Audrey Meadow 06/20/08. born 34/35 weeks. Still b/f and eats everything! ftt and chronic constipation.
day two- cont.
ugh up all night last night with little Miss A. I go to lay down at about midnight and put A in her Bassinet (i knew i should have taken her to bed with me..) and she wakes up just whining and is awake and spitting up until i don't know when. I finally got her to sleep in the bouncy seat (it's upright, should i worry!!) I was deliriously tired and did not wake up to the alarm to get Dh up to go to work... fortunately he made it to work only 13 mins late but not without heart attack.

i swear the girls have it worked out that every other night they will stay up late. two nights ago emily was up all night with diarehea and passed out on me at 3am.

i don't know why last night was so bad for Audrey, unless this is a glimpse of more to come. Thanks for all the support on the diet!
Melissa- i hope i will only have to do dairy! I did TED for 4 months with Emily (long boring story) but did not eliminate eggs, we were poor and i was loosing too much weight... in retrospect i feel i should have.... but HOPEFULLY!!!!!! i will be able to get away with just taking dairy out. next step soy....

Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
Kat, I have been following your posts but unable to respond (pc problems) Anyway, I am so sorry they are taking turns with keeping you awake. In the beginning with Nate, the same happened to me...I try NOT to remember those days. I am hoping that dairy is all you have to cut out too. I am crossing my fingers that tonight you ALL get the sleep you need. Take care girl :)

PICTURE: Aubrey in her cute cat outfit. If you look you can see how her right foot turns in. She walks that way as well. It is not as exaggerated in the morning's but gets worse in the evenings. This was after her nap.
Don't feel bad about the bouncey seat. In fact Aubrey slept in hers for quite a while. It was the only way she slept! Good luck w/ the diet-I need to go on it and loose a couple pounds... I hope you can get some rest today. Thinking of you!

Donnessa, mom to Halley born 3/10/07
Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
Kat, what a sucky week - I'm so sorry. I didn't get a chance to respond to your TED post - I really admire you for trying it again. I'm pretty sure that God created the bouncy seat for mothers of refluxers. It was our best friend for Halley's first 5 or 6 months - so don't feel bad about using it.

Coyle Eagan. One Year Old. Doing well on Cow's Milk flavored with juice :) Drinking two bottles of Go&Grow daily. Eating solids better but still have rough days. No More Silent Reflux-that I can hear anyway.. but puking again. Zantac 2ML 2X daily.
echoing the other moms about the bouncy seat. when coyle was not on me he was in the fisher price glider all the time. it was given to me by the neighbor just because they did not like it... what a miracle. don't feel bad at all. sorry about the rough week.
Check with your
doctor first!
