This photo shows David as he is right at this moment, sleeping for the FIRST TIME in his cot. (He was still in the bassinet until today.)
And here he is this morning EATING SOLIDS! He had his first Farex last week. Here you can see he's now good at opening his mouth wide. Most of it comes straight out again but Mum just shovels it right back in!
You can also see that David's having a quick look at the IKEA catalogue. We're planning a trip there tomorrow with Grandma to buy the IKEA highchair. (And a few other things too...)
These milestones are late (cot) and early (solids) because of his acid reflux. Sleep has become such a difficult issue that Mum has kept putting off the change in case it causes even more disruption.
And Mum is starting solids early (by current Australian recommendations anyway) because some paediatricians advise that solids reduce acid reflux. Hopefully they are right.

well done David! Has he slept in your bed until now or just his bassinet? he looks so cute in that big cot.

Zach started solids quite early too (by current recommendations) but i think all of us probably did too, back in the day!

he looks quite pleased with that food.

No, David's just been in the bassinet, near our bed. I don't think I'd sleep with him in our bed. But I like him close.

He does like his food. Though today he got sick of it very quickly. (not quite sure what was wrong.) It's quite fun starting on food!

i do hope the solids help reduce the reflux for dear David, and increase the sleep for all 3 of you!!!

Eowyn and Coco started solids at 4 months, and both had AVOCADO as their first ever food!
