Cayden has become more active this week. He stays woke longer. Still takes a ton of naps but he doesn't nap for long periods of time anymore. He was drinking 4oz per feeding. He's not on a schedule so I feed him when ever he's hungry. This week he has started drinking less milk. About 2-3 ounces per feeding. I also give him baby cereal once a day. Since he's drinking less milk I'm going to start giving him cereal twice a day.
I think he's drinking less because he wants some food now. He stares at us when we eat so we now put a little of whatever we are having on our finger and let him taste it. Not everything, just some stuff like if we have something that has juice or sauce in it, we will put some of that on our finger. When we eat watermelon we let him lick/suck on a big piece so that it doesn't break off in his mouth, and only for a few seconds. It's like he's sampling foods. He's still very gasy but the gas has not been upsetting his stomach since I changed his formula to Gerber Soothe.
I noticed that he starts to rub and touch his eyes when he's tired. This is something new. He also likes to touch and tap things with his hands. He doesn't really try to grab stuff yet. If you hand him something then he will grab it from you but I haven't seen him reaching for things yet.
