Where are the Sept '10 babies? - Page 7

post #121 of 658

Clayton ended up having 5 more seizures. We spent 3 days at a Children's Hospital and he had to have an EEG, MRI, Bloodwork and a lot of waiting to rule out any problems. The last seizure was the worst, his oxygen level dropped so much he almost had to have a breathing tube placed, thankfully just an oxygen mask was enough. We got home yesterday.

 

The verdict is that it is a genetic disorder (I had them, so did my daughter and other family members), but they needed to be sure that was all that was going on before treating. He is now on phenobarbital and will be reevaluated in 4-6 months.

 

So yeah.

 

He's still the sweetest baby ever and was such a trooper through this all.

Oh my gosh, I can't even imagine! I'm glad you are all home and hopefully the seizures decrease soon! Is this what happened with your daughter? Can't remember if you said whether she still gets them or not. My little sister (not so little, she's almost 18!) had had seizures nearly all her life. It's pretty terrifying even if you know what to do. 

 

Kelly- Caden JUST started eating his foot last week. He's a very strong, stiff, and sturdy babe and just couldn't bend his legs that way! My very flexible niece OTH has been eating her foot since she was 4 months old. Maybe your little chunker has too much chub in the way to get his foot up that high! 

 

Marilyn- I love Mila's name:) I must admit whenever I read it I do pronounce it Mee-la until you put somewhere in your post how it is pronounced. Must be the spelling that throws me off? Hopefully people get used to it!

Glad to hear everyone's home from the hospital and a treatment plan's in place.  Clayton is lucky to have experienced parents to help him.  Hugs 

 

I love seeing all these babies!!!  Lila and her sister are just precious, how amazing!  E has yet another cold from her brothers, I'm ready for spring!

My daughter no longer gets them, so I hope that is the same with him. The Neurologist believe it is a genetic disorder (since we have such a strong family history).

 

 

He is much happier today and even took a nap on his own without being held! It was amazing. :)

Mommy and baby in the hospital. Everyone thought he was a girl in the gown.

So glad to hear Clayton's doing better and is at home. **Hugs**

Mommy2chloerae:  I'm glad to hear Clayton's home from the hospital.  I hope the phenobarbital keeps the seizures in check.  hug.gif

 

I love seeing all these pics of our DDC babies!  I keep meaning to upload camera pics onto my computer...I'll have to do so this weekend so I can post a few of my skinny Bean (was 13 lbs 15.5oz at her 5 1/2 month checkup (delayed b/c of all the snow)).  If I didn't push her out myself, I'd wonder whose kid she was! lol.gif

 

I can't believe my little baby's going to be 6 months on Sunday!  We're going to give solids a try then...should be messy and fun!  I have to admit, I'm a little sad about no longer being her only source of food (even if I'm still the primary one)...

 

(Are you guys going to do baby-led weaning, purees, or a mix?  I'm leaning towards a mix, myself, but curious as to how others are going to approach the solid food adventure...)

I think a mix. He is interested in food, grabs at mine, etc so I feel like he will accept them when the time comes. My husband is anxious to start him, and I think I will be happy when he is ready :) He is over 20lbs and nurses frequently which can be really draining.

Did a mix with Em, will likely do the same with Ozzy.  Not starting him on solids yet, though, even though his sister was already eating solids at his age (a week shy of 6 months).  He just doesn't seem to be showing as many signs of readiness as she did.

We're planning to do BLW, but will play it by ear as we go and use purees if there's a situation in which it makes sense.

 

I was trying to post earlier during the forum outage that Caitlin just recently seems to enjoy taking medicine. Both Mylicon and Tylenol, she opens wide when she sees me get the dropper out of the bottle, and she licks the liquid and swallows well. I was thinking that's a sign of solids readiness (no tongue thrust with the medicine) and wondered if anyone else's babe does the same thing.

 

Then I was holding her during dinner tonight and trying to rip a piece of pita bread off to eat, doing it quickly to keep her hands away, but she was super speedy and grabbed a chunk and shoved it in her mouth. I guess she was ready to eat. :) She managed to slobber on and chew off most of it and then swallow it, about a 2" square piece in all. She seemed to enjoy it. If daddy got good photos I'll post one once I get a chance to get them off the camera.

