Re: need some advice - changes on behavi
1. It's a crapshoot. Some days your baby will still need that morning nap, and some days she won't. Some days you'll get it right and give her what she needs, some days you'll miss and wind up with a tired, cranky baby. Just do your best to read your baby's cues, confusing though they are, and be flexible and patient.
2. As long as she is pooping several times a day, the problem probably isn't constipation. However, you might want to increase her consumption of whole grains, fruits and veggies, and decrease her intake of foods like cheese, white bread, white rice, apples, and bananas, which can stop a baby up.
3. Normal. She is exercising her developing mind and ability to communicate, and that can mean an increase in crying as the baby uses cries to communicate her needs and frustrations. It's not necessarily sad crying.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
