Solids

We decided to give solids a try this evening for Madeleine. She was sleeping beautifully and has even slept 8:30 p.m. to 8:30 a.m. However, we think she has started teething as she now wakes during the night. Not sure what is causing her to wake up. Not enough calories or teething or something else. Since Jon is in Barcelona this week, this mom is in need of some zzz's. So, we tried a few new things and did a few things differently this evening. Madeleine was sleeping in our room at night and we thought we would transition her to sleep in her crib at night when the night wakenings stopped. Part of me thinks that perhaps she has outgrown her Boppy chair. She sleeps great in her crib for her naps. The teething bit is new to us because when Annabelle was teething you would have never have known. We were very lucky.

My mom and I fed her some rice cereal this evening. She surprised us and took to it quite well. Since we think Madeleine is teething (very drooly and can't keept her hands out of her mouth), she received her first dose of Tylenol and Orajel before I put her to bed. And she is sleeping in her crib this evening for her first night. Hopefully I will have good news to report in the morning.
