Eating: Judah is now in his first full month of eating and in short he has been fantastic. I wrote in his six month update how we have chosen to baby led wean and Judah has absolutely loved exploring food! We pretty much have him on an early lunch and then dinner routine at the moment.
Judah has tried so many different foods already – broccoli, carrot, parsnip, cauliflower, potato, courgette, peppers, red onion, swede, apple, pear, cucumber, crumpets, homemade bread, savoury homemade muffins, Weetabix, porridge, pasta with homemade tomato sauce. The list goes on and on! Judah has been brilliant at getting to grips with biting (especially with no teeth) chewing and although there has been the odd large gulp or two he is great at getting rid of whatever he doesn’t want to eat.
We have also introduced him to a cup and I have to say I am in love with the Nuby Flip n Flow, I found Nathanael was great with a straw rather than a sippy cup and it seems to be the same for Judah as well.
Still breastfeeding as and when he wants to, which was pretty much the same as last month I think it was only when Nate had more protein in his diet that he dropped feeds.
Sleeping: Yeah to full nights sleeps all around!! Judah sleeps pretty much from 7.30pm to 7am as standard and Mummy is loving this muchly!
Nappies: Size 3 Pampers.
Clothes: 6-9 months.
Things Judah likes to do: Judah has been so busy this month especially with weaning I am trying to make sure I focus on all the other wonderful things he has been learning this month too! To start with he has made great strides in sitting up and I would say he can hold himself up independently for about 30 seconds or so before he keels over.
We have officially graduated to his big boy pram and with the appearance of some nice spring days Judah has loved to explore more of the world around him. On a Saturday morning Nathanael has football so Judah and I usually take a walk in the village which has been really nice.
Judah’s love for bath time continues, as he splashes and kicks around, now he is a little older it has been great to introduce him to some proper bath toys.
We have now graduated from simply being able to lay Judah down on his play mat and him being ok with that, to laying down will not do – he has to pretty much be upright at all times so he can observe what everyone else is doing – I can’t blame him I would want to do the same!
Recently we have seen the start of Judah trying to shuffle forward, he has been spinning himself around in circles for weeks but recently we have seen the attempts to move forward in a straight-ish line, and I am sure he will be off soon!
Judah and Nathanael’s love for each other just grows with Nathanael always wanting to know where Judah is, and Judah is exactly the same too!
I am loving this age as equally as much as I am missing him being that newborn, time is flying with both my boys!
