Well, its certainly been a while since my 4 months update. Gone are the newborn days where you could do things whilst they slept most of the day. I’m now lucky enough to eat in the time he’s napping. But since George is S E V E N months old today (where is the time going ahhhh) I thought I’d do a little update.
George is in his cot in his own bedroom now and is still sleeping through most nights. It was quite a smooth transition into his own room. I gave him his last feed of the night one night and just put him in his cot to see how he got on. He was absolutely fine though. It was me that struggled. He kept turning over and sleeping on his front and I kept panicking, waking up every few hours and checking on him. He’s doing so well though.
In A Routine
George is in more of a routine now than he ever has been. He wakes up at 7am everyday, goes down for a nap between 9-10am, goes down for another nap around about 1-2pm and then has a bath and bed between 6.30-7pm. Like last time he’s kind of picked that routine and it suits him and us.
Being nearly 6 weeks premature, something that always sticks in the back of my mind is “is he developing well”. The truth is, every baby is different and develops at different times and stages in their life anyways, so I’m slowly trying to not worry as much about what he’s doing. But he is doing incredibly well.
At 7 months he can now sit up and just recently he’s started pushing up whilst on his front as if he’s going to crawl (ahhhhh) so we don’t think it’ll be long before he’s doing that. He actually plays with his toys now by himself, reaches out and grabs things and has much more control over his hands.
Still teething, still no teeth. Its so hard seeing him in pain so much of the time with them, I really hope some come through soon. Right now it seems like Anbesol is our best friend.
This one is going well too. He’s still on purees at the moment but we’ll start to introduce different foods probably this month or next. George has liked everything that we’ve given him so far which is great.
I decided to buy a load of pouches from the supermarket first and see what he likes and doesn’t like and then I can make the stuff at home that he does like. This has been the best way for us to do it as we don’t normally eat some of the stuff we’ve given him.
I am looking forward to us all sitting down together soon though and all eating the same meals.
Hope you enjoyed my 7 months update on George. You can keep up to date with us more regularly over on my Instagram.
