Sounds possible. I think there is a pretty wide range. With my first, it took her forever to transition from 3 to 2 naps, and didn't get there till 8 or 9 months. She went to 1 nap at 12 or 13...

I would not at all be worried about a 7 month old not wanting to eat mushy foods.

If you want a success story, here it is. We introduced food with BLW with my older DD-- no purees, just started...

oh-- so good to read the updates! I haven't checked in in forever.

Sleep went suddenly downhill right at 7 months. Now a 3 hour stretch is the most that ever happens (at 4 months, it was at least 6, often 7 or 8, and occasionally 10). I knew it would happen,...

Mine is grinding, too, as her top 2 have recently come in. It sounds so awful!

However, I remember my older DD doing the same when she was not much older. She is 3 and doesn't do it anymore. I...

My first did this. I think it happened for a variety of reasons-- sometimes she would just eat too much (we BF on demand). She also spit up pretty often, but was not particularly fussy. I found it...

Some of the nap changes take a while. It took DD1 a long time to switch from 3 to 2 naps (months, it seemed, of going back and forth, and she didn't finally settle on 2 until about 9 months), but...

Another fan of BLW. We did it with my older child (now 3). We started at 6.5 months with her, and it was several months before she got all that much food in. I have no idea if there is any...

Many hugs to you, tracymom! I know where you are coming from, I am also having a hard time not getting burned out. This baby needs a lot more attention than my first did. She will sometimes sleep on...

Tracy-- she doesn't nap at all during the day?

Louisa is almost 3 months old now! She has been a pretty sleepy baby, I assume due to being born early. The first 2 months, she slept about 20 hours...

With my first, I posted in the month my DD was born in Life With a Babe (she was early, too) but I sort of regretted it, b/c she did everything late- crawled at 10 months, etc. So I am going to...
