    Question Baby/Toddler Development

    This may seem like a strange question but I was wondering how parents' felt about their baby's developments in things like bfeeding, solids, milestones etc. See while I found bfeeding very easy I have found other things like solids and sleep a bit harder. Do people find that everything is easy, hard or a mixture of both? I know all baby's are diff and we perceive things diff but I thought it would be good to answer a few quick questions and see what the results are.

    1 = easy, happy with progress
    2 = medium, things going okay
    3 = hard, didn't go well


    BREASTFEEDING: 1 this was easy for me with only a few nipple issues at start
    BOTTLEFEEDING: 3 DD drinks from bottle occasionally but it's a battle and I've wasted heaps of milk!
    SLEEPING: 2 champion sleeper now but took 7 months to get there - day and night both good
    SOLIDS: 3 at the moment!! no interest though I'm not too worried
    MILESTONES: 1/2 seems to reach all milestones within "suggested" age but maybe a bit later than some babies own age.

    Of course you can add other categories and this scoring is a very loose, simple way to get an idea!! I also realise that it can be different for siblings.

    Home, where else??


    BREASTFEEDING: 3. Cooper was just such a big baby when born and I was not producing enough milk to satisfy in the first few weeks. I couldn't handle him crying in hunger and he was trying to feed every 30 minutes. I was too exhausted and couldn't cope.
    BOTTLEFEEDING: 1. Cooper latched on really easily. Was drinking between 60mls and 120 mls every feed within days. Sometimes he would have up to 200mls if he was really hungry
    SLEEPING: 1. He is usually a good sleeper though we are looking at moving him into his own room before the new baby arrives.
    SOLIDS: 1. Cooper eats everything with gusto. Has only ever refused mint, banana that has not been mashed (he doesn't like the texture) and pineapple (too sour). Favourite food is broccoli and potato.
    MILESTONES: 2. Is meeting his milestones generally though some later than others. Is a normal happy toddler.
    TOILET TRAINING: Haven't started yet.

    BREASTFEEDING: 3 = terrible! gave it a good go but in the end, gave up and didn't look back or feel bad for not being able to do it.

    BOTTLEFEEDING: 1 = she took to the bottle straight away and has always been fine on it.

    SLEEPING: 1 = slept through from 8 weeks old. Is not a good sleeper through the day as she catnaps but she sleeps from 9pm - 6am which is good. Doesn't take long for her to fall asleep either.

    SOLIDS: N/A yet, not long to go though!

    MILESTONES: she is going fine with everything and on Anzac Day, her bottom teeth made an appearance!
