Pram issues

Fernandito hates the pram. I guess he hates lying down, not seeing properly, the toy above moving and he unable to touch it…I tried to lift the carrycot base higher, still…he gets MAD. I put in baby carrier and we get a happy baby. But the sun is starting to get pretty strong and I shouldn’t really expose him that much.

Should I switch the carrycot for the sport chair? Usually it is from six months on but it has few reclining positions so i could try. I feel as if I bought the stroller in vain.

Should I let him cry it out in the pram and see if he falls asleep? Or should I wait it out until he can sit? 

I’m really bad at letting him cry…the carseat is the same problem…stressful!

…I found out I was pregnant 🙂

4months update

Fernandito will be 4months on Saturday. Today was our check up. He weighs 7kg, measures 65cm and is teething! OMG! That is why all the slobbery chewing irritable madness lately!

After his cold his sleeping went back to 3hrs intervals at night, during the day he only naps in my arms. Sometimes at night I need to have him quite a while in arms.  By 4am he wants to talk and play! Oh my, when he will sleep longer and when he will nap on his own?!

He grabs things very well, puts them in his mouth and sucks and chews like crazy, poor fella, his first bottom tooth is coming out. He raises his arms to be lifted, he gives me cuddles and kisses with his mouth open on my cheeks and squeezes me.

He laughs, he makes singing noises, he mumbles, he screams with joy, he is darling and entertainer. He is getting better at playing on his own, he recognizes people around him and not to everyone he smiles and opens arms. He is very observing and likes to go out and see people. He doesn’t get scared so much by loud noises, however, the dog bark still makes him jump.

During the day we are purely bfeeding and at night he gets a bottle of formula. Sometimes, he prefers me than the bottle and sometimes bottle wins, but only at night time.

He needs to be walked around, sing to and moved some way to fall asleep.
It’s a hard job with 7kg baby, trust me, I’m growing big guns 😀

For the past two weeks I’m religiously going to the gym at 7am. I’ve lost a lot, I don’t know exactly how much, but my fat roll is significantly smaller and I definitely feel tighter. I’m very tired, my body hurts and I’m asleep by 9pm every night.Mind you, I have a night nurse to help me, so I can do that, else I do not think I would be able to. But I am so ever grateful.

We are also moving by the end of the month, right before my birthday to a bigger house with a garden. So busy times ahead.

Also planning to visit my family in November, excited about that a lot!!!

Well beeps, 8:48pm for me here now so I’m going to brush my teeth and get my beauty sleep….that is if baby boy won’t cry. I always get up when he gets upset for whatever reason. Now we have the teething season, so let see.
