ENT appt today. No tongue/lip tie. I trust her. Had kinda hoped this would give us a solution but Nope.
Guess I need to just accept that I have a baby with some colic & strong will issues and not keep trying to fix him. She did suggest starting solids in the hopes that the bulking up (he has chronic diarrhea) will lessen the reflux/gi issues. He did okay on rice cereal when I tried it a few weeks ago (stopped to try to let his system grow more) but I'm going to try banana tonight.
He woke with a watery eye, runny nose & sneezing. Think he's got his first cold. He was up for 8 hrs today and only took a 15 min nap in the car! Crazy boy.
ENT did look at dd2 and said her throat/tonsils are back to being swollen even after 5 days of antibiotics (she was getting worse after being sick for 10 days) so if it doesn't clear (she had to have steroids to get the swelling down before) and/or gets sick with the swelling again within 6 wks then we'll do surgery to take out her tonsils and maybe adenoids.
Okay-So, I read the last 2 pages of posts (can't believe how fast posts rack up here-lol) and I'm sorry for those of you struggling with the sleep issues. It's SO hard. I can tell when I'm sleep deprived because it's so much harder to function. I think it's even harder when a. it's your first baby or b. they've given you a period of good sleep and then regress and if you've got the combo then it's a double-whammy. Just my opinion.
LNF: sorry for what you're having to go through. It must be so frustrating to say the least.
JSH: I think your plan sounds good. DS2 took 10 days of bad nights to get used to sleeping w/out the swaddle. And, I think you're making realistic steps in helping her learn to self-soothe. Being a mom is hard work.
RHI: I don't know how all of you workoutofthehouse moms do it. With a possible divorce looming, I know I will have to and I'm dreading even the thought. I agree, maybe find some good crockpot meals you can throw together in the morning so you don't have to take extra time after picking her up???
Ivy: caffeine is what's keeping me going as well even though I have some friends harping on me about it while bf'ing.
P&H: Thanks for adding me & JR to the list!
Everyone else: have already forgotten the posts I read on page 3. Hoping you're all doing well!
