Time flies, I can’t believe Kam is 4 months old already! We just had his check-up this week and everything’s going well with him. The doctor always asks us if we’re doing “tummy-time”, and we try, we really really do, but Kam isn’t a big fan. He’ll only last a few minutes, then he gets frustrated and starts crying.
The doctor told us to keep working on it with him, because eventually he’ll get mad enough to roll over. Should I be worried that he hasn’t done that yet? I’m starting to become obsessive about it. He makes no effort to roll from his back to his stomach. In fact, he LOVES being on his back and is usually a super happy baby when he’s laying down. When we put him on his stomach, he moves around a lot, but doesn’t push with his arms to try to roll. Any tips to make this happen?
The doctor also told us we could start feeding Kam rice cereal a couple of times a day if we want to. I was pretty surprised, becasue most of what I’ve read says babies under 6 months shouldn’t be given anything but breastmilk or formula. So I guess I could use some advice with this one too. How do we go about doing that? And how much? Is the purpose to teach him how to swallow and eat from a spoon now, so he’ll be ready when he turns 6 months? Other than that, he’s in the 50th percentile for height and 75th for weight(chunker:)!
The doctor says he’ll likely level off on weight now, becuase he’ll be getting more active. But check out those cheeks!! I can’t stop kissing them! I love hearing him try to talk and laugh! He’s really getting a personality now.
