Sweet Stuff

I just spent the last hour looking through old posts about X-man trying to find out what kind of sleeping schedule he was on when he was the same age Buttercup is now.

I didn't really find what I was looking for, but this is what I found:

-At 6 months, I was still nursing X-man at 3am. I am so glad that Buttercup sleeps until 5am!

-X-man took really short naps just like Buttercup is taking short naps now. Only difference in the two kiddos is that I couldn't get X-man to sleep in his crib. Buttercup does much better with that.

-X-man's baby pictures look so much like Buttercup! What sweet little kids I have!

I did find out that we would bathe X-man at 7 and feed him after that. Buttercup seems to like her evening nap around 7 so we might start with that same schedule for her.

And for about two weeks now, she's been taking a bottle all day with the exception of 5am. I was having some pain and cracking issues during nursing (silly girl with the lazy latch) so I decided to give her a bottle and just pump afterwards. I'm pumping massive amounts of milk (for me at least...in my blog reminiscing I found that I was doing good to pump a half-ounce with X-man and I can pump 7 or 8 ounces at one sitting!). She's been taking a 7 ounce bottle 4 times a day plus her baby food at breakfast, lunch and dinner. I'm not quite ready to wean her totally. I am just too lazy to fix a bottle (even just to pull it out of the fridge...she drink it ice cold!) at 5am.

When she gives up the 5am snack we'll reevaluate the situation...
