me realize that it was time for the cut again.

Thanks. That's what I feared. I guess we'll be doing a lot of hiking this year then.

DS had another bad night. Up at 2.30, clusterfeeding until 7, and since then napping while eating. For me, the only chance to sleep was this morning from 7.30 to 11, but I'm sort of getting used to it. This afternoon we went to a nearby state park for a walk/mini-hike. Very nice and on the way there, DS had the chance to see his first moose (if he could see that far).
