My poor baby must have got traumatised from yesterday's ordeal...I can tell he's sick. Home doctor came last night and said that all things look alright but if we're worried go to hospital. He said that he would be monitored for 4 hours and then either kept in or sent home. We decided to try panadol first and see if he improved and after that he was able to sleep so we kept him at home I can still tell he's not feeling the best though so we're going to docs in the morning - DH and I are going to get our flu shots hopefully too.
We're also going to take him to chiropractor for the first time tomorrow which will hopefully help him with his colic...just found out last night that colic is actually stomach cramps / pains - for sure Orlando has it!!
At the moment I'm waiting for DH to come home with my brand new shiny car so excited first ever brand new car!!
Hope everyone's day and babies are going well x
I have no other tips yet, just been having hot showers and nursing often. I have antibiotcs but haven't seen an improvement yet, although only been on then for 8 hours! I'm exhausted, absolutely feel like a train wreck.
I can't really feel lumps as suck my boobs are just red and tender!
I'm not sure what to do with Ella tonight, she hasn't slept since 11am and is overtired. She falls asleep on the boob comfort sucking but when I put her down she wakes up and screams until I pick her up. She doesn't seem sick. Any ideas? She is 7 weeks old.
MrsOpt if you have Mastitis I don't think you can resolve it without antibiotics. I hope it's just a blockage and it clears. When I had it a few weeks ago it felt like a blockage before it became really painful, Ella couldn't remove it so I knew it was more than just a blockage.
Wish I could help KM but we are having the same problem in our house tonight! I think Zoe has had about 2 hours sleep since 9am, thrown up 3/5 bottles and will only calm down when being held. I've just tried to put her to bed but no idea how that will go.
Thats funny how they are both being like that at the moment.
Maybe they are having growth spurts? They are the same age. I did measure Ella today because she was looking really long all of a sudden and was only in 0000's for a week. She has grown 5cms in a few weeks. She looks really strange in 000's as she is really petite but long so they swim on her but fit her in length.
I'm also having that issue...thank god my sister is here as I am not well enough to even hold her, I never knew how painful it could be....how long till antibiotics work?
