I couldn't believe it. And she didn't really ask what Falon's sleep habits are like - because they're usually pretty good and if she wakes up in the middle of the night there's a REASON. Barring last week, she doesn't wake up just to fuss, or just to hang out with us. She wakes up because she's hungry or wet.

Thank you. I was trying to get a picture of her sweater this morning and she sort of slumped over so she could stare at...something. Probably a dog. Lol.

My Mom put me on a leash when I was a toddler and I would have no reservations about putting Falon on one. Toddlers are super fast AND they have poor recalls.

I was very tempted to use a leash on Cian...hell I still am and he is 6!!! He is just VERY much in his own world and does not hear you unless you have his full attention. He also likes to wander and pays no attention to where he is or where he is going. Luckily he always loved being worn so if he started getting too wandery I would just throw him on my back or in the stroller if I had one. He never really pushed walking as he enjoys being held or confined as I think it lets his imagination go even freer.

Until Winnie has a better recall than Doom, there will be leashes.

Everleigh has her 4 month appointment on Thursday and I know I'll be getting the talk about solids and sleep too. I just smile and nod then go home and carry on. She's 19.6lbs and clearly not lacking.

Falon is adorable!!!!!

Wait, don't most pediatricians recommend solids at 6 months now?

Lillian slept in her bassinet from 11-7 again. I got 7 straight hours sleep for the first time in like 5 months . And I had a spa day with my mom and stepsister yesterday...massage, sauna, steam room, etc. I feel so great

They just changed the recommendation to four months. But our previous ped said that we shouldn't feed fruit or vegetables before six months so....yeah. I guess we could have fed her rice cereal but have you looked at that stuff? Looks gross. Personally, I feel that babies will let you know when they want to eat solids. But it is fun to watch Falon make "OMG your poisoning meeeeeeee" faces.

Wait WHAT??? Are you serious???

That really disturbs me honestly. It used to be 4-6 months but with all the research and studies 6 months became the absolute youngest. Can't believe they changed the recommendation BACK to 4. So dangerous.

Ok, well, hmm....found this on their site

How long should I breastfeed my baby?
The AAP recommends that babies be exclusively breastfed for about the first 6 months of life. This means your baby needs no additional foods (except Vitamin D) or fluids unless medically indicated. Babies should continue to breastfeed for a year and for as long as is mutually desired by the mother and baby. Breastfeeding should be supported by your physician for as long as it is the right choice for you and your baby.

I'm super confused. My ped said that they had just changed to rec back to 4 months, but I didn't bother to check it out because I wasn't going to do it. That's...disturbing.

I asked my local moms group as many there have much younger babies and newborns. None of them had heard of it being changed back, just some Drs still giving the outdated months and some sites giving the old advice.

Weird.
