Thanks ladies, Katy Perry was awesome! I loved it and got a great view. Sorry you missed it Ngaiz. I posted a pic below.
Hayley- I'm with you, it is so hard to know the right balance. I'm mindful that M is basically the youngest bub on this thread so should possibly be having more milk than some of your bubs who are having for solids than her so this is reassuring.
Ngaiz- what a great photo! Very clever! I can't believe how much they are all growing up. It's going so quickly! It's great that you had a better night too.
Spidery- I think men can be very black and white, bub cries "oh he/she has to be hungry", hubby went through a phase where we was convinced that she needed more formula.
Panda- omg the conflicting advice does my head in. I know that each bub is different but even the advice given by two different nurses for the same bub can be so different.
I know some bubs are having 3 meals at her age but I still have in the back of my mind that some bubs her age are also not eating at all. I don't want to go too fast but was thinking of starting a second meal this week only now she is constipated so I want to get on top of that first.
Catlover- it is strange how they just seem to know how to chew. M has no teeth at all. Sometimes if there is a bigger than usual lump in her purée, she will move it to the front of her mouth and spit it out but I can also give her a small chunk of avocado with no problems. It's good to see M and S are having similar amounts of milk since they aren't too far apart with age.
I have M's 6mth check this Thursday afternoon so I'll let you ladies know what the nurse says when I ask about solids. I might have a look at the Baby Love book in the meantime, Hayley. Thanks for the reminder, I haven't looked at that book for ages.
