I can not believe that Sweet Pea is sick again! It is almost never ending with her! Now she has just a regular "summer bug" as the pediatrician called it, but it's a doozy. Her throat is red and agitated so she isn't eating or drinking much, vomiting at times, loads of fun diarrhea that doesn't even stay in the diapers, won't sleep well, wants to be held almost nonstop and can't be at daycare or around other kiddos as she is still contagious. I had great plans of taking her today to our great community little kid pool that is heated so she actually enjoys it! Maybe trying to get a playdate together? Ha! Not going to happen now!
And I had hopes of her reaching 20 lbs in the next couple of weeks. She weighed in at 19lbs 12oz fully clothed on Friday and I'm sure that she is losing by the hour since she isn't eating or drinking.
The doctor also gave us Good Start Soy Plus (baby formula) to try instead of the Silk. The reason for the switch...how do I say this politely...my little girl has gas that will clear an auditorium of college frat boys. I mean, it's awful! It's hard to imagine that such a smell can come out of something so cute and small! But there is no mistaking it, she is doing it! The doctor thinks that it could be that her body isn't quite ready to handle the soy protein and I guess this formula has it already slightly broken down. The hope is that a few months of this and then she will be ready for the Silk again. We were enjoying the ease of not having to measure out formula and then add the Simply Thick, but I can't let my little princess keep tooting such foul toots!
And finally, I'll be lucky if I get more than 3 hours of straight sleep at this rate. I'm a very lucky wife because my hubby gets up with her most of the time at night, but I still hear him get up (funny that I often don't hear her crying but I hear him getting out of bed or opening the door to the bedroom to leave). I think tonight will be my night with Sweet Pea though so think positive sleeping thoughts for Sweet Pea and Mommy! :-)
