Took Arielle to the doc yesterday to make sure she isn't getting an ear infection. Turns out, it's just teething! And she weighed 15lbs 0.5oz!!! Doc also said I can start adding a little cereal to her formula, but I'm having a hard time with the stage 1 nipples, so I'm hoping moving up to a stage 2 nipple will help.

Alesia has been on a stage 2 nipple for a few weeks now. She does great with it. Why does the doc want th cereal In the bottle and not spoon fed? As soo as Alessia is 4 months I'm going to spoon feed her food.

Caelyn ate cereal for the first time tonight :) she did great and loved it. She acted like she has always eaten with a spoon. I was going to wait until her 4 month check up but she had been nursing almost non stop today so we thought we would try.

I told the doc she was spitting up a little, so maybe that's why. I was able to find some y cut nipples and they've been working awesomely! She seems to love the formula/cereal mix. She's eating 3-4 every 3hrs and she's sleeping better at night! Overall, she seems happier.

Arielle will be 4mos old next weekend!!! I can't believe how fast time is flying by! I've already stocked up on some baby food. BRU had a great sell last week, I just couldn't pass it up! I was able to get 24 jars of the Earth's Best Organic baby food for $15!

It only seems like she's behind b/c most of the October baby's couldn't wait to be born! Arielle was already gonna be a week early b/c of the sched c-section, and she still came another week earlier! I'm not complaining though, I'm just glad she made it to October!

We've tried to put a little cereal in AJ's bottles twice now and it doesn't seem to settle well with him :( He spits up more and is more fussy. Too bad, because he sometimes only goes 2 hours before fussing for a bottle. He's also been super stuffy at night when he wakes up, so I think we need to pick up a humidifier. Has anyone else noticed their babies acting stuffy at night?

Alessia will be 4 months this weekend so I am starting her on some cereal today. She shows so much interest in eating I want to try some with her for dinner today. I can't wait to be able to start making her homemade baby foods and all the cool varieties I can make.
