Well after 3 course of antibiotics he seems to be settling in and hopefully the infection is now gone gone.
Of course teething is still here - although there are no teeth to tell you of - and that means sleepless nights and fractious days. I really cannot wait for those little chompers to cut through and hopefully bring him some relief.
On the feeding front we are still going with breast. Little monkey won't take a bottle. I've been trying all tricks i read about on the web but no results. My next step? I'm planning on leaving him with a childminder for a couple of hours - I have a good recommendation for a local one - to see if not only he starts getting used to other people but also if she can get him to take a bottle. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to wean him off the breast just yet but with him feeding every 3 hours 24/7 for most of the past few weeks, i could do with a break every now and then.
All the infections and antibiotics and side effects means there hasn't been that much activity on the solids front. Partially because he doesn't seem very interested and partially because up to here it just felt like I had too much in my hand to also have to persuade little guy into experimenting with new things. On the past few days I felt he seemed a bit more interested on what I eat so I'm hoping to start the while solids story a bit more seriously this week. Of course I need a certain amount of planing and organisation to get anywhere but there is still hope.
Despite all the challenges of the past 2 months lill guy managed some to learn some new skills and whenever he is calm enough you can see his lovely character coming through. So our smiley little boy is now 17lb5oz - 7.850kg and about 28 inches, that around 72cm. Wants to sit up all the time and only recently started to do this fake cough whenever he wants some attention, cheeky!
