Baby Checklist. Month 11 Week 4
1. I know how to recognize if my toddler is having an allergic reaction. Brenan can eat allergenic foods now, so it’s safe to give Brenan shellfish, citrus and berries. I’ll introduce these foods slowly and watch for any reactions.
2. My toddler goes back and forth between being really independent and really clingy! When we’re in a familiar place, Brenan runs off to play, but in new situations, Brenan stays close to me.
3. My toddler can switch to cow’s milk now. If I want, I can start replace formula or breastmilk with cow’s milk now. It’s fine for me to keep breastfeeding, too!

4. I took a few minutes this week to read through the inspirational quotes about moms that my friends are sharing on social media. I totally relate to them!
5. I dropped my baby off at daycare or with a sitter so I could have a lunch date with my partner.
6. My partner and I have talked about whether we want another baby, and we’ve talked about the timing of when we want to start trying for number two!
7. My baby turned one, and Brenan is officially a toddler! Congratulations to our whole family — we made it through the first year!

1. My toddler says at least 3 words besides “mama” and “dada,” and Brenan understands several additional words.
2. My baby may have outgrown Brenan’s infant car seat! Time for a convertible. I’m getting one that will last for a few years.
3. I joined a local mom’s group like MOPS or a neighborhood playgroup so I can get together with other moms.

4. I did something to help myself feel pretty, like putting on makeup, sprucing up an outfit with nice shoes, or wearing jewelry.
5. I’m making time this week to just sit by myself and not try to accomplish anything. A little quiet and privacy will do me some good!
6. I make sure I’m getting plenty of protein, especially if I’m working out regularly. A protein shake is a great way to keep my energy up.
7. I’m trying to get healthy in every area of my life! I’ve gotten rid of toxic chemicals in my house, and I’m avoiding food with chemicals, too.

Any advice for transitioning my 10 month old from sleeping with me to sleeping in his crib. I don't believe in any form of CIO.
