Our visit to the doctor was very interesting. We were able to ask the silly parent questions like 'when can we start using lotion?' We were given a handout that was only 4 pages however held a ton of information about what Nolan should be doing about now. I know it's just a guide and not something to set goals to but it's exciting.
One of the items on the list is that he should be sleeping longer and at 3 months start skipping the 2 am feeding. WELL, I must say that sounds like a lovely idea. I'm not sure if I am supposed to DO anything to make that happen, but if it does happen, that would be very fun.
Another is the introduction to solid food beginning around 4 months. I have to admit, this is very exciting to me. And I have absolutely no idea why. I don't mind nursing. Nolan is thriving, it's exhausting but a very special time for us. But feeding him food somehow makes him more of a little person. I look at the 'with food' schedule outlined on this paper and it is really thrilling. It is suggested that he will someday eat 4 times a day. Isn't that exciting. (he eats about 6 times a day now) and when he is eating those 4 times a day he will also be sleeping through the night. Such exciting times ahead.
oh, and PS, we could have been using lotion this whole time...
