Sleep: We are so very lucky in this department. Our biggest sleep issue right now is Thatkid! Thatbaby goes to bed around 7pm, and we can put him down awake and he puts himself to sleep. He wakes once between 12:40 and 4am, then goes right back to sleep. He wakes up again around 5:40 and would go back to sleep, but Thatkid gets up around that time, and after a quick trip to the bathroom, heads straight to the nursery where I'm feeding his brother and then we're all up for the day. I can also occasionally get Thatbaby to nap in the swing, which I could never do with Thatkid.
Eating: We had some bottle rejection this month. So not fun! Luckily we had a couple of other brands on hand that we could try. So far he's good with the Dr. Brown's. We'll see how this next month goes.
Best Moment: The first time we figured out the swing thing I had moved it to face the kitchen while Thatkid and I were making dinner. Thatbaby just mellowed out and lay there so content. He just drifted in and out of sleep.
Monthly Wisdom: Thatkid's sleep issues when he was a baby, compared with Thatbaby's lack of sleep issues, really helps drive home the point that sleep is dependent on the kid, not the parent. Some kids are good sleepers, and some kids aren't. And really, you just need to work with what works with your kids, not what they SHOULD be doing. Especially since I now know from experience that it all works out in the end.
Goals for the Upcoming Month:
- Survive first family vacation with 4!
- Get Thatbaby ready for daycare.
- Keep working on crib naps.
Things Thatbaby is doing:
- Grasping things placed in his hands
- Focusing on objects
- Holding his head up
