I don't know what is going on with him...but he is gaining weight faster than I can keep up!! Since Lulu was - and is still - so small (she still wears some 12-18 month clothes at 26 months), I guess I'm just not used to the normal growth of a child...maybe?!
Whatever it is, I think I need to stop feeding him.
As of right now, he eats whatever the family eats - in addition to his 4 8oz bottles of formula - at mealtime...talk about a little (fat) piglet! The only reason I started giving him table food is because if I don't then he SCREAMS - it is THE most ear piercing noise you have ever heard (I will post a vlog on this soon). I mean, don't get me wrong - he is a cutie pie!! It just seems like every picture I have of him, is of him eating something...
Chewing on a goldfish (while sporting his sister's new hat)
Sucking down some formula
Munching on a butter cookie
Stealing cheese curls from his sister
He even goes after the dog's food!!
Bubba has gotten so big that his chubby legs get caught between the slats of his bed and he can't get them unstuck. I have finally begun to realize what all the screaming is about after the first 5 minutes of nap time - which is more like sibling-talk-time-therapy. I have to go back into the room and get fatty's leg out from the slats before he can go to sleep.
I have a crib bumper up and I always try to put him down on the opposite side of the crib from where he gets stuck. Nothing works though.
Do any of you moms out there have - or maybe have had - this issue with your chitlin?? Is there any good solution to keep his legs from getting stuck in the slats??
