Seven Months Old Alayo

Height/Weight: About 19 lbs and 28 inches.

Routine: His routine has remained the same over the last month. He wakes up for the day around 9am, eats and plays for about two hours before taking his first nap. His bedtime is around 8:030pm (give or take an hour lol depends on what we are doing that evening). He is able to self-soothe and put himself to sleep.His nighttime routine consists of: bath, massage, feed, story time, prayer in his crib, lights turned down, at which point he puts himself to sleep.

Sleeping: He still sleeps through the night for an average of 12 -13 hours and usually takes one “good” (>1hr) nap a day a few 10-15 min naps here and there.

Eating/Feeding: He is formula-fed and has about 4-7oz every 2 hours with the exception of nighttime where he eats about 6-8oz and sleeps through the night. He has started solids with one “meal” a day at dinner with us and baby cookies once during the day. He has tried chicken, zucchini, potatoes, sweet potatoes, edamame and green beans.

Sizes: Alayo is wearing 6-9 months clothing both in pants, tops/onesies and sleepers. He’s up to size 3 in diapers.

Milestones: Alayo has started standing with support for long periods of time. His biggest milestone this month is that he is able to sit by himself for brief periods of time. He can reach out to grab the bottle to his mouth, hold it and keep it there. He is able to pull other people’s hands into his mouth and pull anything within reach, I assume this helps him with teething. He talks a lot now and has truly discovered his baby voice. He has no teeth yet but I feel two starting to make their way out. He loves holding our hands and playing/exploring with them.
