Our first time giving Lilibean some food. She is almost six months old and we figured from all the different advice, it was time. I wanted to be one of those epic moms who solely breastfed for as long as possible but this little girl has the metabolism of a beast. She is so thin but eats SOOO much.
It was fine breastfeeding her during the day every hour or so but when it came to the night time, she recently started screaming in the night and waking up much more often than usual. Trying to not just pin it on her being a fuss bucket we sat down and made a plan to try some things.
First, I started sleeping with her and it helped a little but I think it was mostly because I could pop out the bunny as soon as I felt her stirring. Also, as much as I love cuddling with her, I’d much rather sleep by myself or snuggle with my hubby so naturally we tried something else. Guys, the difference is absolutely insane from not feeding her to feeding her.
When we realized it wasn’t enough and she was still screaming in the night, we blended some organic brown rice. We took 1 TSP of the ground mooshy rice and mixed it with breast milk. The texture was weird for her but it seemed no different than getting some milk. She liked it and it was amazing! That night she only woke up twice, and slept until 9am (the usual being 4:30-5am). Praise the Lord for some sleep!
