Pepcid Spells Relief???

Well we got the prescription :)  Lil' C has been on the medication since Friday afternoon and (knock on wood) has been doing better!!  She is sleeping better and seems much more happy and alert.  She still shows signs of pain at some feedings (she cried for over an hour last night during her feeding) but the doctor said it would take up to a week for the stomach lining and esophagus to repair themselves, so hopefully that too will pass. 

This medication has not only brought some relief to C but Z is much less stressed out than he was before.  He has taken a liking to this new baby that doesn't cry as much.  He will now be in the same room with us (unless she is crying), has given her kisses, asks to hold her, tries to play with her and talks about her non-stop.  It has been really nice.

S is away for the week on business and my family and best friend are taking shifts to help out during the day and sleep over at night.  C has been going through her 3 week growth spurt and all she and I do is nurse, so the help is much needed.  S felt so badly leaving us yesterday but he had to go and I understand that.  We are in good hands and despite the long cry last night, she had a very good night....I actually got more than an hour of sleep at one time :)  Let's hope for another good night tonight.

That is great news! I am so happy for you. I know that baby. I had that baby. He projectile vomited all the time on top of everything else. It was horrible. He had the severe reflux plus a milk and soy protein allergy. It was awful but soooo good once we got his belly fixed. He became a much happier little boy and is still filled with a ton of enthusiasm to this day! :)

now.....get some sleep.

So glad that LiL C is doing so much better! It makes you breath just a little bit easier. I'm glad you have help while S is out of town, without my MIL I don't think I would have made it through the first month with Jillian. Get some rest!
