Well here it is – the 6 month review.
6 months have gone by now since the birth of baby girl. I can honestly say and I know my husband will agree with me that it’s been the best 6 months of our life.
She has brightened up our lives that no words can explain. Her smile is infectious, she is constantly happy all the time.
Even when she had the bad sniffles last week she would let out a beaming smile through the snot running out her nose!
If all babies were like her I would have lots!
So since her last 4 Month review a lot has gone on. The biggest milestone is that we have started on the weaning journey.
Her first tastes were just baby rice mixed with her booby milk. She just couldn’t get enough of that. Her little sounds she makes while she tastes the food are so cute. In between a hum and a mmmmmm!
Baby girl then tried some of Ella’s Kitchen carrot and rice with her milk. This was very pleasant with a rougher texture than pure baby rice.
When we got away from the baby rice stage we then tried just carrots. Nope not a lover of carrots. It ended up everywhere but her screwed up little mouth! She preferred parsnips to carrots. We have also tried sweet potato and peas too. Peas are a big hit! Got some lovely mmmmmm’s with that one.
We have tried some of the fruit purées as well while we have been out and about and the Aldi banana and apples pouch from the Mamia range is another great hit. It does taste nice as well. Might have had a sneaky taste of that one!
Well we have to know what are baby’s are eating don’t we!
So that’s our weaning journey so far.
We were lucky to be sent some of the Out of Date Mates to help remembering what we opened with the pouches and jars. They are so helpful and good for money saving as well.
I am heading back to work in 10 weeks so I’m beginning to slow down baby girls daytime feeds and replacing them with formula.
My aim is to breastfeed her mornings and evenings and supplement with some formula during the daytime as well as her little solids.
If I could have I would have stored expressed milk and built up a stack but I don’t overproduce milk no matter what I’ve tried to boost it. She just drinks it all.
So plan b was the formula for day time. She still won’t take a bottle so the formula feeds have been in a little beaker. Which she loves! We have a pink one for milk and a blue one for water.
The rolling over has been mastered, shuffling 360 degrees in progress along with moving backwards. Still yet to turn back over and crawl forwards! She loves to grab everything in sight, my glasses included.
Oh and is very interested in labels on things!
There you go the 6 month review. Pop back in a couple of months to see how we are doing at 8 months.
