Happy Halloween! I posted on FB that EG has started to refuse all bottles, other than first morning bottle and bedtime bottle. Well this morning she refused her morning bottle as well. Is my baby weaning herself off the bottle? She eats other foods and drinks juice/water out of her sippy cup just fine. She has always been very attached to her bottle so I am finding this such an odd, sudden change.
Since her solid food intake has increased so much, her gas has been off the charts. I am back to giving gas drops several times per day. Even my MIL, who has babysat so many kids, is surprised by the amount of gas she has. I am blaming it on all of the solid food, but I'm curious if anyone else has experienced this.
Morning, and happy Halloween! I am sleepy. I stayed up late watching the World Series, and then C was up at 4:30 to nurse. Poor guy is struggling so hard to nurse, he's so congested. Even after I do saline and the Nose Frida he's still a mess. I am not sure if I'm just not doing it right, or enough, or what. He seemed a little better this morning though, and actually slept pretty good last night, so hopefully we're through the worst of it, for him anyway. I am just waiting and expecting that I will have caught the cold....
thatgirlrachel, we haven't experienced any significant increase in gas I don't think, with an increase in solids (we bumped up his solids intake last week b/c his milk intake had dropped on days he's bottle fed, and oddly with the extra food he took in a lot more milk, too). I can't remember from the FB post but will she drink milk/formula out of a sippy cup like she does the juice/water?

geners, No she won't drink milk/formula out of the sippy either. She won't even put it to her mouth to try. I guess she sees that it's milk and not juice and immediately pushes the cup away.
The strange thing is that Saturday morning I gave her milk for the first time (1 oz of WCM and 3 oz of formula). She sucked it down just fine and never acted like she knew a difference or like she felt bad, but that was the last bottle she took until Saturday night. I even tried a straight formula bottle and sippy and still a no-go - wouldn't even put it to her lips. But I really don't think the bottle refusal and WCM are related, because I believe she would have acted differently if she didn't like the milk or if it made her feel bad.
thatgirlrachel, that's interesting. I guess I would just keep offering but she may be moving away from bottles... it sounds like at this age, it's not a huge deal. But I agree the suddenness of the change is odd.
I don't have a pic of Margs in her costume yet. Tonight! (I would have done some yesterday but it was 80 and humid and her costume is meant for cool weather).
Well I am officially diagnosing myself with bronchitis. I'm going to join Clara in nebulizer treatments. My inhaler prescription is expired and I don't have a primary care doc right now, blargy. Bronchitis 4 times in a year, a slight cold and it goes right to my chest. I should probably take myself to a pulmonologist. As long as I'm not coughing I feel ok. Clara had a coughing fit and puked strawberry milk all over the rug in her bedroom at bedtime. BURN IT DOWN
byjove I'm sure C would enjoy the company during her treatments. Can you attach two masks to your machine?? That would be adorable. Lol. But, really- sorry you're so sick! cnf2013 we're anti-Halloween at my office this year too. :(
byjove , YIKES! I didn't think about them getting up EARLIER! Can I just cry now?
Anyone have their crib mattressed propped to an incline for reflux? how does that work out with LOs that are pulling to standing? how about belly sleepers, is it helpful?
Crying right there with you.
We have M's crib slightly inclined (well, the mattress is- I layered some receiving blankets under it), I would say 10-20 degrees. It does seem to make a noticeable positive difference (we un-inclined it for a couple of weeks and her reflux definitely bothered her more). She can pull to stand at the inclined side, but the crib is low enough that we don't have to worry about her climbing out for now (she is not left alone while in the crib awake for very long). She mostly sleeps on her back or side in the crib. After her first or second wake up she spends the night in our bed, which is not inclined, but she spends more time on her belly or propped at angle in my arms.

Happy Halloween!! I don't have any good pictures yet but we're trick or treating this evening so I'll post some tonight. F's costume turned out really cute. I suspect R will not tolerate his for long. It doesn't help that it's 87 today! WTF? Apparently it's the warmest Halloween since 1950.

Mini vent - Well I am an anti holiday person at work so I am working from home to avoid the insanity. I tend to have a lot of conference calls and having them disturbed by people dribbling basketballs, yelling down the hallway, etc. because of the dumb costume contest, I just avoid it. I swear, I don't understand adults needing to act like children and if I want to relax it isn't while at work, I would just go home then. Same goes with bringing kids to work. I don't get that and since I know I would get no work down if I brought Emma, plus dealing with having to have her in a carseat for almost an hour drive each way, blah.
I am not a "put flowers on your desk and celebrate birthdays" kind of HR.
Emma has a full blown cold the last few days and can hardly breath out of her nose, poor thing. So nights are even more fun, yeah! lol Not sure if going to take her out at all today, may just stay home with her. We are supposed to walk around a little bit with a neighborhood friend but we may just pass on it.
