River will be 10months old July 1st. I have been giving her 1 bottle of formula a day for about 3 weeks now. I decided to wean when my fieonce told me that "I don't have you, River has you". It makes me sad but he's right. River follows me around but will walk right past him. I go to bed nursing her leaving not time for romance.
I was leaning towards weaning on my own opinion (before he told me that) for convience. She wouldn't take a bottle from me before and I don't nurse it public so it was hard to go places especially since she still nurses every 2 1/2 hrs.
She knows where food comes from and will try to lift up my shirt which could lead to embarrasment especially at the river.
She's very distractable. She will eat sitting up and looking around which is very weird to me and to my fieonce.
All in all I guess time just came which definatly makes me sad but I am also ready.View Thread
So you just stopped cold turkey? Doesn't it hurt? I did one bottle a day for several weeks and Monday I started doing 2 bottles a day. I don't think I will stick to my original plan. I may do a month longer.View Thread
Wow, thanks ladies. I hadn't even heard about extending the time in a rear facing seat. I know my son is 7 and still in a booster seat. The law used to be 5 yrs or 50lbs, but I called the dmv when he turned 5 and they told me it was 80lbs! He'll be huge!
So I don't have an issue w extending my 9month old's stay in a rear facing seat.View Thread
River will be 9 months tomorrow and she had all 4 top teeth come in within 2weeks of one another (2 at a time) and trust me, YOU DO NOT WANT THAT! It was soooo hard. This happened last week and the week before and she still isn't back to sleeping through the night yet.View Thread
Hi everyone! My name is Tiffany, I am 25yrs old. I live w my fieonce, my 7yr old son Tyler, and my daughter River who will be 9 months tomorrow. River is crawling, pulling up, cruising the furiture and letting go of couches while standing for a few seconds. She regularly says mama, dada and nana. She says other things like Ty Ty and bye bye sometimes.
She is EBF altough w summer approaching I have thought about weaning her and changed my mind about a hundred times lol.
I want to know what your 9 month old eats. River's normal schedule is 2tbs baby cereal w half a container of fruit for breakfast, half a container of fruit and half a container of veggie for lunch and half a container of veggie and 2 1/2oz of meat for supper. She also nurses on demand about every 2 1/2-3hrs. I give her cut up cheese, gerber puffs, gerber crunchies, yogurt melts, grahm crackers, and other soft foods as snacks during the day. I am not too good about giving her a sippy cup as I should be. My son had issues with cavities as a small child and the dentist told me it was from the juice.
River wont usually eat more of the baby food at a time but will eat more of the things she can pick up with her hands, and wants ANYTHING we are eating wether she can have it or not. She seems like such a piggy. I don't want to over feed her with all the extras but I don't want to under feed her either. (6months she was 26 1/2inches, 18lbs. She weighs probably 20lbs now, she is bigger than her 1yr old cousin).View Thread
