At this rate she'll 1 in a couple of months! I mean, I'll have to start planning her first birthday relatively soon because with all of the holidays coming up it'll be here before I know it. I'm already feeling the need to put it off just so I can stay in denial about her growing up! She started sleeping in her crib last night (in another room!) because she can sit up on her own now if someone holds her legs down, so it won't be long before she can do it without assistance. Once she's sitting upright, she can pull herself to standing, so her bassinet is no longer safe.

awe it is such a big step when they move into their own room. And I totally see the safety side of it. kudos though for lasting 6 months lol. We lasted all of 3 weeks before moving him into his nursery

I think they told us at the hospital they recommend room sharing for the first year, but our room isn't big enough for our king size bed and anything larger than the bassinet, which can easily be moved out of the way so we can open our closet doors, so crib it was. It wasn't so bad, but it was really weird going to bed with her not in the room. If she fell asleep elsewhere I would always sleep in the same room on a chair or something until she woke up.

yea. there were nights when Sweets was having a rough time that either dh or I would end up sleeping on the bed in his nursery (he has a twin bed in his room along with his crib).

Poor Sylvie! She had a runny nose when I picked her up from day care yesterday. She was all congested by the evening and had goopy eyes and nose. Then we went to the ENT doctor and got confirmation she did have a tongue tie, so we had that clipped while we were there. Her latch is so much better now! Hopefully things will pick up in the supply department.

Due to her stuffy nose she couldn't nurse well last night and kept crying, poor thing. Add to that still having some of the gas issues from the antibiotics I was on for mastitis and she had another rough night last night. I wonder how long that should last now that I've finished my prescription? She's been increasingly gassy since I started the antibiotics, but it was hard to tell if it was less of an issue last night than the previous night with her poor nose.

She had a yummy dinner of pureed honeycrisp apples and a steamed green bean (which she mostly just played with) after she ate last night, followed by a big blowout diaper and bath time, which she loved! I couldn't stay dry with all of the splashing she was doing. I put some infant chest rub on her chest, feet, and back last night after her bath and used some nasal drops in her nose to help loosen things up so she could eat. I had to use the nasal drops once more in the middle of the night, too. Hopefully tonight she'll be in better shape, but if not, I may take her in a warm shower with me tonight with some Vick's and see if it helps. Anybody have any tips? Are there any essential oils I can use in a diffuser in her room to help? I know I have lavender, peppermint, sandalwood, and tea tree oils.

I haven't been posting in a while...

Lenora - we turned on hot water and let the bathroom fill with steam and stood with her in the steam for a while. Then saline and nose frida. Then eucalyptus essential oil in the diffuser and elevating the head. We had a wedge pillow that went under crib sheet.

Thanks, Mrs. MB! Good to see you!

We've still got some congestion going on and a little bit of a runny nose occasionally, but thankfully her symptoms never got any worse. It doesn't seem to disturb her sleep (unless that's actually waking her up at night and not hunger/wanting me) or her nursing, so I'm thankful for that. We do have the wedge in the crib and I ended up using lavender, sandalwood, and tea tree oils in the humidifier/diffuser.

Sylvie nearly crawled last night! She got her knees up under her several times, but dropped back down on her belly a few seconds later. Any day now... Time to get those babyproofing things installed!

I hope everyone is doing well.
