Sleeping and Eating: Gavin is still on his own set schedule and sleeps pretty well during the night. Typically he wakes up between 3am-5am for his nightly feeding, and is up for the day between 6:30am and 8:30am. He’s taking less naps during the day that are a bit longer, and overall I feel like he’s doing well in this area. Our little munchkin eats 5-6 ounces per feeding and eats every few hours. As of this month, he started refusing to breastfeed. 🙁 I feel a bit rejected because I’m still producing milk, but my supply has decreased. My guess is that he’s just not getting enough when he’s nursing, so he doesn’t want me. 🙁 Makes me sad, but not much I can do. A few days after he turned 4 months old we tried rice cereal, but I’m saving those updates for next month. 🙂
Likes and Dislikes: As I mentioned, he no longer likes to breastfeed. 🙁 He does like to cuddle with me though and that makes me happy. He loves to play on his activity mat and also likes swinging in his swing. His favorite toy right now is a musical Baby Einstein turtle. He likes to blow bubbles with his spit and make “k” sounds. He loves when you say “green” and thinks it’s hilarious. Lol. Singing “You Are My Sunshine” always calms him down, and lately I’ve been singing Christmas songs to him (very fitting, no?). This month we went to one of Keith’s softball games and Gav enjoyed watching daddy. 🙂 Overall, he is such a happy kid and a huge blessing to us. His 5th month update might be a tad different since he is sort of being a wild child…I’ll explain later! 🙂
I’d also like to mention that Gavin is teething pretty badly now and it makes him very fussy. 🙁 I hate that he has to go through this, but it’s pretty much a necessity for him to have teeth. *sigh* Any advice ladies??
