The doctor also feels it's important to go ahead and start Cole on food. She suggested starting with barley cereal instead of rice cereal since he has shown allergies already. I can also use Beechnut brand rice cereal but not Gerber as it has milk proteins in it. If he has a reaction to the cereal I should hold off but give him vegetables as almost no one is allergic to vegetables. He hasn't shown any hunger or calorie need for solids - he's even down to one feeding in the middle of the night. Well, actually it's more like early morning as it's most often at 4:00am. I love the longer period of sleep but after getting so much I have a hard time going back to sleep. I usually don't fall back to sleep until 5:00 or 5:30am now which doesn't leave me feeling all that rested.
In other exciting news, Cole will have a little cousin by the end of today! Jefra's water broke last night and she's already on pitosin to speed up the delivery. Here comes little Cannon - he'll be 2 1/2 weeks early just like Cole was!
Oh, and here's video of Cole rolling over!
