Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
I'm wondering, too! I hope all is well with your family.

seamus' mama
Seamus was born 7/6/07, one month early with Silent Reflux. Zantac since 3 weeks old, currently taking herbs and probiotics.
Hey chicas Thanks for asking..Well, after nights of Seamus doing CIO in the crib, he was only waking up 2-3 times a night, crying for 5-10 minutes. My dh and I were sleeping on the living room floor and we decided to move back into our room where the crib was. Dh was in a really bad depression and the crying was EXTRA hard to deal with..It was really difficult having Seamus crying in our room. My hubbie wasn't able to emotionally support me..I finally gave in and nursed my little boy to sleep. He was really grouchy all day long and was trembling at the sight of the crib. I took the side off the crib and pushed it against our mattress again. He has warmed up to the crib and I am putting him in there for most naps. Our evenings have been better. seamus has been waking up like every 2-2.5 hours, whereas before it was every hour..I am nursing him back to sleep right now..We have had houseguests for a week now, with more to come, then a trip back east..We will probably do more sleep training come mid August, after we return home..As far as his GI stuff goes, he appears to be allright after the forbidden icecream cone lick and soy covered ear of corn suck..He has been super clingy but all together pretty happy about things. He is still on the PPI...There was no significant difference with the PPI (that we know of)I would like to think that the sleep training we did improved his sleep a bit..We waited about 3.5 weeks into the new meds to try sleep training..It might have been the PPI but I doubt it..Now Im thinking we should switch him back to Zantac but because it can take awhile for the body to adjust to new meds maybe we will do it after vacation...Ahh the joys of procrastination..Seamus is really happy right now which has been nice..My hubbie has been battling depression for several months now, which has been really tough on our friendship/relationship..Having houseguests has cleared the air quite a bit..Next weekend we were supposed to go to a 3 day wedding event 5 hours away but I think that I am going to let dh just go there with his buddies so we can have some space apart..So that is where we are at right now..Thanks for asking..I have ebeen pretty busy w guests(including surprise visit from the grandma)..I love you gals and I'm sending positive thoughts your way!

Good to hear from you. Is you husband seeking treatment for his depresson? Sorry if it is none of my business. Having him talk it out might make things a little better. If his mood improves then maybe that will help the whole family. ((((HUGS))))
Check with your
doctor first!
