So Oliver turned 7 months old last week so I thought it was time I did an update on how he is doing.
Oliver is now on 3 meals a day and 4 bottles a day and his usual routine for this is.
6:30am-7:00am He will wake up and have a bowl of baby porridge and a 6oz bottle.
10:30-11:00am He will have a 6oz bottle.
12:00-12:30pm is lunch time and he will have a 7 month jar and a baby fruity pot.
3:00pm ish is usually another 6oz bottle.
5:00-5:30pm tea time. This is the same as lunch a 7 month jar and baby fruity pot all though some nights I will give him what we are having such as spaghetti bolognaise etc.
6:30-7:00pm last bottle of the night another 6oz one.
I will do a more in depth weaning post to let you know what food we are using but it is still pretty similar to when we starting weaning. You can check that post out here.
Oliver is now having 2-3 naps a day, mostly 2. These are usually around 9:30 for 1-2 hours and then in the afternoon about 1:00pm for 1-2 hours as well but this depends on if we are at home as he will not nap for longer than 30 minutes in his pushchair!
As for bedtime and wake up time he tends to go to bed around 6:30-7:00pm after his last bottle and then will usually go all night and wake up at around 6:30 in the morning.
Development wise he is now rolling and it using this as a way to get around, he just rolls over and over until he gets where he wants to be. In the last few days when he is laid on his front he has started to try to lift his knees up into a crawling position. He also likes to stand up now when you hold him up and often gets frustrated with you if you just sit him on your knee when he would rather stand up.
He is also sitting up now and can sit mainly by himself for a good while unless he isn’t concentrating then he will fall.
Oliver loves noisy toys and has a few rattles that he shakes around and bangs on things to make as much noice as possible and he also likes something he can have a good chomp on.
He now has 6 teeth. The 2 at the bottom are totally through and then the 4 at the top started to make their appearance all together about 2 weeks ago so there is no wonder he has enjoyed toys that he can chomp on.
Oliver has now started to babble and is making lots of different sounds but I cannot make out anything that really sounds like his first word yet.
I need to take him to my local children’s centre as I haven’t had him weighted for a good few months so I will update you on his weight next month.
I think I have included everything that has been going on this month with Oliver and I will update you again next month.
Thank you for reading.
