I'm not fan of rice cereal we started with oatmeal and then applesauce. We are slowly working our way through the different flavors rotating veggies and fruit every few days

making baby food is so much better than jarred baby foods it's easy to make, inexpensive, and taste way better

Baby Checklist. Week #1
1. My baby’s crib might look sparse right now — no blankets or pillows! I use a sleep sack to keep Austin warm at night.
2. It may just be a reflex, but it’s still the sweetest thing when my baby grabs my finger if I touch Austin’s palm. Austin also has strong opinions — Austin cries to tell me how Austin feels! Right now Austin can only see black and white patterns, not colors, so Austin likes to look at patterns with strong contrast.
3. I’m in the “fourth trimester,” and I still look pretty pregnant! I’m wearing comfortable clothes, like the maternity pants I wore in the first trimester.

4. I’ve got my baby’s safety kit ready with a digital thermometer, a night light and a nasal aspirator.
5. If I plan to pump, I’ve got a good electric or manual pump. An electric pump is essential if I need to pump full-time; a manual is fine if I’ll only need to pump occasionally.
6. Is my baby getting enough to eat? Sometimes it’s hard to tell! If I’m concerned, I won’t hesitate to ask my pediatrician or lactation consultant.
7. Baby doesn’t get very dirty right now, but I’ve learned how to give Austin a sponge bath. I won’t be using the baby bath or putting Austin all the way in the water till after his cord falls off.

Pregnancy Checklist. Week #35
1. My prenatals are every week now. My calendar is full of them — I’ve got them scheduled through week 41, just in case. My doctor also scheduled my Group B strep test.
2. I’m prepared for any emergency! I’ve put together a baby first-aid kit and emergency kit.
3. “False” labor or real? Nothing feels false about these Braxton-Hicks contractions! But I’ve talked with my doctor, and I know how to tell the difference between pre-labor contractions and the “real thing.” (Hint: if a warm bath makes it stop, it’s not time to head to the hospital yet.)
View full
4. I need a lot of calories right now, but my stomach barely has any space — I can only eat a few bites at one time. So I’ve adjusted my schedule to make time for 5-7 meals instead of 3. Basically, it’s always time for a snack.
5. I gave a friend or neighbor our house key and instructions on how to take care of our pets while we’re gone.
6. We finally agreed on our baby’s middle name. Whew. Ready to fill in the birth certificate!
7. I’ve got my labor plan written down, and I hung it somewhere my partner will be able to find it (even if he’s freaking out). It lists who to call, how to arrange pet sitting or childcare, and how to get to the hospital or birth center.

Pregnancy Checklist. Week #33
1. My partner and I did a test drive to the hospital to see how long it really takes to get there. Okay, actually we did several test drives. At different times of day. And mapped three different routes, just in case.
2. Epidural, natural, or c-section? I’ve finished writing my birth plan, complete with back-up options if things don’t go according to plan.
3. I’ve read about postpartum recovery and what my body will be like after birth. Hint: I’m not going to be wearing those skinny jeans again as soon as I hoped. I packed some first-trimester maternity clothes to wear home from the hospital.

4. I’ve been wearing maternity support hose. They’re supposed to help prevent fluid retention, swelling feet, and aches. I’m not sure if they’re helping or not!
5. I’ve made my labor playlist! I downloaded music I want to listen to during labor. I’ve included a mix of soft, relaxing music and energetic pushing music.
6. I’ve learned about pumping and storing breast milk if I plan to breastfeed. I’ve made space in my freezer for lots of bottles of milk!
7. I bought my nursing bra and other supplies like breastfeeding-friendly bottles and a breast pump.

Pregnancy Checklist. Week #34
1. If I’m planning a home birth, I’ve talked with my midwife about safety plans and back-up care if necessary.
2. My bags are packed! I packed my hospital bag with all my essentials, from toiletries and entertainment to directions to the hospital, copies of my insurance cards, and my birth plan. I also packed a separate bag with newborn essentials, and a third bag for my partner. Now we just have to remember all three when we dash out the door.
3. I’m ready to relax postpartum. I’ve got several weeks of dinners cooked, frozen and ready to heat. I won’t have to set foot in the kitchen for a month.
View full
4. I washed all the baby clothes and put them away. They’re organized in the nursery dresser, arranged by size and season.
5. I talked with my employer to finalize when my last day will be before maternity leave. And I’ll be honest: I’m counting down the days till my “vacation”!
6. ROA, LOP, transverse, breech…there’s a lot more to baby’s position than just head down! My doctor and I have talked about how my baby is positioned right now. I understand how position can affect labor, and my doctor and I have talked about any concerns and my options.
7. My baby’s swing is assembled and ready to go. (Who knew a piece of baby gear could take up so much space in my living room?)

Pregnancy Checklist. Week #32
1. I figured out who will take care of my older kids and pets when labor starts. I have a back-up person in case my first choice can’t get here right away.
2. I toured my hospital or birth center. That recovery room is gorgeous!
3. I’ve thought about who I want to ask to be my child’s godparents — maybe relatives or close family friends.

4. I’ve been counting kicks! At least, I’m trying. Right now they’re coming so fast I can’t keep up — it’s like I have an octopus in there!
5. I know they’re just going to get spit-up all over them, but I couldn’t resist buying that expensive pair of booties with the matching onesie. We’ll take a couple of pictures in them before they get ruined.
6. I interviewed pediatricians in my area, and I chose a great one for my baby! I think she’ll be a great partner for my baby’s health.
7. My doctor scheduled me for a biophysical profile. This will include an ultrasound and nonstress test to make sure my baby is still healthy through the third trimester.

1. I’ve researched the pros and cons of home birth. I love the idea of being in the comfort of my own home, but being in a hospital makes it easier to get specialized care in an emergency.
2. How much do I want to spend on birth announcements? I’ve been shopping for birth announcements, and I’ve decided whether I want to send fancy cards, digital announcements, or just an email to everyone on my list.
3. I’ve added an important list to my birth plan: who can be in the delivery room with me. Sorry, mother-in-law, but you can’t come in till after the exciting part’s over.

4. My partner and I decided on our plan for vaccinations. We know which vaccinations our baby will get at birth, and we’ve discussed them with our doctor and put them on our birth plan.
5. I’ve installed the car seat (okay, actually my partner did). We took it to the fire station to have our installation checked by a car seat technician.
6. I’ve learned about crib safety and safe sleep for my baby. I made sure my crib meets all safety standards, and I’m saving all the blankets and pillows for when baby is older.
7. My house is clean! — and it might even stay that way. I hired a housecleaner or a friend so I didn’t have to work around my big belly with a broom.
