Our sweet little Jay has become Mr. Fussy! It's like he is in major pain just randomly throughout the day. Pretty much the only thing that seems to settle him is being fed- which leads to a tired and worn out mommy! Not to mention that he went from sleeping 2 1/2-3 hour stretches at night to only sleeping about 1 1/2 hour stretches. Yikes!
So after a quick trip to the pediatrician to see about his umbilical cord (it fell off but looked really weird. Turns out he has a herniated belly button), I mention this crazy fussiness. She says it sounds like acid reflux and has me try Maalox with him for a few days. Holy moly- it's like we have a new child!!!!!
Praise GOD for Maalox! It gives him relief and has turned him into his usual sweet, happy self! I sure wish we knew about this during our photo shoot! We will go for a follow up and see what our next steps will be... From what I understand we will probably be given a prescription for Prevacid. I don't want to give this precious boy drugs, but I also can't stand to see him in pain! :(
After visiting the doc, Jay has gained more weight (yay!) and is up to 7 lbs 9 oz after 17 days! Way to go buddy!
And now I leave you with a few more pictures... I could just look at this sweet face all day- oh wait, I do! :)
His letters finally came in! Yay!!

I just love this- the purity and trust of this little boy.
