Last Baby & Starting Solids + Video

It’s been a quick six months in many ways and it’s time to give baby Isabella rice cereal for the first time. But I’m finding it difficult to do because she is my last little one and I don’t want her to grow up!

I’ve started an unlisted YouTube channel to go along with my blog so there’s more to this post below, in video form. 🙂

  1. Oh goodness, yes! We are not planning to have more babies. I’m not feeling all nostalgic with breastfeeding – I absolutely hate it! Once Nora takes a bottle, I’m out. For me, it’s the baby clothes. I tried to get rid of them a couple months ago, and I just couldn’t do it. My solution is to keep the ones I liked and found the most useful and then give them to my brother-in-law, who just got married.
    Just the other day, I caught myself thinking how much Nora has grown already and feeling a little bit sad that there won’t be any more tiny babies… which is ridiculous because I’m really not a huge fan of the super tiny baby stage! I think it’s just the hormones talking.

    1. You’re not a fan of breastfeeding? Did something happen?
      That’s a good idea with the baby clothes. I put certain ones away for each child but most I donate to our charity shop.
      Hormones definitely play a role! Ovulation time has always sparked interest for me, haha, even if things were really stressful, I wanted a new baby!

      1. Both my kids have a lip tie, so breastfeeding is super painful. I’m not “well-endowed”, so nursing bras don’t fit and I’ve been wearing (very hot) tanks. I’d love to just be able to wear a bra and a dress and not have to be eating oatmeal when it’s 100 degrees just to keep my supply up!
        Can we all just agree that hormones are the worst? I haven’t gone to the doctor about it (even though I know I should!), but I feel like breastfeeding triggers PPD for me. It happened with Noah, and I see it happening again. Please pray that Nora will decide that bottles aren’t the worst!

  2. It’s so weird you posted this. I was feeling/thinking this exact same thing this morning. We’ve been introducing solids more now and I can’t believe we’re at this point already. I don’t know if my little boy will be my last, but if he is then I find myself holding on to every little thing – food, moving up a size in baby clothes, teethers. Ugh, motherhood is so emotional.

    1. Great minds! 😉 ((hugs)) How’s he doing with solids? What does he like?
      I remember feeling somewhat like this with my third baby because I had waited so long to have him after miscarrying but I believed we would have more children after him so it wasn’t this intense. I know I’ll be okay, it’s just going to be bittersweet seeing them all grow up.
      By the way, I did do rice cereal with Isabella on Sunday but she did the tongue thrust so she’s not ready quite yet. Yay!! lol

      1. So far he likes sweet potato and butternut squash. I tried some rice teethers, but he hated it lol. I read a great post the other day which said “You’ll always miss the weight” of having a new baby. That even when children are grown and having their own you’ll always mourn the end of that season of life. I don’t know why, but that brought me comfort.
