Sebbie - 7 Months

I cannot believe my little baby is now going to turn 7 months on Sunday. He is growing up way too fast! So fast I haven't written any progress notes like I originally intended. Better late than never eh? So now he's at his 7th month and just 5 weeks ago he weighed 8.956 kgs - no doubt he well over 9 now -  we shall find out tomorrow at his weigh in!

DIET: Sebbie started solids on April 20th (23 Weeks) with just Bellamys Organic rice cereal but he didn't like it all. We tried for three days and err gave up. His vegetable puree is only organic now and Im trying to keep it this way until he turns 1 unless its unavoidable.
 His list of rejected foods is high - sweet potato,carrot, zucchini, spinach, apple. To show how much he disliked carrots, he actually cried this pitiful cry and threw the carrots at me.  He loves the sweet stuff - Purple Carrot, Banana, Avocado, Butternut Pumpkin.  And he loves drinking water from a sippy cup! He is still breastfed and his schedule is still about 3-4 hourly during the day. He goes to sleep about 8-9 pm (we try from 7.30 pm during his last feed and after his bath) has a feed about midnight-2am and another feed about 6-8 am.

SLEEP: He is a terrible sleeper period. He naps anywhere between 30 mins to 2 hours (few and far between). I count myself lucky if he has more than a day nap. He's also incredible FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) and gets distracted and absolutely refuses to sleep when we are out. We moved him to his own room a couple of weeks ago and he's slept a little bit better (less noise and intrusion from us) but still has a couple of feeds a night.

TEETH: Sebbie has 6 teeth now! He cut his bottom two on the 25th of April (24 Weeks) and the top 4 on the 28th of May. (28 Weeks and 4 days) All I can say is the teeth majorly upsets him. I know friends whose bubs get a runny nose and perhaps a bit of a temp or just looks flushed a few days prior. Sebbie moans and screams in pain. All. Night. Long. And not just one night and not just the first set. He has this for pretty much 80% of the two weeks prior to the lil toothies emerging. I did administer panadol but usually only half a dose and after 1 am so we can all sleep. Or else he would scream and I will be nursing every 1.5 hours or so.
SICK: Sebbie also had his first bout of illness - gastro/stomach virus on the 24th of May (Week 28). Poor bub screamed n screamed all night. Panadol helped a bit and he had diarrhea all day long. 

MOBILITY: Still on fours and moving way more now. He can support stand on furniture though he can't quite muster the strength to get up on his own. He started sitting on his own on the 29/4 (24 weeks 3 days) and does a combo of commando crawl/real crawling and jumping crawl to get to where he wants. He has started his second term at Gymbaroo and swimming and loves both! He has playdates most days and love going to Mothers Group as much as I do!

Mummy loves you so so much and can't believe how quickly you are growing up. Missing your little baby days but can't wait to see what's in store for you either - dilemma!
