Scholastica is four months today! Can you believe it? I sure can’t! And last night, this little one slept from 9pm to 6 am, I was surprised and happy. We put her in the pack and play that is set up on the main floor, so we could get some chores done. She fell asleep in there, so she stayed there while we watched a show. I fell asleep on the couch and woke up at 330 and started to head upstairs when I realized that Joshua had left her in the pack and play. Since she was still sleeping, I laid back down on the couch and went back to sleep, only waking up when the chicken alarm went off! It was wonderful.
She’s on the move, or trying to be, she rolls from front to back and back to front and yesterday was up on her elbows and knees. She manages to get around the floor to play with toys as well.
She is still nursing, with the help of the Lact-Aid, no bottles yet either. She has gone the longest without a bottle and I think she’s closing in on the longest breastfed as well, but I’m not exactly sure when I quit nursing the other babies. I credit the nursing success with using the Lact-Aid for supplementing instead of the SNS I used previously. I still have milk too, and I know I’ve been all but dry by this point with the others. I have also become a lot more comfortable nursing in public with the Lact-Aid, so I think that helps to keep me going. That and she loves to nurse. She gives me a look and turns her whole body to try to get in to position when she wants to nurse. Sometimes she will just latch on for a minute or two then be done then want to talk or play.
