10 Month Postpartum / Baby Update!


The weight seems to be coming off now that I've stopped breastfeeding (crazy as I used to think breastfeeding would help me lose weight!). I'm down 0.8kgs (1.7lbs) since last month, so only 1kg (2.2lbs) to go until I'm back at my pre-pregnancy weight. Although I'm aiming to lose more like 6kgs (13.2lbs), hopefully it just keeps coming off slowly.

My 10 month old baby boy is now 10.3kg (22.7lbs) and his height is 77cms. 

We have finally dropped the dreamfeed (hallelujah!) and James is sleeping from 7am until 7pm. The next big challenge will be weaning him off the dummy! Apparently they start to depend on it more in the second year, so I really want it gone before he's one (which isn't far away! Eeep).

His night sleep has been great! although he wakes up a few times and yells out (almost like he's had a bad dream) but soon self-settles. He's also down to 2 naps a day instead of 3 (he self weaned off his afternoon nap). Not sure if this is a good thing or bad thing!

We found out the little man is allergic (or at least has a food intolerance) to tomatoes. He gets a bad rash around his mouth and behind his ears :( hopefully this is something he'll grow out of. 


No change here. He's still in size 1.
He's started to crawl on all fours (yaaay!). I think he still prefers commando style though as he gets there a little faster. He is so good at standing now and vary rarely falls if he's holding onto something. He's started cruising too. He loves cruising along the couch and tries his hardest to climb up it! His new obsession is eyelashes.. he loves playing with mine, rob's and his own - he's fascinated by them. The mini-tantrums have started this month too, crying whenever he doesn't get his way (his fake cry) - I'm finding it hard not to give into him. His two top front teeth have popped through and the ones next to them are starting to show as well. I seriously can't believe he'll be one in less than 2 months! So crazy that he'll be a toddler soon!


PS. Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I've been busy getting our house ready to sell! Hopefully I'll find some time to post about that soon :)