No, you are right, it is pronounced Mee-la! People are mispronouncing it as My-lah, which I hate lol.

 

Kelly, those pics of Ozzy are sooo cute, his little cheeks are totally to die for!

 

mommy2chloerae - So clad to hear your little boy is doing better. It sounds like you are handling it really well (well, as good as can be expected anyway). I hope the medication helps.

We are just letting C eat what we eat, only in small chunks or a little smashed. We don't puree anything since he is fine with the chunks and since we eat very healthy, he's getting a variety of foods. Yesterday he even grabbed and sucked on a lemon slice for a happy, silent 10 minutes. I'm sure you mamas understand how ~amazing~ it is to have a quiet 10 minutes from a 6 mo! He LOVED lemon, oddly enough... In fact, he hasn't turned away ANY foods and they only thing he made a funny face at was water (because of the temperature I think). 

 

So funny how he grins and breathes in that happy/fast way when I set him in the highchair!!! This kid loves food so much we have to eat during his nap or in another room if we don't want to feed him....

 

It's pretty crazy to think that this time last year, Caden was just a tiny 1.5ish inch baby inside me and I was sick every minute of the day. I will gladly take my very interrupted sleep and an energetic baby over that any day!!!

post #134 of 658
Wow! Glad others are talking solids! We will be starting sometime in march and honestly I'm really worried! I don't know why. He's been sitting by himself for a while grabs at food....I guess it's just a big milestone. My little baby isn't so little anymore! Our Internet is down so I'm posting from my phone! I'll post again when the Internet is back. I have an amazing video to share.
post #135 of 658

Ha, it's nothing to worry about!  It's just recreation until closer to a year old, anyway... letting them play with food and see how much they'll actually get in their mouth and swallow.  

post #136 of 658

That is so sweet!  So far we've been doing mostly homemade purees with Reece, which he totally digs.  He'll give me a little grut if I'm not feeding him fast enough. Haha!

Ok if you want to see some super cute babies in action at the aquarium go check out the video my husband made! http://vimeo.com/20450181 In this Video my son Mark is 5months and my nephew Vincent is 23 months.

I can't believe my sweet baby's 6 months old!  We started solids on Friday--avocado.  We ended up giving her a few pieces to play with and also mashing some up and giving it to her on the spoon.  She seemed to like the avocado, and even more so liked to help us put the spoon in her mouth.  lol.gif  She gagged a bit on the larger pieces of avocado, and I have to be honest, I'm just not sure I'm tough enough to handle her gagging when she still seems so small.  Maybe we'll try a bit more BLW in a few more weeks when I've gotten a bit more used to her eating solids.

 

A few pictures of my spirited, challenging, amazing little girl:

Wow I can not believe all  the updates since I was last on. I found the most AMAZING church where babies almost out number people! Not really but so many mamma's to share with and learn from I have been so blessed lately. Life is going so good for Timmy. I enjoy hearing how all the babies and growing. I have been at my wits end since I have been forced to switch to Bottle feeding Timmy due to his allergies but since giving up the boob he has lost all Gas, Bloating, Bleeding and pains in general. It was a sad last feeding but we prayed on it and I tried to keep pumping but I gave up It was so hard. And they say to avoid ANY foods until 7 MONTHS! :( I may get another opinion. Timmy will not sit up when we try to hold he he purposefully leans forward to eat his toes but will turn his head up to see TV or DADDY It looks very uncomfortable and funny but hes happy. He loves his toes. and if he is on his back he QUICKLY rolls to tummy and gets upset I have tried to show him how to finish the roll back to his back but he has no interest when he can scream for me to do it ha. He only loves to be on his tummy for about 4 seconds. Sometimes he comes to work with me so here is a pic of him at DH's desktimmydadsdesk.jpg

Here are some pictures of my baby in a tiny suit. It's my husband's album, let me know if you can't look at it.

I suppose we'll start solids around 6 months. He's starting to get interested and tries to drink from my cup. We're planning to do BLW.

All day he's been napping poorly and waking up crying. Now he's asleep on his dad. I dunno what the deal is, but I should sleep in whatever position I want while I have the chance!
