Nursing is still going well.
Since I dropped the dreamfeed, I pump before I go to bed to store up milk. Yes, that is annoying :). But I don't think it will be something I regret ever.
Sleeping is going well. She is sleeping through the night and napping well. Sometimes she woke up mid-nap, but after talking to herself for a while (about 15 minutes), she went back to sleep.
We didn't start any new foods this week. She started to get a little rash, and I am wondering if it is because of Avocado. It just seems odd to me that she could be allergic to it, but I think she might be. I have taken her off of it to see if the rash stops returning. It was there, gone, there, and now gone. I am using lots of of Butt Paste at every diaper change :)
I did start a finger food. I just did a wagon wheel (by Gerber). It is basically a flavored toy for her :)
DROPPING THE THIRD NAP
I don't know if McKenna was really dropping her third nap or not. She was doing about a one hour nap every other day (two hour the other days), but the last few days she is still asleep after two hours. I am wondering if the disrupted third nap was due to her developmental leap rather than being ready to drop the third nap.
I am continuing to move things back slowly before the time change, but I can't change her much more than she is since it would conflict with the other children too much. I am also going to stop posting how much of each food she eats. I think too many people are worrying over it :):
8:20--wake, nurse, eat (prunes or peaches and oatmeal)
12:20--wake, nurse, eat (green veggie and applesauce. I was also doing avocado here, but have since stopped it. I will start again if the rash is attributed to something else)
4:30--wake, nurse, eat (orange/yellow veggie, bananas or pears)
7:50--wake, nurse, pjs, story, bed
McKenna's favorite books right now are pretty much any book. But she does especially love
Touch and Feel Books.
