Kel what a bugger but at least you know. Funny how once you've had one baby with reflux you just know when the next one has it. Hopefully the medication works and he starts feeling better and more settled.
Lucy's first day of grade 1 behind us, and she loved it. Can hardly believe I have a child in grade 1, one in preschool and one will will be 1 very soon. Where has the time gone? Marc is standing on his own now, desperate to walk. He and Scarlett are locked in a constant pitch battle over everything during the day, then Lucy comes home and it's on for young and old. Chaos but fun, although some days I could lock them in a room and leave them to it.
Nessie they've been fine since we got back. Scarlett and Marc are tired, but not waking early which is what I was dreading, as they got onto Brisbane hours by the time we had left.
Alittle I have everything crossed for you for this Friday.

JF - have to laugh re Harry biting - my friend had a really bad biter and SHE was the one who was always gettinginto trouble from childcare about it - WTF - aren't they meant to supervise them!!!??? Her 'discipline' was pretty bad because we'd honestly find it really funny when he'd bite various bits of anatomy therefore positively reinforcing!! And even he grew out of it
Re your breathing - you'll drop soon - I'm alot more comfortable now that I've dropped - and uncomfortable in other ways instead I guess but happy to breathe and not have chronic reflux!
Kismet - we've tried all sorts of swimming paraphernalia and the only thing he'll tolerate is the bubble (cause he forgets and it's behind him I guess). Re eating - snacks are ok as it's catered exactly to what he wants, but it's meals he just doesn't do... he would eat baked beans every day of his life though if we let him - maybe that's on the menu tonight - can't be bothered with the screaming
BK - you're a super mom too - well done with 1kg in 2 wks!!!! Has H started on anything for the reflux?? How do you tell if it's just excess coming up and he just loves his food compared with proper reflux?? Forgive my ignorance??
Sonja - I also tried to force the issue with swimming but it didn't work either... but I agree in this country you MUST learn to swim sometime - esp when you have a backyard pool!
And yes, N was fine with daycare, no tears at all. He won't play with the other kids though - hopefully a work in progress??????? Scarlett sounds hilarous - yes it was fun but no more thanks Hope she settles ok
Lochnessie - any AF yet? Blood tests yet??? Sounds weird if you're never late before, hmmmm.....
Alittle - lots of stuff on the internet/facebook re recipes for allergies, I'm sure you'll find something. Glad it's helping though! We're also trying gluten free in addition to our already dairy/soy free as it's thought to help autism????? Can't say I'm very strict though - it's just too hard. Would love to share any fav. recipes you've got though
Good luck tomorrow for the EPU - hopefully the last you'll ever do
AFM - Nathan has raging UTI - anyone else had this???? He's been beautifully toilet trained for the past month but on Sun started having accidents. Mon/Tues he was in day care and was still having accidents - was told that it's normal to regress from time to time so I didn't worry but by yesterday he couldn't pee at all - huge flood all over the doctor by lunchtime after 'trying' to go every 5 mins all morning with increasing distress! Now on antibiotics and alot better but still can't really leave the house - only peeing every 15mins today and really PUSHING fluids as able. Any further advice???????
As for bub - Tues appointment they said 3/5 engaged but now I swear fully engaged - cutting off blood to both legs intermittently and peeing all the time - what a pair we make at the moment

m4n: sorry no advice about UTI....sounds like u are doing all u can. wow not long now.....cant believe it! i was thinking at some point this should drop down, wish it would hurry up, i seriously don not know how ppl can have like 4 kids etc.....its so unfair on us chicks and our bodies!!! dont swaet the beans...they are nutritious and if DS likes them then why not....i hate slaving over fresh cooked food for hours only to have DS take 3 mouthfuls and then refuse anymore...at least i know all the beans will get eaten...

M4n. Ruby had a uti and we administered antibiotics for about a week that cleared it up. She was in nappies though so the frequency wasn't really a problem
Saw GP today who is a child specialist and Henry has started on losec tonight. Poor little mans voice is so husky and he's pulling off the boob in pain. Hopefully he will improve in a few days. App reflux can be hereditary which I didn't realise. Just glad we are onto it early this time as last time with Ruby I almost had a breakdown she was so in pain and wouldn't sleep
Hope everyone else is well.

Sonja that's great news that Lucy loved grade 1. What a relief. I can't imagine the day my babies go to school! My two will only be a school year apart which will be great I reckon
How's Scarlett coping with Marc these days?
02-02-2012 19:21 #1117
Kel glad you got the medication sorted. Hope you see a real turn around in H.
Scarlett and Marc get along really well now. He's very cheeky and always laughing so he knows how to make his sisters laugh. They're all great together. Even though they're close in age they'll still be pretty spaced out at school (I think). When Lucy's in year 4, Scarlett will be in grade 1 and Marc in 4 year old kinder. That'll be the first time they'll be at the same school. 3 more years to go!

BK - glad you've got on top of H's reflux, hope it helps him sleep longer for your sake, I remember how bad Ruby had it. I'm not certain but I think I heard that babies sometimes think they're hungry when they have reflux therefore want to feed more which can make the reflux worse? Evie had a bit of silent reflux but it was so hard to tell the difference sometimes if she was hungry or just in pain, sometimes I would notice her breath smelt a bit spewy but not always.
JFB - Had a giggle at H being on the naughty chair, shouldn't laugh though. Must admit one of the many reasons I have put off trying for kid 2 was freaking out whether I could handle 2 on my own, but has everyone has said I guess you work it out. I still wonder though, yesterday Evie head butted me in the chin when she was having a bit of a tanty and it made me bite my tounge & it bled and I smacked her for it (didn't even think twice) but afterwards I had a bit of a cry that I smacked her & made her cry. I thought frikken hell, what sort of mum am I ? My mum once said to me (as she had 2 boys 16mths apart) that she had to spend most of her time in bed feeding the 2nd one bcs he had the cord around his neck at birth and they almost lost him, his neck muscles were damaged and he couldn't swallow very well & spewed everything up & she had to feed him every 1/2 to 1 hrs until he could swallow properly, all she remembers is my eldest brother sitting at the end of the bed watching or playing with his toys, she was lucky he was a good boy. But she has always maintained I was the worst baby bcs I had colic and reflux for 6 months. I guess I'm saying we all survived ok.
Evie's been eating pretty well, sort of won't each much thru the day but I'm amazed how much she puts away at dinner. She also loves baked beans, I give them to her when I need to do something quick, generally for lunch if she is over sangas, if I give them to her for dinner it's not enough so I do some vegies or she loves them tipped over mashed potato. She likes tinned spaghetti too. I hesitate to give them too often bcs I heard a report that they are high in salt (even the salt reduced ones which I buy, I think it's more in relation to spaghetti though). Daycare sometimes give the kids baked beans so if I know she's had them there I won't give them to her for a few days at least bcs I don't know if they use the salt reduced ones. Sounds padantic doesn't it.
Alittle - hope all goes well with epu . Evie coughed alot thru the night but otherwise she's been ok today, just a hint of a cold. We had her appointment with her hip specialist today and all is good, we don't have to see him again.
M4N - I actually read something about UTI's in babies and kids in a magazine yesterday! You've pretty much done what you are suppose to do, anti-b's should hopefully kick in soon, poor little munchkin. It did mention to get them to drink as much water as possible to try and flush the infection out. My niece gets them alot due to her medical issues & having to use a catheter, she always looks for cloudy urine as an indication a UTI is on it's way, but drinking heaps of water is always the key to keeping them at bay.
Well it's been a rather long post, I think I'm done for now! Have you all had to drag out your winter woolies? can't believe how cold it is for what is suppose to be summer.
