Annie, a food sensitivity can make older kids wet, does he do it all the time or just randomly? I know one kid who every time he eats melon has an accident in the bed. Just something to think about.
Andy, ugh, if I could get the babe to take a bottle, heck, if I could get her to NOT eat every hour, I'd split.
Actually, after all the crying and drama yesterday (I really thought I was going to lose it) she slept from 10-4:30. Of course dh woke me at 11 (better 11 than 1, but still), and then I woke automatically at 1:30 since that's when she's been waking the last week, but she was just wiggling around a bit, sleeping, so I sat there until 2:30 waiting for her to wake (why can't I be an easy sleeper) and must have drifted off because next thing I knew she was rooting but still sleeping at 4:30. So in went boob, she was back to sleep and I changed her, she was barely wet, and wiggling (the "pee wiggle") so I put her on the pot and she went a big potty but woke up totally. Somehow I managed to dangle the diaper cover in the potty so I had to go find a new one (first time I've done that) and dumped the pot and let the dog out, etc. etc. and nursed her back to sleep by 5. Slept til 8, nursed and is sleeping again.
Yesterday really put all those crazy moms (baby shakers, baby killers, moms who walk away from their families) into perspective for me. I suppose the only difference between me and them is that I'm intentionally doing this crazy diet with a purpose and know my kid is hurting from the reflux. If I were a little more ignorant, I'd probably be one of the baby shakers. *shudder in a bad way*
Paq, thanks for the 411. Now it makes more sense. And *shudder in a bad way again* for the VanGogh with the ear taped on. That's scary. I think we'll skip that one. I want the one that does body parts and colors and maybe the water one.
Yaaay Will! Nurse baby, nurse!
Karen, oooh I never thought of the itunes graphics. That is total baby acid. Einstein is like that, it changes every 15 seconds to keep their attention and does some bright colors mixed with big bad sock puppets and such.
Hey Mary, this is a silly question, but waaaay up in N. Canada my friend's town - they all painted bright bright bright bands of color around their homes so you could see them in the storms - do y'all not get white cars in AK for the same reason?
Laura, hehehe, maybe you can teach her about all the kinds of milk, milk from rice, milk from goats, milk from beans, etc.
Ok gotta shower, I'm having company today and while the bathroom is clean and dh is in charge of the kitchen, I still need to shower and dress and clean the living room and get out the door in an hour. Yikes!
