Sleep and Some Cuteness

OH MY GOSH! I HAVE FOUND IT! THE KEY TO SLEEP! I AM IN LOVE! Enfamil Restfull, yes it does happen to be $16.99 a can at Target, but I don't care! They slept, they actually slept and I actually had to wake them up! It fills them up more and digests slower.

The last month since starting cereal had been hard, they wouldn't eat as much bottle before bed and I was getting up about three times a night to feed. Usually Aaden twice and Noah once, well NOT last night!

Even better, they don't need to eat as much before bed. In the past in order to get them to sleep through the night they needed 10 oz., and with the cereal filling them up more, they would no longer take bottles that big. Last night Noah had 6 oz. and Aaden had 4 oz. of the stuff (along with 2 oz. of regular formula about a half hour earlier.)

I only woke up once at 4 a.m. to give Aaden 2 more oz. and right back to bed he went. This stuff is amazing! Don't worry the boys get plenty of regular formula during the day along with oatmeal twice and one to two servings of fresh baby food I made myself. Today is peas! They have already had squash, and sweet potatoes. Tomorrow is carrots. I am so EXCITED! Sleep feels so good and makes us all so refreshed.

Isn't this cuteness just too much to handle? My Mom took this in our living room one day when I was at work and she surprised me with it for Valentine's Day. I have a bunch more I will post soon.

Oh man, why didn't they have that formula when my babies were little??!!

I know, isn't it amazing how much more human you feel when you get some much-needed sleep?!

It's so much fun when they're trying new foods...I used to love the way my babies would wrinkle their noses each time they tried something new. If they turn anything away, try it again in a few more days. So funny how one day they would hate sweet potatoes but then 5 days later, they loved it.

Each time I see pics of your adorable little men, it makes me miss when my kids were that age. Even though this stage can be somewhat difficult, try to enjoy every minute. I wish I had taken the time to enjoy it more.

seriously? that pic is too cute! :)

we just started cereal tonight. wonder how it's going to continue to go?? hmmmm.....

how long did it take your kids to "get" cereal? you know, before they were actually able to consume some of it instead of spitting it all out?

I just stopped by through a link on another site. I have a few suggestions, call your medical insurance provider and ask about enferal formulas and if they will cover the expense. Insurance will cover certain formulas for newborns/infant under one year of age.

I say this because our medical coverage paid 100% for our son's formula (Similiac Alimentium $27 per can/lasted 3 days). He was allergic to soy and lactose proteins. Still is lactose intollerant.

We did need a perscription from his pediatrician, all I am passing along is a tip to call and see what they will cover. You may be surprised, I was...

Your babies are beautiful, enjoy them they grow so fast.

What a sweet gift idea.
