We hit a milestone here. Baby's First Ear Infection. Every baby in my family, ever, has gotten them, and I'm the only one who never got tubes. I figure, if she keeps getting them (as one would assume she will), we'll have them put tubes in at the same time as her first omphalocele surgery, which is going to be a year or two from now. That way we don't have to have an additional round of general anesthesia.
She's cranky, but the tylenol is helping. And soon, the amoxicillin will make her feel better for real. It's weird, I probably would have realized it was an ear infection a good 24 hours before I did, but I looked at her symptoms, and saw zebra instead of horse. Omphalocele babies tend to get colic more, and also commonly develop oral aversions. So her increased crankiness and screaming at the breast, I attributed to that. Also, we have to keep socks on her hands so she doesn't pull her tube out. So instead of pulling on her ears, she was just hitting herself in the side of the head. It feels weird, and oddly almost good, to be dealing with a normal baby issue.
