I had the best day EVER with Aviana! I was nervous because Chris went back to work and I wondered if she would miss the bottle and how she would be at nursing. But I had nothing to worry about. She nursed beautifully. We kept to the rough schedule of feeding every 3 hours.
Oh I forgot the most important thing! She slept all the way through to 5.30 AM…YES! She stirred at 1.30AM and when Chris got up to go to the toilet at some point around 3.30AM, but didn’t wake up completely.
Naps…first nap of the day – NO CRYING, just a few whimpers when I put her down in the crib. Second nap of the day, 1 round of 3 minutes of crying, same for her third nap. She stayed awake from 3PM to 6.45PM. No crying at bed time when she went down in her crib!
The best part of the day was how fun and happy she was playing. My favourite part of the day was when she got super excited at the musical cow and wanted to put it in her mouth, she tried but it was too big so she got upset. She also has started to lean forward and try to bounce herself in the ExerSaucer bouncer and grip onto the toys. She is getting really strong at standing up too, her balance is getting better and can now stand just holding onto my fingers. I basically had the perfect day with her on my own! (Apart from the poo explosion in the shops but that’s just OK, I’m getting used to handling these!)
Day 6 summary. Aviana nursed calmly, went down easily for all her naps, kept to the 3 hour feed schedule. Slept for 10.5 hrs through the night. This is really starting to work.
