H-Bear Updates, Indy

Indy // Four months

It’s been another cracker of a month!4 months

This month Indy has learnt how to grab, and now successfully grasps the desired object 8 out of 10 times! His favourite things seem to be Paddington Bear, jingly owl and my yellow teething necklace. He also has a bit of a thing for sparkly objects… my ring finger seems to be a big hit!

He’s getting very close to sitting up unsupported and has times where he sits, only holding my fingers for support. I can’t wait until he is sitting by himself; I remember things got easier when Busby could do this… well, until she began to move!

We’ve had at least one night where he’s slept straight through and (on the whole) we’re only having one wake-up a night now, which is certainly doable from a ‘coping with life and a very active toddler’ point of view!slept through

Indy has settled down a lot this month – from sorting out his sleep, to finally getting some answers with silent reflux – I can feel the hazy veil beginning to lift, and we might be starting to enter the land of the living again.

We saw the Osteopath last week; Indy is a very tense baby and may be suffering from headaches, which is why he likes to squish his head up against his cot and the sling. The Osteopath also thinks that Indy may have a lactose sugar/cow’s milk protein intolerance and/or silent reflux (apparently the latter is a symptom of intolerance)… We had a very frustrating and upsetting appointment with a doctor who did not listen to us when we reeled off a list of Indy’s symptoms, so we’ll have to keep battling this month…

I’m still breastfeeding a few times a day (alternating with bottle), which makes me very happy and proud to have made it this far. I’m enjoying our night feed snuggle so much more now that he’s not feeding on me all day as well!snoozle

This month Indy has enjoyed Nick singing The Grand Old Duke of York, and me singing most things to him (our house is like a musical). His favourite toy is (Busby’s) Paddington Bear… so we bought him his own as Busby, although happy to share, probably doesn’t want to share if it results in a very soggy, slightly crusty Paddington at the end of it…

Indy has been teething like a fiend, and our fingers are suffering from being nibbled by bumpy gums… I’d forgotten how horrific teething is. Better start ordering copious amounts of bibs before he starts going through a t-shirt per hour…

    I love his hat! Not to mention that cracking smile. I remember things starting to get easier at about month four, perhaps you just get used to the new state of tired at that point lol. I’m sorry the doctor didn’t listen to you. They really should stop being like that, if my doctor had listened to me Ethan’s journey would have been very different.

    Thanks for linking up with Small Steps Amazing Achievements :0)
