Month 6: Schedule (C)

Not a ton of changes with schedule this month, though the 2nd nap is getting closer to 12:30pm – A takes his around noon and C right afterwards.  Also, the third nap mostly happens but he is starting to refuse it occasionally.  We started solids and so far he loves everything 🙂  He started sleeping on his tummy and is starting to be able to replace pacifier himself.

Right when he turned 5 months old he got sick for the first time 😦  I felt awful for him.  Afterwards, we got back on track and he was feeling good, back to his normal self, and sleeping well again, but the last 2 weeks before he turned 6 months old he started to have night wakings where he doesn’t cry, but sort of whines and practices trying to crawl instead.  I check on him to make sure he isn’t sick/hurt/wet/etc. and then sort of leave him to it.  He puts himself back to sleep, though I feel these “happy wakings” might be a result of too much napping during the day?  He has typically loved a good nap, and has no problem sleeping 2.5 hours at a time, so as he begins refusing the 3rd nap and moving to just 2 naps, I might try to limit his naps to total closer to 3 hours for the day.
