Cooper has started waking 3 times between me going to bed and getting up which is better than he was doing but not as good as when he was just getting up once a night. Yesterday he only needed 2 baths whereas the day before it was 4 because sometimes when he is sick there is too much to wipe him clean. I hope this faze won't last much longer.
Oh, tiring! Markus woke twice again between 7pm and 7.30am. And I'm feeling so much better.
I've bought him a high chair today. If anyone needs it, it is on offer in a flash sale and you get it for £19.99. Just use voucher code BOUNTYSEP13
How is everyone doing? Any updates?
Lou is now almost 22 weeks old. He was last weighed about 2 wks ago and was 18lb bang on. He attempted to roll a few weeks back, did it 3 times and has not bothered since. His new trick is making a high pitched screaming sound which he loves so much he does it all the time and has just started to sit withou being held up. He only lasts a few minutes without wobbling but is getting better. He now hates lying down an wants to be looking at everything. He still has trouble napping in the day. We usually get a few small naps totalling 2.5-3hrs a day occassionally we will have a mammoth nap though.
He's eating 8oz at most feeds and his tongue seems to now be totally freed. Yay
We think he is teething as he is getting quite fussy, chewing on his bottle teat and refusing milk a couple of times a day. I have tried bongella (?) but he hates the taste and granular but that's like rubbing sand into his gum. We have tonnes of teething rings but not sure they are helping much. Any advice on how to survive? His sleep is getting mucked up which is a massive pain as he doesn't sleep a lot during the day. How long does it last? One mum told me it will be constant for a year!!!!!! Surely she was just joking???
How is everyone? All going ok here.
Markus was hit by the 4 month sleep regression and ha been in it since the start of
September so I'm starting to sleepwalk during the day as I'm so tired! He wakes anything from between 2-7 times a night. But every time he eats so he does wake up hungry. He is starting to outgrow his 6-9 month outfits so I think he's growing quick!
Zfbaby, Markus also is teething bad and chomping away on anything he can get in his mouth. We found Anbesol liquid works ok. It's only sold behind the counter so you'll have to ask for it. I got it at tesco pharmacy.
I hope he starts sleep better soon too.
Markus was crazy restless during the day as well so I started him on some cereal and he loves it and was super relaxed during the day and had 3 great naps!
Hope everyone else is ok too x
CJ is 18lbs too but he is slimming out which is making my nappies have a awkward fit again. His front two bottom teeth are now visually through and a couple at the bottom to the sides you can feel are pretty much through. He is not sleeping as well on a night now and naps are just fully dependent on how bad his teething it. He is rolling fine from his front to his back but when he tried from his back to his front he gets stuck on his side but I don't think it will be too much longer. He is also now clearly in love with his big brother, he just stares at him and smiles so much.
CJ started teething at 6 weeks old and some days are better and some are worse. Teething gel and teething rings only go so far for him really but on the very worst nights he has had Calpol. I don't really like giving it to him but there were a few nights when he really needed it.
Awwww Markus is obsessed with Marielle too. He loves watching her and giggles his head off!
It's funny about the rolling as I just read babies roll from tummy to back first, but Markus has been rolling from back to tummy for over a month now, but can't do tummy to back? It wakes him up at night when he's stuck on his tummy lol
