So I'm slowly introducing solids to my 7 mo twins. They eat avocados, bananas, and rice cereal.
I introduced yams, just a little bit. I thought maybe they weren't sleeping as well, but they weren't getting yams everyday, and I wasn't sure if there was a pattern. So then I introduced pears. They were then consistently getting yams AND pears every day, and started sleeping just horrible. I decided it was gas, because my girl had a couple instances were she would fall asleep nursing, then when I tried to put her down she screamed, arched, then farted and relaxed a little. Then repeated that sequence a couple times. The boy was also screaming and arching, but I didn't notice the farting (but he still might have, I don't know.)
I wanted to sleep, not play games, so I cut both at once, and they're now sleeping better. (Not well, mind you - each still wakes up 2-4 times nightly, but better, and no screaming/arching/farting business.)
So, I should reintroduce them one at a time and figure out for sure what's going on, right? But I'm scared. I get so little sleep already.
I wanted the pears to help keep them regular, and the yams for all the good nutrients.
So which do you think is the culprit? Maybe I'll just try the less likely to be gas-inducing for now....
