Pushing A Bean

We've set a plan in motion to tag-team and push the Bean harder.  First of all, we're starting to push her daytime feeds.  We've increased the daytime 1-hour bollus feeds, so we can decrease the night-time rate, and hopefully have less leakage.  So far, we've had some success.  In addition to that change, we're going to work on sitting up -- by doing it.  We're going to work harder on tummy time - either on the boppy, the wedge & boppy, the tummy-time mat or just reclined on a shoulder - which she really prefers.  Lastly, we're going to work more on feeding too, as soon as she can breathe well through her nose.

The cold is stirring in her lungs, as if her lungs are trying to clear themselves.  I hope so.  By holding her up on one of our shoulders, we think that should help her clean those lungs. 

Basically, we need to push her harder, engage and stimulate her as much as possible.  As much as we do work on, I just can't shake the feeling that we should be doing so much more. Why did I just have visions of Rick Moranis from the movie, Parenthood?  Yikes.

This minute, the Bean sleeps.  I guess that's allowed.
