Rosie’s 16 Week Update…

Feeding
Rosie has Nutramigen formula (prescription for cows milk protein allergy) she has about 5-6oz every three hours. She has infant Gaviscon added to every feed due to reflux. Β I was advised that because she has reflux she could start weaning at 17 weeks but I don’t feel she’s ready yet. I would prefer to wait until I feel she is ready as the infant Gaviscon seems to be helping (touch wood!)

Sleeping

Rosie goes to bed at 7pm and self settles (she has naturally fallen into this, no sleep training) she usually wakes around 5am for a feed and then back to sleep until between 7-8am. She has gone through 7-7 twice without a feed at all so we’re making progress!

We’ve just hit the dreaded 4 month sleep regression, she’s stirring a lot during the night and after her 5am bottle is deciding it’s time to get up! I pop her back in her cot and eventually she does nod off.

Naps are a bit all over the place at the moment. We’re out and about alot so she tends to grab naps in the car or pram. If we’re home I make a little bed up for on the sofa and she naps there but not for much longer than 20 mins at a time.

Rosie’s 8 week update

Feeding
At 7 weeks old, Rosie was finally diagnosed with milk protein allergy. She is having Nutramigen formula. She feeds every 3-4 hours and has 4oz. She weighs 11lbs! 

Sleeping

Rosie has become a lot more alert during the day. If we’re out and about she will usually nod off in the car seat or pram. She finds it more difficult to nap at home. She likes her bouncy chair when we’re at home. 

During the nightime, Rosie still sleeps in her Moses basket next to me. She has a bath at 8.30 then bottle and put down at 9pm. Her sleep is a bit hit and miss. Sometimes she only has 1 feed, other times it’s 2 feeds. The best she has slept is 9pm-3am then 3.30am-7am. 

Likes

Rosie like walks in the pram, being in her car seat, bath time, watching her big sister. 

Dislikes

Being held too much and blankets!

Even now moving onto Nutramigen, Rosie seems unsettled. We have to give the milk two weeks and if no improvement then we’ll be off to the Drs again.
