FF or EBF? How are things going? EBF, things are going great besides clogged ducts!
Any solids? We have tried a few things, apple, pears, peas, and mangoes. Not a fan of any, he even closes his mouth real tight so that I can't get the spoon in (does the same with the bottle, smart boy)! The only thing he likes is carrot sticks, he just chews on it!
How is baby sleeping? Not the best...
Biggest struggle? Def sleep! Hopefully I can get him to sleep one day...
Biggest success? Getting him to sleep on a flat surface, in the crib! He's still in the merlin suit which I am going to have to get him out of bc summer is coming and in WA we have no AC! Not looking forward to it.
Any AW moments you want to share? My little guy is such a talker, it melts my heart.
@katylou91 We are going to move her into her own room finally. I still nurse her to sleep so going to break that habit. Going to put her to bed tired but awake and let her FIO (suggested by pedi). She already STTN, it's a matter of how she gets to sleep now.
Yeah we tried a sleep sack, both times after a couple of hours of put down, wake up, repeat.... He will sleep two hours and He won't go back down... I hope he gets the sleep message soon bc last night he slept like crap in the suit
how old? 3.5 months FF or EBF? EPING how are things going? Amazing! I think we might be 1 and done because I don't think we can get this lucky again! Any solids? Too young still but thinking about a mix of purees and BLW when the time comes how is baby sleeping? Great! She sleeps 2 big naps. One in the morning and one in the afternoon usually 1-3 hours long. Sleeping one 6-8 hour stretch and one 4 hour strech at night. biggest struggle? F is working 3rd shift right now. He comes home from work and lays in bed all day trying to sleep. So not only do I have to do it all by myself all night, I have to do it all by myself during the day too. He only has 2 more weeks of it though. I can't wait to have some help again! Biggest success? Being able to EP for this long! It's really hard but breastfeeding was way harder for us. I am taking it one day at a time! I am not opposed to FF but I have an outrageous supply so I hate to stop just because it's hard.

How old is baby? 4.5 months
FF or EBF? How are things going? EBF. Going well, haven't had a supply issue yet. But starting daycare tomorrow, so we will see how pumping goes.
Any solids? Not yet
How is baby sleeping? Generally 6pm-6am with 2-3 wake ups: 11pm, 3am. Sometimes more or less.
Biggest struggle? Naps. It's so hard for me to tell during the day if he needs a nap or not since his schedule hasn't been consistent (but that's going to change with daycare). Sometimes I'm not sure when I put him down and he cries and cries if he really doesn't need a nap or he just needs to CIO. I've caved and picked him up before during an attempted nap and he stayed up and happy for 2 hours after... so it made me question everything.
Biggest success BFing for this long. And if it works out, being able to pump and provide him with BM while I'm working.
How old is baby? She will be 6 weeks on Monday, but was 5 weeks early
FF or EBF? How are things going? A combo of breastfeeding and pumping. It's going really well! She just doesn't like to stay up to eat at night. But when she eats, I can hear her actively swallowing a LOT, so maybe she's just a really effective nurser.
Any solids? Nope, too young.
How is baby sleeping? Better. She sleeps from about 10:30-1:45 at night, then sleeps until about 5:00, and then again to about 8:00. She still sleeps a TON during the day, but since she was so early, her adjusted age isn't even a week old yet. So I guess that much sleep is still somewhat normal.
Biggest struggle? She gets gassy at night. It's been better since we got some slow flow bottles and gas drops. She makes all sorts of noise at night, so it used to keep me awake. But I'm getting used to it and she's getting quieter.
Biggest success? She will sleep anywhere and through anything. I can put her in her swing, on a blanket on the floor, in her pack 'n play...she will sleep. Even if it's storming or people are around and loud...she sleeps. She still prefers to sleep snuggled up with one of us, and sleeps best that way, but that's normal.
Any AW moments you want to share? She's just super cute. And I love her to pieces.
