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.... :(
Seamus' Mama
Hi! Is everything OK? Haven't heard from you in a while. Hope your vacation was terrific and that your little man is doing better. I just read in Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child a part that made me think of you (yes, I had to break it out again because Sebastian's sleep has been in the toilet since hs last reaction to Omnicef.). It says that it is perfectly fine to nurse your child to sleep. It said that that is completely natural (duh) and he totally supports it. He said the trick to stop the nightwaking related to it is to teach the child that nursing is fine when the baby is hungry, but not just when he/she wants to go back to sleep. Now I have absolutely no idea how one would do that, but I thought I'd share anyway so you don't feel like nursing to sleep is a bad thing. (I know you don't...but some of the books say it is the root of your problem, and I wanted to share that that is not necessarily the case. ) Hope you and Seamus are well and that your husband is doing a bit better now.
Check with your
doctor first!
