Hey Az, where are you? Our LLL is like Sly's, fairly casual unless we have new people with questions or anyone with an urgent bf issue to discuss/fix/share. There are rotating topics and the different groups seem to all be at a different point in the rotation, and I think I have groups 3/4 weeks of the month that I can hit day or evening. It's just a nice calm thing to do.
Remember the meds are just a short term thing, you aren't going on ppd meds for life, and you are prepared well, knowing that it's coming, rather than being there with nowhere to turn. I think I'd get the prescription filled and keep it on hand, but that's just me.
Ugh, yah, I hope it's not reflux either, yet I kinda wish it is, so we can get past the screaming and ugliness of it all. If a little maloxx my kid, then I'm jumping on that bandwagon, it's really stressful when I'm home alone with her and she's screaming and wants to eat because it feels good, yet the eating makes it hurt that much more when she's done. I'm half tempted to get a binky again, as sucking apparently helps keep things down between meals.
I don't know what dh did, or what baby tranquilizer he has in his pocket, but she's been sleeping since about 3:45, and it's 7:30 now. Hopefully she'll wake to diaper/eat and then sleep all night. I'd prefer that over a 4am wakeup call
Oooh and I'm excited, tomorrow we have nowhere to go, so I'm thinking of trying for a coverless if not partially diaper free day. Found a lap pad set at tjmaxx that had a crib size pad in it, and I think I could add straps and make an apron out of it, something nice and soft and water resistant for naked baby to hang out on. Someone on my ec list just suggested making aprons the other day, perhaps a cottage industry for me?
Funny, I cancelled our well baby visit last week because we were both sick, called today to reschedule it, and they are booked until MAY! So I also said that I think she's having big reflux issues and could we get a sick visit this week to deal with that, and they of course scheduled us right in for Thurs. Funny thing is, I think all they do at well visits are height/weight and shots, right? So why they can't do that during our sick visit I don't know, but when the lady asked when her 2mth bday was so she could schedule it, she told me it was ok to bring sick babies to well visits, they just wait to do the shots for another day, but they can't do my well visit when we're coming for a sick visit. Hrm?? Methinks they have nutty policy, and maybe it's time to switch to the family practice where they are a little more normal.
G'nite, I'm waiting for dh to get home from school and then I'm going to bed.
