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.
