Sam & Suzy: This Week

This week was all about food!

Daycare told us that Sam was just fussy and hungry a lot. Most days he eats about every 2.5 -3 hours. Lately he's also been crying when he sees the other babies get solids. Which is funny because at home, Sam is happy eating about every 4 hours with veggies at dinner time. 

"Why don't you give him cereal? We have food here!" I didn't want to really start solid food with Sam so early...just ease him into it, but if he's crying at daycare for food, I don't want him hungry. My head was spinning. I think the main thing is that he sees the other kids and he's like, "Oh hey! I could go for some too."Thankfully, he had his 6 month check up coming up and we could talk to his doctor about the food situation.

Sam's doctor told us that it's ok to give him more food. We can work him up to 3 times a day. She said we don't need to give him cereal just yet, that the veggies we give him is fine. That made me feel better! So, right now Sam gets a veggie at daycare along with his bottles. We also are giving him a small bottle in the morning again. Already we see a big improvement! Sam doesn't need to eat right away at daycare and can wait about 3-4 hours between bottles. (although hello poops!)

And I know daycare provides baby food, but we'd like to make our own. I know Sam may not always be able to eat organic, but if it's easy for us to provide it, then why not? We enjoy making his baby food and I know that it'll help us eat more veggies. It's also much cheaper right now than buying jars and such. (again thank you Sendi for getting us the baby bullet!!)

Hello little tooth! Yep, one of Sam's bottom teeth finally broke through! I can't wait for it to be totally out and see it when he smiles. It's funny to see Sam play with his tooth. His little tongue rubbing against it, chewing on his lip and fingers.

Ok, I know I have a sensitive stomach. I watch what I eat, I stay away from certain foods and I eat smaller portions. Lately though, it's been so grumbly! I think it may be hormones if that makes sense. It's also my pants, because even though they fit, when I sit, it's presses tight right on my lower tummy. But what can I do? I'm tired of wearing maternity pants that I have hold up with the belly band because they are too big otherwise. Being in this inbetween is kind of annoying.

FOOD!!! Aghhh.... so confusing! I am trying really hard to be laid back about everything and just go with the flow. But it's hard, right? As mamas, we can't even bear the thought of our babies being hungry. Roman gets 2.5 ounces of a fruit or veggie in the morning and 2 ounces of cereal before bed. As much as I might worry about starting him too early, allergies, etc. I feel like I have to trust my gut. Also, he is definitely sleeping better!!! So, there it is.

Also, on a random note, OMG, my stomach has been so grumbly lately too. I have no clue what is going on.... Weird!
