A) It was time for us to trash the pacifiers. I know she's only 7.5 weeks old, but when she started crying everytime it fell out of her mouth, I knew it was time. Yesterday was our first full day without it. It was . . . rough. The poor dear just kept vigorously sucking the air and flailing her tongue about and fussing. I manipulated her in to sleeping 1.5 hours twice in the morning, and she pretty much didn't sleep after that until about 10pm. She wasn't really that fussy though for not sleeping.
B) We also upgraded her bottle nipple. I bought a few different kinds that were for 3 months and up. I cannot believe the difference it made for her. It used to take her 45-60 minutes to eat 2.5 - 3 ounces. And she rarely ever ate more than 3 ounces. She'd get tired of working so hard and quit, and then be hungry an hour later. Since I switched yesterday evening, she's been eating 4 ounces in 20 minutes! Hallelu!
C) Today I am not thinking about what "the books" say. I'm going to watch Davie for cues, and go from there. I'm writing EVERYTHING down, so I can compare her routine day to day and not just make her do what I think she should do.
Gotta go, she's waking up from her nap!!!
