Lauras Daily Madness

I never realized how fast I could move..

Ok so I have to admit it. Evie is not the perfect baby. *gasp!* Sure she sleeps all the time, gains weight perfectly and looks adorable in dresses.. but underneath all that is her hidden flaw. Or not so hidden if its 5:30 in the morning, you're completely asleep and then all of a sudden.. you're covered in spit up milk. I'm not talking about a little. I'm talking about an ounce or two. I think my darling daughter is overeating as this is the tenth time or so that she's done this.. but I'm not sure. I'm glad she's a good nurser.. maybe a little TOO good though.

Mom brought over some thing that they gave her at the doctor when I was 3 months old. I find it interesting that even in 1983 the formula companies were advertising through the doctor's offices. It says ENFAMIL on it by formula. First off, at 3 months I weighed 17lbs. WOW! I was a chunk.

Ok so here are some of the highlights.

Offer baby orange juice or tomato juice (4-6 tablespoons or as much as baby will take)
Bathe baby. Bottle feed and give 1 tablespoon precooked cereal.

A short sunbath may be given if weather permits, followed by a long nap (indoors or outdoors, according to the weather).

Later, if the weather is nice, give baby an airing in his buggy.

Undress baby in late afternoon and put him on big bed to kick and stretch. Make sure open sides of bed are guarded.

Offer baby plain, boiled water two to three times a day.

Keep in mind this is for 4-5 month old babies. Wow how times have changed.

I need to take pictures. I'll get on that this weekend.

That is too funny Laura!! I think my favorite parts are about the juice and the "airing in his buggy" haha! My sister sent me this email about an article that I think was in Home and Gardens or something like that and it was about what you should do for your husband when he gets home from work. It was pretty hilarious. I should try and find it and send it to you. Yes, times have changed for sure! ;)

Ok, I found it! It's kind of totally unrelated, but the list your Mom gave you about what you should do for your baby reminded me of this article in Good Housekeeping in 1955, so I thought I'd share! haha! I think it's pretty hilarious! :)
