Sarah is Five! :-)

Little Sarah is five months old today! 🙂 Guess how we celebrated her birthday?

Uncle Eddie is also celebrating his birthday today. So we all decided to get together in the city to eat lunch or have fika together. We went to a very nice restaurant called Ritz very close to Kungsportsplatsen.

Baby Is Not Pooping So Often

So, as you all know I have been giving Sarah some food in very teeny, tiny portions to boost her appetite and confidence in eating. I noticed that her bowel movements have become less regular when she starts consuming solids. 

Like this week, I really think she hasn’t pooped at all for the whole week. And today is Saturday. That’s like six days of no pooping. And that must not feel so comfortable for her. I mean, I would get headache and feel very uneasy if I don’t go to toilet for even two days. 

Of course, Sarah drinks only breastmilk and teeny, tiny portions of fruits or veggies. But she has also a small stomach. And food after digested has to come out otherwise it will become toxic in the body. 

So I am going to start making a list of all the times that she poops, just like what I am doing with her food consumption. So that I can always go back to these lists and look at them anytime I want to, when needed. 

Her First Tooth?!

Oh my God! I really cannot believe it..! Sarah is only four and a half months but her first tooth just broke today. 

It is too soon! Elias got his first tooth when he was close to six months. 
Is Sarah going to be growing super fast from now on? Faster than her brother Elias? 😩 My little princess…! 😭 Don’t leave Mamma too soon, baby girl. 

Funnily enough, she was gnawing on my finger when I felt a sharp bite. It was at Siv’s birthday get-together, we were sitting around the dining table and I had Sarah sitting next to me. I purposely did not give her anything to eat, so I just let her chew on my finger in order to make her stay calm. Then she bit me hard with the tooth, I had to pull my finger off her mouth! One final check confirmed that she did have a tooth on the bottom part. 

At that moment I was scared that she would bite on me during breastfeeding. But luckily it did not happened, yet 😄👍🏽
