My youngest is a little bruiser lately, he's come far from his days as a scrawny little newborn and seems to think hes ready to take on the world!
His eyes are constantly following my girls around the room, and where they are, he wants to be. This has its advantages, in that I can leave my big girls to entertain the baby while I clean up or make dinner, but it also has some downfalls, the biggest of which is a baby that cant wait to grow up.
He will not stay still! He has been army crawling for a few weeks now, and I don't think real crawling is far behind. Hes even begun pulling himself up on things. Hes not even seven months old yet!
This constant activity makes it hard when I need him to sit still, bedtime is a gong show, its like he doesn't know how to be still and calm, and don't even get me started on diaper changes. When my eldest was going through this stage, I learned a trick to changing diapers that i still use this day.
How to change a squirmy baby in 5 easy steps
Tackle babygently lay baby down
- Roll baby onto his/her back
- place your feet gently on his shoulders
- Attempt to change baby as he fights you like a rabid octupus
- Don't laugh at the ridiculousness of what you're doing or the baby will want to play even more
I was a little concerned with fit, I have two very different shaped kids still in diapers, but I shouldn't have been, they fit my super skinny 2 year old and my chunktastic 7 month old equally well. The stretch in them make them a great #FirstFit.
