I need help. We have been following Babywise since month 1. It has worked well for us and Max and Claire have been sleeping through the night since month 3 (our main goal for starting babywise.)
This is our current schedule
6am wake up
7am bottle then play
they usually nap 1.5 hrs and if they wake up early, we go for a walk in the neighborhood
11am baby food (cereal and fruit), then bottle
Play til about 12:45/1 then go down for a nap
3pm bottle only
play and meet friend at park for a walk
they may or may not take a nap...if they do, it is usually a 45 min cat nap
6:30ish pm start baby food (veggies and cereal) , bath, then bottle
7:15pm songs and bed
So I guess my question is - When do you feed your solids? right after bottle, before bottle, an hour after bottle/breast feeding? I know we need to do what is best for us, but I just want to hear what others are doing or did.
I feel like we are in a rut. Yesterday we went to the park for a walk and I decided to stop at the swings. Max has been on the swing once before, but this was Claire's first time. They both loved it!! If I would have remembered sunscreen, we would have stayed longer...we will definitely do that again!
Yesterday was also their first time taking a big girl/big boy bath! We have still been bathing in the sink...more for convenience for me. Their splashing has gotten out of control so it was time for the bath tub.
However, I forgot to buy a bath mat so they won't slip and Max still doesn't sit unsupported for long periods of time so I put their bumbo seats in the tub.
They had a great time! It was a bit difficult for me by myself, but will be much easier and more fun when Justin is there to help.
Hopefully our computer will keep trucking along a little longer! I tried some cleanup and it seems to have helped a little.
