@Gelati my DD has slept with both arms out since a week old. Every time we swaddled she managed to get the arms out and didn't startle so we left it. We used to wrap her up with Muslin wrap from waistline down though. Now no muslin wrap and just sleeping bag. The only problem is I only have one sleeping bag for the warm weather. Thought it would be cool soon so I have 2 x tog 2.5 sleeping bag waiting for her. I might need to buy another sleeping bag.
She just started to recognise the bunny and have been holding it close to her now. Will need to wash the soft toy!
BF first thing in the morning is the best. 1) you don't have to get up earlier to pump 2) your body will know what antibodies to produce through her saliva
Maybe I should drop the 2 am pumping so it's full for her to suck on. Might try next week. But right now the feeding and sleeping routine is so good!
Has DS started solid yet?
She sleeps from 8-7 with a dream feed at 10.30. If she goes to bed at 7 then she gets up at 6. 11 hour sleep. Awesome yeah.
@bbhope maybe your DS starts to like car seat as well. I'm waiting for my dd to love the car seat. We have 2 car seats so was thinking to bring one in the house and let her get used to it. Might be good idea for her to watch us eat in the car seat anyway. Otherwise we have to eat on the floor as she can't sit up yet lol.
I think it's a good idea to wean dummy off before 2. Dummy is actually good. I like how it can calm her down without much intervention from us. If she slept well when the dummy fell out we wouldn't have gone cold turkey. It was really hard for 3 days. She was so upset when we went cold turkey.
That's awesome that his sleep is developing too. I have heard many friends said their babies learned to self settle when they were ready. Around 3-4 months. We taught her at 6 weeks but even then it's not full on. People keep telling me to pat and don't pick her up. We picked her up and cuddled. Pat doesn't work so perhaps she doesn't really know how to self settle yet
Yeah 2 am pump. I haven't missed the 2 am pump for the last 3 months I think haha. Oh I lied. I did sleep in 3 times. But otherwise I have broken sleep for the last 14.5 weeks. I pumped at 9 pm. Then finish my chores, putting dishes away etc. in bed by 10. Sometimes it takes me 30 mins to fall asleep now. Up at 2 to pump. Back in bed by 2.30 am but again take 30 mins to fall asleep. Up again around 6.30 am to either pump or feed her.
I pump 5 times a day. Around 6.30 am, 11 am, 4 pm, 9 pm and 2 am. So when she only catnaps I feel rushed all the time.
Could you maybe text her again to follow up? Some people I know are terrible in replying to text. They simply forget to reply. So if you text again and no reply then yeah maybe. But we would be happy to have a new mum joining our MG.
Wow that's a lot of poop! I am jealous. Lol
Gosh is that $600 for lip tie or tongue tie? Lip tie is laser is that right? Tongue tie snip cost us a couple hundred bucks too. But we won't get the lip tie done. It's minor anyway. But yes I am angry for you! If they picked it up you could have BF longer and DS didn't have to swallow so much air and in pain. It's very annoying. They are meant to be the experts!
