I know this is all I post about now, but you try getting sleep only an hour at a time and see what else you think about! So last night was rough and I decided to take a step back on the her sleeping in her crib thing. I think I made too many changes at once, so right now we are working only on getting her to go a whole night without nursing. Then once I get her sleeping better I will start the...
I am considering switching to cloth diapers. I know they are less expensive, and Eco-friendly. I am just not sure abut how much work they are. Also, are they all really big? I like how small the paper diapers are. I just really want Addy’s clothes to fit fine over the diapers. Do you use cloth diapers? Any brand suggestions?
Starting the No Cry Sleep Training method!
So last night was the first night keeping a sleep journal for Addy. In recent weeks she has gone from waking up once a night to 5 times, and it is really starting to wear me down. She is officially over her ear infection and the probiotic is doing its job, so we are going to get started! I am actually really excited to try this method. I am not really looking to sleep a straight 12 hours at...
Is that bananas???
I was getting the probiotic ready for Addy tonight and I started smelling bananas. I thought this was odd since the probiotic is supposed to be tasteless, so I smelled the packet just to see and it didn’t smell like anything. So I smelled the breastmilk I was getting ready to put it in and it had a super strong banana smell. I was so tempted to try it to see if it tasted like bananas, but...
Sippy cups are for teething right?
Since Addy has been having gas issues I called the doc and they said to give her a probiotic for a week to restore the good bacteria in her intestines. This is great and all, but how do you get a kid to take something that has to be mixed into food or drink when they will only nurse???? Apple Juice in a sippy cup! I got one of those Tommee Tippee ones that are supposed to be great for...
So over giving Addy Antibiotics
Since we are not 100% sure that she isn’t allergic to amoxicillin, they put her on a new drug this time. I think it is making her super gassy, which means she has been waking up 3-4 times each night to nurse. Luckily the last dose was today, but i am not sure how long the side effects will last. She seems so uncomfortable :( Is there anything I can do for her?
6 and 7 Months!
I thought I would have more time to post once school was over, but I find that I have even less time to get things done. This could be that May flew by in a wild haze and we were busy replacing our floors in June, but I feel like my time with you is just flying by. So month 6 brought many changes to our lives. I finished school and began my stint as a stay at home mom. At first I wasn’t...
