Oh my goodness, you guys!! Our little nugget is three months old!! It kinda came out of nowhere which is why this is late again. Life has been a whirlwind lately, but gah this cutie deserves a celebration post! She’s been such a trooper over the last month or so as we’ve been trying to figure out what’s going on with her. She would not be set down for anything. She slept ok at night, only waking once to eat. But, during the day, she would only be happy on your shoulder, bouncing, with a pacifier in her mouth, held in by your shoulder while you burped her. Then, 45 minutes later she would let out a belch and be happy for a couple of minutes, eat, fall asleep for 10 minutes, and the process would start all over.
When I reached out on Instagram for some suggestions a friend suggested gripe water. YOU GUYS. It worked almost immediately. She gets a little bit in each of her bottles throughout the day. Now when we go to burp her after the bottle, she burps immediately and will tolerate being set down for more than six seconds. I cried for like an hour after that first burp because I was so excited we’d figured it out. She is such a happy camper now!!
She has started cooing and smiling all the time now. She loves when we make popping noises or when E gives her kisses.
She’s getting the hang of her pacifiers and is still sleeping pretty well at night. She goes down right after E at about 7:30. She has slept through the night, but most nights she wakes up one time between 1-2 and goes right back down after and will sleep until we wake her up at 5:30 to get ready for the day. Her naps are all over the place, but she will usually take at least one good 2 hour nap!
She’s just the sweetest little baby! We love you, Claire!
