Nancy - Our little guy is cruising as well around the coffee table and along the couch. He doesn't seem interested yet in trying to take steps without holding on. He only has 4 teeth so far but is definitely working on more. As for sleep, he's not been sleeping well for a couple of months. Just all of a sudden he stopped sleeping through the night. Sometimes he wakes up once, sometimes three times. We keep wondering if he'll ever get back to sleeping through! We are celebrating his 1st birthday this weekend with a party. Can't believe he's almost a year already!!

Hi Charr,

congrats on his 1st B-day. Wer are celebrating ours in 2 weeks!
Sleep: same thing; some days 8-9 hours, other he wakes up 1 or 2 times. Can never tell so we've learned to just live with it! :-)

Food: he is still eating just pureed food and will not put anything that's even remotely chunky or solid. He will take it out with his finger and make it look like he is almost chokink. Is your's nibbling thingson his own yet or is he on pureed food too?

Your hemlet treatment should be done by now. Are you happy with the results? How about PT? Is is over yet?

Walking: cruising better and betterbut I think it will be a good 4-6 weeks before he takes his first steps. No rush though. We still have to get prepared for that! :-)

Hope all is well otherwise and look forward to hearing from you.

WONDERCAT: Haven't heard from you in a while. Hope all is well with you and Sean!

Nancy - Our son had some gagging reflex as well with anything lumpy like carrot bits or pasta in his baby food and still does at times. I think it's because he's used to baby food normally just being smooth and then if there are bits of food in it, it surprises him. But he has no problem at all with finger foods like bits of toast, muffin, baby goldfish crackers, diced pears. Basically anything he can gum he's fine with. He really is wanting to feed himself more and more and gets mad if he doesn't have a spoon to try to do it himself. Helmet treatment is done and we're so happy we did it. He got down to 2mm of assymetry. PT we're still doing once a month. He still has about a 5 degree tilt that we can't seem to get rid of. The therapist is thinking we maybe should try a tot collar for a while. Happy Birthday to your son!!

Hi ladies,

CHARR: I actuallu started a message a couple of times but had to cancel as my baby woke up crying from his nap.

We celebrated his first B-day a couple of weeks ago. It was fun, for us at least.... :-)
I can't believe he's 2.
Eating is sitll a challenge. He will only eat pureed stuff. Nothing chunky. The ped said this is quite common.
I am giving him toddler formula but will start to transition him to milk slowly.
He's 88 percentile in height but only 45 in weight.
He is still cruising. No independent walking yet.
It is becoming so hard to change his diapers these days! I have to literally wrestle with him.
He also is biting us. I am being firm with him to stop the habit, and so is my DH but he still does it. Are yours doing this too?
I had a very irregular period last month. My OB even did a pregnancy test to make sure I wasn't pregnant or had ectopic pregnancy since I was 5 days late. But then things resumed normally. He attributed it to stress.
We decided to postpone our last frozen cycle till after the New Year.

Hope you are both doing well. And Happy Thanksgiving to you both.

WONDERCAT: as CHarr said, you haven't posted in long time. Hope you, Sean and DH are doing well.

Take care,
Nancy

Hi ladies,

hope you're both doing well. HAven't heard from you in a while.
Hope you both had a great Thanksgiving!
Baby's doing well. No independent walking yet, just cruising along.
I tried to start him on whole milk, but he hated it! Doesn't he understand formula is expensive???!!! :-)
Aside from that, growing like a weed every day. Still only taking in pureed food and taking out anything that's chunky from his mouth.
Hope to hear from you guys soon.
Have a great week.
Nancy

Hi, Nancy. Things are good with our little guy as well. He's saying a couple of words now. "Daddy" he's been saying for some time and now he says "meme" for mommy. He also says "baby" and "bye-bye" and "uh-oh." He's getting more teeth finally. His two front teeth have broken through. Eating is a bit of a challenge lately as he wants to feed himself mostly and prefers finger foods. He has tried using a spoon but that still needs work. :-) We have started him on whole milk and he likes it. We're also giving him the toddler formula for added nutrition. How is the biting? Our son has done that at times but it seems to be a teething thing for him as he doesn't do it that often. Is your son using a sippy cup? Ours just doesn't care for it much yet. He still prefers his bottle.

Take care and Happy Holidays!

Hi ladies,

WONDERCAT: hope all is well with you. Haven't heard from you in a long while. Let us know how you're doing.

CHARR: my son doesn't like the sippy cup either but I keep on trying. He is still cruising but not walking yet.

I will write more later. Just wanted to wish you both a GREAT New year!

Hi,

CHARR: it seems like it's just you and me now on this board! :-)
How's your baby doing? Are you sitll continuing with the physical therapy, and if so, is your baby letting you do any stretches at home?
How is he doing now with the sippy cup? Mine is still not taking it.
Milk: I am mixing formula and whole milk to slowly get him to like the whole milk. It's still a challenge. How many ounces does he take in daily?
Solid foods: he refuses still anything lumpy and just wants pureed stuff.
Walking: just cruising still... we waiting for the big day! :-)
Sleep: we have sort of "FERBERIZED". I wish we had done this a lot sooner. But he is sleeping 7-9 hours some days. Other days he'll wake up at 2 but then fall back asleep fast. How is your son's sleep?
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
I can't believe we have beem moms for over a year now!
I will probably try one last cycle next month and that will probably be the end of our IVF journey.
Take care.
Nancy

Hi, Nancy! I was happy to read your post. Our son is doing really well. He still has like a 5-degree tilt that most times you don't notice when he's active but if he's tired, he tends to revert back to tilting his head. He was fitted for a tot collar recently so we'll see if that helps at all. Doing exercises is difficult to do at this age for sure. He has started walking on his own now. Just last night he figured out how to push himself back up to a stand without hanging on to anything. He still crawls as well but we're thinking it won't be long before he's only walking. He does take a sippy cup now but not exclusively. He still wants a bottle at naptime and before bed. I'd say he takes about 15-20 ounces of whole milk a day. As for sleeping, he's off and on between sleeping well and not. He had gotten really bad for a while where he was waking up 2-3 times a night and was not napping well either. It got to where he was looking so tired and becoming sleep deprived. His pediatrician said we have to let him cry some so he would learn to go back to sleep on his own. It wasn't something I wanted to do and was difficult but within a couple of nights, he was sleeping better so it was the best thing for him. He gets thrown off easily though and still goes through periods of not sleeping well.

Good luck with your IVF attempt! Please stay in touch and keep me updated on your little guy and I'll do the same.
