Trying to not shed tears about my baby being 5 months old as of yesterday. I say it every month, but time is flying! We were just talking about the differences in first and a third born. This poor kid doesn't have much of a schedule and has no choice but to go with the flow. He napped in the school cafeteria today!
In an attempt to get him to sleep better, we started rice cereal a couple weeks ago. I first tried it in a bottle with his night feeding, but he seems to prefer it out of a spoon. He loves it! Although, it didn't do much to help sleeping. So, I decided to give him some formula, just after he nurses at bedtime. He'll only take about an ounce, but it seems to help a bit! Most days, I feel extremely guilty for giving him any formula, since I nursed both the other boys 12+ months. But others, I feel like if it's helping us both sleep better, then who cares!
We really need to transition (I think) out of a nighttime swaddle. Aren't you supposed to do that when they're getting wiggly? But back to that whole not sleeping thing...it's even worse without the swaddle on. So, if you have any tips for that process, I'd love to know them!
Now do you see why half my Instagram feed is coffee pictures? Hehe.
Hope y'all have a great weekend! We're going to be cheering on the Carolina Panthers on Sunday! My dining room is all blue and white and ready to party. I can't wait to show you next week!
