Help with sleep!

My 3 month old always slept swaddled in a bassinet next to our bed. It helped him sleep as he would constantly wake him self up with arm flailing. He is now newly able to (almost) roll over, we have stopped swaddling and have brought him into our bed. The arm flailing is still happening!

Stinky Poo

About a week or so ago, my (now) 11 week old baby started having horribly smelly poops. He is exclusively breastfed and I haven’t really had any crazy changes to my diet.

Waking Too Early

My 9 week old goes to bed every night at 8:30. He wakes up for a feeding somewhere between 3:00 - 4:30 and will be back to sleep 20 -30 mins later. All that’s great, but he wakes up around 6:00-630 consistently. Anything I can do to push back his awake time?

Disney with Infant

We’re scheduling our Disney World vacation for our (then) 7 month old. I am very familiar with DW as I am an annual pass holder and go about twice a year, but this will be my first time going with an infant. Any suggestions from experienced Disney parents? We’re staying at Wilderness Lodge and have already booked some character meals.
