SNB, that sounds hard
Queer parents - Page 17
The pediatrician at the hospital also prescribed the fortified preemie formula for one feeding a day for us.we decided to watch their weight and hold off on it since we hated the idea of giving them formula. They have been gaining weight like champs. In 3 weeks our little guy has gained 1 lb. 12 ozs. And our big guy 1 lb. 9 ozs!
Loving the photos and news--especially this group's multiples since a good friend is expecting twins soon and it gives me a hint of what they may look/be like (so happy for her and can't wait to meet the kiddos--she's almost 36 weeks). My kiddos are doing well. Big boy started preschool (speech group one day a week, regular preschool three days a week and Sunday School too) and that's been a big change. I know he really enjoys preschool--and with the baby, it's nice for him to have some big boy time. But, it has made the flow of our week SO different and SO suddenly (and I've really enjoyed our flexibility and ability to do what we want when we want and have energy for it). It also makes it very obvious that despite our raging liberal friend group and community--we are clearly in the minority as a queer family. Having to cross out mother/father language for the neighborhood preschool really bummed me out (especially since the director was clearly excited to have a same sex family--yup, love being other folks' cultural capital...sigh).
But, as I said, big boy is doing well--albeit tired...
Little boy seems huge. He has his four month well child in a couple of weeks (closer to five months--yikes!) but we think he is around 15/16 pounds and he seems REALLY long. He is starting to organize his naps during the day--which complicated preschool drop off/pick up on two of the days. He seems to be going in the direction of short napper and long night sleeper--which we are happy to encourage. Altho' it does make it tricky to get anything done. My mother in law is in town (for the first time since baby was born and second time in 3 years). She enjoys playing grandma and the kids enjoy her (it annoys me that she takes on the grandma role so abruptly when she seems so disinterested the rest of the time...but, oh well).
Kids are waking...gotta go!
I googled it and it is a common enough thing that there are quite a few results that come up first of the exact situation that happened with him. But it still doesn't make feel any better that I didn't help him out sooner, before he turned blue.
Dr. Google said it was a confusion between the suck/swallow/breathing technique and he choked/was drowning. My first thinking was let-down related, but it was almost immediately after being put on (though I was dripping already when he got on) and I didn't feel it in my other breast like I usually do with let-downs. He did have spit up about 20 minutes earlier. And while he was sucking on the pacifier he had two large burps and it sounded like gulping afterwards, sonit could have been spit up/reflux related?
