This is a summary for Brinley’s 30th week. She was 29 weeks old.
Nursing continued on as usual.
Oh she was grumpy this week! Just not happy for long with toys, getting upset when I walked out of sight…I wondered if it was a wonder week, but I never did get around to looking it up, so I am unsure. She was also STILL teething.
She also stopped rolling this week (from tummy to back). I had her on the wood floor and she isn’t graceful about it yet, so she bonked her head rolling over a couple of times and then gave it up.
But she did start rolling to her tummy during sleep sometimes…and go back to her not rolling over anymore and we have an issue. She won’t put her head to the side and lay down; she tries to sleep on her face. That of course makes you a bit nervous! Right now, we are rolling her back to her back.
She went swaddle-free for her third nap and did great! I was going to take this arm nice and slow like I did the first, but…
She woke the next morning with both arms out and was fine, so I decided to go cold turkey. We just stopped swaddling all together. She has done great with it! We are officially swaddle free! Since I have been analyzing and watching for signs for dropping since last October, I am so glad to have that behind me and out of my head.
This week, we added carrots to her diet. I wouldn’t say she LOVES them, but she did eat them without any fruit added, so I would say she likes them. Notice our solids food change in the evening in the listed schedule; I started her getting solids with her third nursing instead of in between the nursings.
I gave her her first wagon wheel this week. She definitely loves that. She bites off pieces, and then she would gag. Not for the faint of heart! She figured it out, though.
8:00–feed with solids–2-4 T prunes and 2 T of oatmeal mixed in–a few days we did 2 T yogurt here
