cereal please...

So many people told us how super blessed we were that Hadlea starting sleeping through the night when she was close to a month old. We were actually waking her up to eat every 3 hours, per our pediatrician, until we gave up and started letting her tell us when she was hungry, which was normally around 7am. Well...recently we learned how spoiled we really were! :) She has started waking up between 3 and 5am...STARVING! We can hardly get up, fix a bottle, change her and get the bottle in her mouth before she completely loses it! Our pediatrician told us at our last appointment to continue to feed her formula until we come back for her 4 month appointment, but I just cannot wait another 2 weeks if she is starving! We decided to try some cereal and see how it went....let's just say we had ALOT of laughs!I mixed up less than a Tablespoon and hand-fed her a couple of bites...her faces were hilarious! I then put the rest in her bottle. I checked on her a million times after she went to bed make sure she wasn't having an allergic reaction! :) What can I say...it's the first time momma in me! Ha!
Here is the sweet girl in all of her talking glory! She is becoming such a ham! I sure love this sweet baby girl!

We add 2 tablesppons of rice (not oatmel) to Parkers night time bottle and he sleeps all through the night and he loves it! Check with your peditrician but ours said some babies get more hungry before that 4 month mark.

I think she is going to be quite the ham, just like her daddy.
