Cereal and sleep

Our daughter keeps waking up in the wee morning hours. Last night she woke up at 3:30a.m. just as happy as can be. Typically we can rock her back to sleep but this morning Constance would not have any of it. My wonderful husband got her up for me, cleaned out her nose and changed her diaper. Then once I was done feeding her, he bundled her for me (he is an excellent bundler).

A few people have suggested we start feeding her cereal at night and that may help her sleep through the night. While we might start that once she turns four months old we will probably hold off on other baby food till she is five months or even 6 months. Part of our reasoning is that we are delaying getting the baby her shots. Since I strictly breastfeed her then she can still remain relatively healthy. I also have no idea how to begin feeding her cereal and other baby food. I am sure I can research it online but I will see if her doctor has any information on it.

I still hold to the fact that we have a great baby. She is laughing so much more now and that is such an awesome sound.

  1. If I am an awesome husband then you are an amazing mother. You are the main source of love and affirmation that she gets throughout her day. You play with her, teach her things, and are just an all around great mom and wife (God hooked me up with a frugal woman! Yeah cloth diapers!). I love you.
