Well, I contacted the Moby wrap people. They said their wrap should fit me, but they also have an extra-long one that is 1/2 meter longer than the standard. So I ordered that one. Better safe than sorry. Plus, my husband who's larger and taller can probably wear the extra long one easier too. I'm excited to get the wrap! I tried to go for a walk with DD with the pouch today...it went well for about 2 minutes. Then she started screaming. But...she is sleeping right now and has been for about 30 minutes! I know, I get excited about the smallest things.
I just know her. When she sleeps during the day, she sleeps better at night.
Her tummy is so bloated. I have cut out dairy from my diet. I don't eat much straight soy, but I know it's in everything, so I'm trying to eliminate that too.
After my nipples heal from thrush, I will let her try to nurse again. I plan on it. My nipples are incredibly painful right now, though. I pump on a very low setting and it hurts. When she tries to nurse, she clamps down and I can't take it right now. I have an LC and she said to wait until the thrush heals because it's pretty bad.
I'm still undecided about the acid reflux meds. I looked up Axid and it appears that, even though it's not approved for children younger than 12, it's commonly used in infants who cannot tolerate zantac. It's in the same drug class. I was wrong. I thought it was a proton pump inhibitor, but it's not. I guess I'm leaning toward trying the meds. She does get lots of hiccups and seems rather uncomfortable on her back. I can try it for a week. It can't hurt too much, I suppose. I hate the idea of giving her medicine that I'm not sure she needs, though. I know it's a shot in the dark. But if that is what half of her irritability is, she may get a lot of relief.
That's a good idea to go to a compounding pharmacy to get the zantac. The ped gastro doc thought it might be a reaction to the med, though, which caused her to vomit. So I'm afraid to try it again.
I am going to reread all these posts because they're really helpful. Thank you all so much. I don't feel like I'm going to lose my mind today.
