Arthur was managing to self soothe to sleep. However, he started teething (he is a late teether - first tooth finally emerged about 3 weeks ago!) and since then I have to cuddle him to sleep. He needs the comfort. As he is a late teether I am sure all of his teeth are on the move poor little man.
We have both decided that next year we will start ttc for baby no.2. I'm both excited and nervous. I am going to start taking folic acid and vitamin D from about September / October this year so that it builds up and fx it doesn't take as long this time!
I am so proud of my little man, he is falling asleep on hid own. Thanks to the internet, I took advice from another mom and did Stay by sleeping method. I had to stay with him till he fell asleep. Every 3 days make a distance. Tonight I will be standing at the door and hopefully next week I can close the door and leave him alone. Such a releave I am so happy and my back is not so achy any more.
Congrats on your first tooth.
Bronsen is doing ok with his teething. he just cries a bit more when the tooth is coming out. Even I saw some blood. He is not interested in any chewing rings, he likes organic walnuts in shell and a teeth massage stick. and of course he chews his bed. I am planing to put some baking soda cos he won't listen. At this time 4 teeth are growing at the same time.
He started to walk at 12,5 months. He was falling al lot, but in 2 weeks he really made a big improvement. Even our furniture has no sharp corners, he did fell and hit his head couple of times. So please be careful, it is a critical moment for the child's safety.
He is gagging himself putting his figer in his throat, didn't throw up yet, I am sure he wants attention, so i don't respond to his trick.
I am very happy for you about your decision TTC again. I wish you short and calm journey this time.
Is he interested in fingerfood?
Good luck with the weaning Fliss. Have loads of fun trying out different foods. Arthur's first favourite food was banana and he still loves it. When we are in the supermarket and we go past the bananas he goes nannan yum yum! So adorable! Arthur loves food he can eat with his fingers. He has used a spoon a few times but I think it will be awhile before he masters that one.
