I'm tired, really tired, and want to take the time tonight away from the computer watching mind-numbing tv...
But the good news is that I think our new medicine cocktail is working.
Thank you all for your suggestions, I've tried doing more baby-wearing, but how in the world do you do that while trying to lean over a bathtub or read a toddler a book in your lap? Just doesn't seem to work for me. I wear him while I"m out of the house, walking, at the park, etc.
We got into the GI on Friday. This is our new current dose of reflux meds for Quinn:
2 7.5 mg doses of prevacid solutabs 2x a day. 2 1ml does of zantac 2x/day. We started on Friday night and yesterday evening and today I think he was actually better. Not as much crying...wow, I'm still waiting to see if this is really working.....
Last night the little man fell asleep at 8:15 and slept peacefully until 12:30!!!! Wowzee! that was the longest he's ever slept and he's never fallen asleep that easily. Tonight he fell asleep even earlier (before the bath time ritual with Kaitlyn, so I got to read my little girl 2 long books for a change without having to listen a mind-numbing screaming baby at the same time!)
Forgot to mention that I took Kaitlyn into GI also, as she's had the runniest poop for as long as I can remember. I used to just think it was because she was on a liquid diet. No longer. Poor thing. We give her tons of pro-biotics, but I sometimes think after a dose of probiotics she poops not long afterwards and it's always runny.
Wonder if that's why she's not gaining weight? She's been on so many doses of antibiotics it's frightening. Well, that's another issue to tackle another day. (and to help solve so maybe she can be diaper trained, but if I were her, I wouldn't want to poop in a potty if I had the runs 24/7.)
