Cooper update, upping meds
Hello all. So teething is still going rough and now I have bronchitis. I went to the dr yesterday and wouldn't you know after feeling sick for 1 day, it is already in my chest! Dh is working an extra shift at work this week to so he hasn't been getting in until 3am. Luckily my mom and mil have helped out alot with Cooper. He is still teething and bitting most every time he nurses. NOt sure what to do about that. He has also been spitting up a lot more too. So we upped his prevacid to 15mg 2x daily as well as a tsp of mylanta for the breakthrough. We'll see how this helps. He is sleeping in his crib for the first of the night, and then usually on me the rest of the night. Which I like right now, b/c I hate him being in the other room since dh isn't at home. Hopefully he doesn't get sick and we'll all start feeling better soon.

seamus' mama
Seamus was born 7/6/07, one month early with Silent Reflux. Zantac since 3 weeks old, currently taking herbs and probiotics.
Bronchitis- yuck! I hope you get better soon and that Cooper doesn't get it. With all that mama's milk, he should be fine..It's amazing how well they sleep when they are actually on your body! Seamus is 22 pounds and he prefers that position when he is not feeling so hot..I have to flop half of his body on the mattress. Snuggling is so special. It is nice to do extra cuddling when dh isn't around physically or mentally.It will be nice when he is around more often during the night!I hope that the increase in Prevacid helps Cooper out. Is he beginning to lunge onto his belly from a seated position? We had a huge reflux increase at this developmental stage but then it simmered down once s started crawling and spending more time upright.. Good luck and hope you rest well tonight.

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
I'm so sorry you're sick! That's so hard when you have a little one. I remember when Morgan and I slept in. She was in her crib till dh went to work then when she woke up I'd put her in bed with me. So cuddly. Mags has NEVER slept in the bed with me. We slept in the chair many nights, but that was not the same :) I hope his dose helps. Maybe after a spell, you'll be able to drop it down again.

mom to Mila 2-20-2007
and Robby 4-22-2004
Mila is on Peptamen JR 30 cal by NG tube. Open Heart Surgery 2/08/08. Captopril, Zantac, Losec, Lasix.
I'm sorry you are sick with DH gone! I'm just plain sorry that you are sick!!! As for the biting, Robby bit a few times and I just screeched, put him down, and walked away. Every single time. He stopped after that cause he didn't want to to be put down.
Check with your
doctor first!
