So I finally have time to join you girls here! I'm trying to catch up
kutekellie99-Sorry to hear about Crohns it must be so hard especially with your hubby not helping, you must be exhausted!. My DH has been a life saver, he's so good with the baby he stays with her whenever i want to go out and does everything from changing diapers to feeding to washing her. My baby girl is gassy too! she's gassy and she doesnt want to poop by herself. I have to help her by lifting her legs up and then she goes. I've given her gas medicine mylicon i believe its called and it helps but not 100%. My Ped says she will eventually learn to poop but I'm starting to worry.
Tara2009- my baby does the same thing she will sleep in my arms but as soon as i go put her down she grunts and cries, so i try to get her into a deeper sleep and then put her in her bassinet. Cymplicity is right colic is when you cant stop it.
cymplicity27- how is everything? thanks on the advice on the swaddling. I'll tell you a funny story i tried it i put her in it and it was like instant magic she fell asleep no grunting or anything i thought to myslef thank god for cymplicity!! 2 minutes later she started screaming so loud i had to rip it off LOL! so no swaddling for her!
sorry to hear about your little girl throwing up, I hope she'll get over it soon, it must be so hard.
aims- how are your babies doing? How is it being back at work? I'm going back soon and I'm so scared!! I dont know if i'll have enough power to last all day and night!
Anyone know a good solution to soften stool? Sorry TMI its not like they are hard but they'r not soft so we changed fromulas 3 times already and nothing seems to soften them. She goes and first one will be somewhat hard and then everything else is soft. We have to help her poop by lifting her legs up, I dont know what to do, I dont want to help her forever
Ped recommended to switch to the similac allimentum or whatever its called not only is it twice as expensive it doesnt seem to work she pooped once by herself and thats it we'r back where we started. He thinks she holds it in for too long thats why the first one gets hard and the rest is soft he also thinks thats why she grunts so much. We have to figure out i guess what will make her go...
Anyway, how are all of your babies sleeping? Today my girl was up for like 3 hrs!
She wasnt crying or anything just staring around, she smiles when i talk to her too! soo cute
She sleeps good at night but daytime she only sleeps maybe 2hrs straight and is up for 1-2 hrs.
ok time to go, take care ladies!
ojh one last thing, i tried the playtex bottles and they leak for me when i warm them up in the warmer! do you guys have the same issues? I tried feeding with them and they seem to be good with not giving air to the baby compared to browns but i cant seem to get them to work with my bottle warmer.
