6 months with our smiley person! The 1st calendar year is just outrageous. You are hectic hitting all the milestones, but then all of a unexpected you’re presently halfway to their initial birthday. It’s been an amazing thirty day period with Cam. He’s changing each day and we’re so grateful to be in a position to commit all our times with him looking at him mature. He truly is the happiest child.
New At 6 Months
So a lot of new points at 6 months outdated! Cam is so interactive and loves to be with us. The way he smiles and laughs, grabbing and keeping all the issues, participating in with his toys, we received a whole blown kid these times, lol. He commenced solids and he’s been experiencing the system. I’ll share much more down down below. He’s even now sleeping by the night time like a champ, although his nap agenda is a scorching mess (see beneath). In normal we’re just noticing how chill he is. We considered Harper was a tranquil infant, but I imagine he will take the cake on this a person. He’s also Super smiley. Like he smiles all day very long. Even with his lack of rest for the duration of the working day, he’s this kind of a joyful camper when he’s up.
Heaps of queries on rolling. Camden has not rolled more than nevertheless, but we type of did numerous matters that genuinely prevented him from rolling. He experienced/has a flat head so he did not invest a whole lot of time on his back again when he was younger. That additionally shelling out a ton of time in the Merlin Sleep Fit did not enable. We go to bodily treatment, so we’re undertaking a great deal of workout routines to assist with this, but I’m not far too anxious.
As described earlier mentioned, Camden’s naps are a nightmare appropriate now. Causes I’m not likely crazy – we have a nanny, he’s a pleased and articles person even when he does not nap, and he sleeps by the evening. So technically, it’s not awful. But, we have tried out a lot less awake time, far more awake time, all while adhering to his age-proper wake home windows and we can not seem to be to get regular naps above 40 minutes. Right here and there he’ll nap for 1 hr 30 minutes, or a few of situations he’s napped for 2 several hours, but I cannot find a rhythm. An individual in my DM’s reminded me that when they commenced solids, it was a good deal for their newborn, just going as a result of a ton developmentally, so naps were shit. Harper was a good napper, sleeper all close to, so this has been so unique. I will carry on to hold you posted and share if we uncover anything that works for us. We did shift him into this slumber sack, which might have one thing to do with the adjust in his sleep. TBD…
We’re predominantly still nursing 5 instances a working day. Depending on my timetable (if I’m out and about) or how very long Cam has napped, we occasionally will do 4 feeds. We’re also executing purees and a bit of BLW. I like to feed Cam solids in the mornings to support with his poop. I just really feel like there is plenty of poop explosions when you begin solids and I would fairly offer with any mess in the course of the working day than at night time. I like to do 2 classes of purees and then we’ll do some BLW in the evenings when we’re having meal.
We’re at present pureeing our personal little one food thanks 1000% to our nanny. With that being explained, feeding Camden has not been the least difficult with feasible food items sensitivities and allergies. He’s been getting delayed vomiting so in some cases it’s tough to know what’s not sitting down perfectly with him. And I would despise to be providing him items which is making him unwell. It is been a bit stress filled. We’re planning to get him into allergy screening before long. So far we have tried:
I will retain you posted on this total process when we dive further.
Now that Cam is awake extended, it feels like he can do so a great deal far more. Plenty of tummy time and flooring exercise routines from his bodily therapist. He’s also nursing and taking in solids, which can take a fantastic amount of time. He’s paying out time in his Joovy walker (which he enjoys). We also recently bought him the Jolly Jumper. We’re training sitting down as significantly as attainable. He absolutely loves enjoying with Harper, or I need to say, remaining entertained by her. I gotta say, I Really like when Harper performs with Cam and they’re the two laughing and having so significantly entertaining with each other.
Bedtime hasn’t altered much. Soon after his previous nap we’ll hold him up for about 1.5-2hrs. We’ve dropped the cat nap. I’ll begin his bedtime routine 40 minutes or so just before bedtime, which features a feed just before mattress. We’ll change his diaper, get his pajamas on, set on his eczema creams, then commence his feed. Immediately after he’s carried out feeding on, we’ll do a pair of textbooks just so he has some time to digest his milk. I’ll turn the audio equipment on, place him in his swaddle and into the crib, and convert off the lights. He’ll rest from 6:30/7pm to about 6:30/7am.
I gave an update on Camden’s eczema a few months in the past on Instagram Tales, but I want to make absolutely sure I share an update listed here as very well. We went to the skin doctor in early May well and discovered out Camden’s cradle cap was in fact eczema. His eczema all above his body was definitely bad and infected. The defm recommended us a concoction of 3 points – an antibiotic, steroid, and humidity cream, all of which you mix alongside one another. I hadn’t listened to of this nonetheless, so when I received residence I did some investigate. Immediately after reading up on it and speaking with a number of viewers in my DMs, I felt a large amount far better about it. We have been actually towards having to vacation resort to any type of steroid, but we had been at a stage where by it was so terrible we understood we had to get it less than handle. This concoction was launched by Dr. Aron in the United kingdom. If you google him, you can browse additional about it. After we started out the program, Camden’s eczema cleared up in 2 times. It was night time and working day. We are however heading to get him analyzed for allergic reactions to see if we can help in far more all-natural ways. We’re presently only utilizing the concoction in his worst 3 places or with any flare ups.
