Pricey Nolan,

Right here we’re, one other three months since my final letter. Not an entire lot modified in your seventh month. You continued to do nicely with the system supplementing and we continued to attempt to get you to eat solids. The one factor I actually discovered that you simply appreciated this month was a Zucchini Peach Smoothie. You continued to sleep in our mattress, take naps each time and wherever I might match them in and be a usually glad child. 

baby 8 months

At first of August, you turned Eight months and received your first two tooth (on the underside) pretty shut collectively. You continued to crawl frequently, particularly in the direction of the canine’s water bowl. Apart from consuming pet food, which you like, you additionally began consuming strawberries and puffs. However that’s about it. You largely ate system and nursed frequently, together with a number of occasions per evening. 

You additionally appreciated standing at your music desk or holding onto folks’s fingers. You like your brother and sister and have undoubtedly began interfering with a few of their actions with their crawling.

At first of September, you had your 9-month appointment. This was the month the place loads of issues modified for you. At your appointment, you weighed 20 kilos, placing you within the 53rd percentile for weight, up from the third percentile at your 6-month appt. As with the earlier months since we began including system, you ate four or 5 (3oz) bottles per day and the remaining from nursing. You had been nonetheless not focused on solids and I even talked to a feeding therapist briefly to find out if I wanted to take any motion earlier than you turned one. She jogged my memory that you simply actually weren’t all that irregular, I used to be most likely simply evaluating you to your brother and sister who had been tremendous into strong meals. She inspired me to make it a objective to place you in your excessive chair with meals 3x a day, range the temps and textures, encourage you to get messy and likewise get a nuby brush to assist stimulate your gums.

Just about the subsequent week, you began to show the nook with meals a bit bit. You began really consuming some solids, together with Bamba peanut puffs, vanilla yogurt, Go Go Squeeze fruit and veggie pouches and a few Serenity Youngsters veggie pouches (i all the time put them in a bowl so you’ll be able to follow together with your spoon. Plus you’d sometimes eat some child cereal with fruit, pancake, and avocado. Proper close to the tip of the month you lastly ate what I might contemplate a full meal a couple of times. Feeding you has been loads of work and we’re actually nonetheless not over the hump, however we’re making progress and also you’re actually extra focused on strong meals now than you had been a number of months in the past so we’re simply going to maintain trucking alongside! Up to now week, you’ve undoubtedly hit a development spurt and I’ve began supplying you with a bit extra system and nursing you extra.

You proceed to be a reasonably glad child, so long as mama is round. You like standing and pull your self up on something you’ll be able to. You’ve additionally began taking some steps to maneuver sideways alongside couches and even a number of steps together with your little walker toy. You can too climb the steps, though mommy tries to maintain you off of them for essentially the most half so we don’t must take care of that but. I feel you’ll be strolling very quickly! You even have your high two entrance tooth SO CLOSE to coming in…however they’ve been SO CLOSE for over a month now and we’re nonetheless ready.

You’re nonetheless sporting dimension three diapers and largely 9 month garments. Some 12 month and some 6-12 month pants match. 

Your different large change this month was your sleeping association. You’ve been sleeping in our mattress because you had been born and this month I moved you to the pack and play in our room. You had been undoubtedly prepared and though you continue to don’t sleep by way of the evening, you began placing your self to sleep within the pack and play, waking up a number of occasions to nurse however then going proper again to sleep within the pack and play. 

After which yesterday, we moved you into your individual room! We took your sister out of the crib and gave her an enormous woman mattress and moved the crib into what was as soon as the visitor room and is now your room! I already miss you, however I feel it’ll be good so that you can have your individual house. You probably did nice your first evening within the crib. Cried for an hour, fell asleep sitting up for a bit bit after which slept nicely, waking up twice to nurse after which going again down simply earlier than getting up for the day at 5:45. Then you definitely took two naps within the crib- it’s good to have a darkish spot (due to the blackout curtains daddy hung) with a loud sound machine to place you for naps. 

My hope is that transferring you away from me, now that we had been each prepared, will allow you to begin to sleep longer stretches and as such, naturally begin the evening weaning course of. We’ll see the way it goes over the subsequent month or so!

Arduous to imagine you’ll be 10 months on Saturday.
