7 Month Baby Update
I cant believe it Emmy is 7 months old. Here’s what’s going on with her this month when it comes to growth, feeding, sleeping, milestones, development and breastfeeding.
She went to the doctor this month for her 6 month check up, she is 19.4 lbs and 27.9 inches long. She is now in the 90 percentile she used to be at 97. She is wearing size 12 month clothes and some 18 months, pants in 18’s are to long but shirts are fine just a little roomy. She is still wearing size 3 diapers. Also had her 6 month immunizations, she got a fever this times and was in an off mood for a week or two. Grumpier than normal, not wanting to eat her solid foods and wanting to be carried everywhere.
She discovered that she can roll around a lot to get to places she wants to go. Emmy sat up by herself this month! She was playing on her tummy, pulled herself up on her hands and knees, and sat down. She is so close to crawling, I bet she will any day now. She will rock and roll on her tummy, scoot around with her hands and feet. In the last few days shes started to get up onto her knees but is unsure how to move them forward.
Breastfeeding is going really well, but if shes distracted she wont suck or she rolls away. She’s tried so many different foods this month.Including: Pumpkin,Strawberries,blueberries, Yogurt, Broccoli, Spinach,Prunes,Mango and Turkey. She is more efficient though it doesn’t take nearly as long as it used to take her to nurse. In August I’m going to start pumping in the morning to build up a freezer stash for when I return to work in November.
She loves to grab faces, especially noses and mouths. Shes not gentle so it can hurt,but she’s so happy doing it. She is getting so good at putting her soother back into her mouth.She loves bath time ,going for walks, drives in the car and rolling/crawling around on the floor. Some of her favorite toys are a little puppy that jingles, and some teethers. She is so funny she will put a toy in her mouth then push up on her hands and knees.
She dislikes putting on a shirt, when we get her dressed and pull the shirt over her head she gets so mad. She hates her crib, we tried sleep training at the beginning of July but it wasn’t the right time. It was just after her immunizations and getting the fever. It breaks my heart to hear her cry and see her little face get so red. We will try again in a few weeks.
That’s all for this months update!
