Brett is almost 6 months old...tear :( He is really getting to be a
hand-ful arm-ful! He is so heavy and CANNOT SIT STILL! The kid is crazy...always arching his back, kicking, diving onto his stomach from sitting and banging on everything. He is sooooo busy he cant even stop to eat.
Im wondering if he is tired of nursing because he is so ADD it is a struggle to keep him latched on, and then to get him back on after he pulls off to look at (fill in the blank with anything that moves, makes a sound or sparkles) its another battle. Im not really ready to quit nursing, but this is getting frusturating.
He really isnt that much better with a bottle though...today he was more interested in playing with the bottle in his hands than sucking it. He was having a gay ol time squeezing the nipple and talking to it.
I read that after a growth spurt, babies eat less than they did during the growth spurt, and last week he was waking up a ton so maybe thats what is going on. Brett still nurses great at his 4am feeding (yes he still wakes up once to eat) but thats the only time. I think he is just becoming more aware of the world and is afraid to miss anything!
Speaking of not missing anything...he only naps 30 minutes at a time! He takes 4, 30 minute naps a day and if Im lucky, one will last 45 minutes! I read that "gifted" babies sleep less than other babies, so mine must be Albert freakin Einstein!
Speaking of sleeping....if we bring our baby into our bed every morning around 6 am and he sleeps with us until 7:30....does that make me a co-sleeper? Not that I care because that is the best part of my day! Brett will wake up around 6 and I will bring him into our bed and he goes right back to sleep and is such a good snuggler! He always wakes up talking with a huge smile. I dont think its a bad habit because he always goes to bed in his crib and sleeps there all night. One night, during a storm, he slept with us almost all night, but that was hard because I think I slept with one eye open all night...didnt want to smother him with my pillow!
Well thats all the random things I have for now! :)
