I can't believe my little Lexi is nearly 7 months old! With that you would think that she is sleeping through the night, rolling all over the floor, and well onto solid foods by now. If you think "sleeping through the night means 8pm to 8am.....she isn't doing that. However, she will go 8 hours and then she is ready for a bottle. She is not rolling all over the place but can roll from her tummy to her back on accident. Solids? I have to admit, it has been a VERY hard step for me to take. At four months she was absolutely Not ready. At 6 months she still wasn't very interested. Now she is almost 7 months and I am trying my hardest to teach her how to eat, but it takes FOREVER! It is a HUGE mess! She doesn't quite hold her head up very straight, so I find myself pushing up on her head to shove a spoonful of slop into almost pinched lips. So frustrating. I am desperate for her to go longer hours between feedings, but I'm pretty sure it won't happen until she is getting more solids. Anyway, you would think because she is my fourth kid, I would have this DOWN. I'm afraid I just don't know what to do other than keep trying and not to worry too much about amounts. So for now, I guess I will just keep practicing when I can, and hope she will get it soon so that I can get longer sleep at night. If anyone has advice I'm all ears. Maybe I should just skip the purees all together and see if she likes little pieces of bread or tiny chunks of veggies. Is she too young for that??
