Funny how babies are similar in their habits and so different at the same time. Like the feeding. Like you, I have trouble getting Cayley to feed, but she is the other way around and wants more later in the day!
Sorry to hear about Brandon's reflux. About 4 of the babies in our antenatel group have got it, a couple of them are really bad.
Like Brandon, Cayley's hands are facinating to say the least. She also like to stare at her feet in the bath. Just about got soaked last night, thought splashing around was a great idea! What does Brandon think of water? Cayley's favourite would have to be showers with Daddy - never wants to get out!
Cayley has also been having teething problems - I wish that they would come through, then at least the pain would go away. Have got all the usuals in stock (Bonjela, Pamol + even some homeopathic stuff)
Solids - Cayley hates the rice cereals, have tried plain and flavoured. I think she can smell it, because if she sees it coming, she won't open her mouth. Have tried her on a couple of the tins of fruit, went sort of OK, but by far, the most successful has been vegetables, especially potatoes. I cooked up a couple, processed them and the froze in ice cube trays. I just mixed them with a little formula to thin the mixture out.
Like you, Cayley is my first - what a shock to the system and a HUGE learning curve. All of a sudden, I don't have time to do things, although its amazing what you can accomplish when they are asleep! Would love more, but I think we'll stop at two though. A frien visited yesterday and mentioned that she was pregnant with no.2, Hubby said after she left - I spose you want another one now - my reply - would love one except for the credit card debt! Get rid of that and there will be no stopping me! Looking at going back to work soon just to work on that. Trying to get night work so I don't have to put Cayley in Day Care - probably selfish, but I want to spend as much time as I can (don't want to miss anything!)
Anyway - enough of me - only turned the computer on to check the email, found one from Huggies and couldn't resist replying!
Well, time to go and do some more of that neverending pile called washing (half my own fault cause Cayley is wearing cloth nappies!)
