5 month 2 week old Brinley

This is a summary for Brinley’s 24th week–she was 23 weeks old.


Milk supply went back to normal once my period was over. 


This week, I added prunes at the beginning of the week. She LOVED them. Super loved.

At the end of the week, I added green beans. As with all vegetables thus far, she is just “eh” about them. 


Brinley still had some days that seemed to be impacted by some wonder week 26. The thing I have noticed is her having noisy transitions, even in the night. She will talk or “ehhhh….” at sleep transitions. Sometimes even cry. It lasts usually 1-2 minutes.

Brinley is just getting better and better at reaching out and grabbing things. This is always a slightly startling new skill–the baby used to be able to be held on your lap and anything in front of you was safe. Now it is not! Everything can be grabbed.

I think I forgot to mention that a couple of weeks ago I got out the Jumperoo. She loves it! She is figuring out how to jump in it. McKenna likes to stand in front of her and teach her how to jump by example 🙂

I also borrowed my neighbor’s ExerSaucer this week, and she loves that as well.

We continued transitioning out of the bassinet for naps this week. I moved her into the crib instead of the bassinet for her second nap. So she is taking her second and her third naps in the crib. She did well with it and seemed unphased.

I think Brinley got my very sore throat this week. She didn’t seem to feel well. Happily, she didn’t have it as long as I did. I had been sick and had tried so hard to not get her sick.

I wouldn’t kiss her face even when she leaned forward with the baby “open-mouthed kiss” (don’t you love those?). It was so hard to not kiss back! I made sure to wash my hands every time I touched her. But to no avail. At least she got over it quickly. And we are back to kissing 🙂

Our schedule typically looks like this:
7:30–feed with solids–2-4 T prunes and 2 T of oatmeal mixed in
11:30–feed with solids–4 T of pears and 2 T of oatmeal mixed in and 2 T of green beans with 1 T oatmeal mixed in
5:30–feed with solids–half a banana mixed with 2 T oatmeal and sweet potatoes (1-2 T) OR butternut squash (1-2 T)–we alternate every other day with squash and sweet potatoes.
7:30–feed, then bedtime. In bed by 8:00-8:10
