Then came the second week. Cole started getting very upset after feedings, especially in the evening, and started burping and refluxing. It hurts him so bad, the look on his face when that acid comes up, brings tears to my eyes every time. And the cry, he makes the worst bone chilling scream when it is happening. Sometimes he can be soothed after 20 minutes, sometimes its over an hour. I just feel so helpless, watching this tiny little person suffer. We have gone to the pediatrician and he has started him on Omeprazole and Culturelle. The only bad part is the medication takes up to a week to start working, so until then, with each feeding, we don't know if his reflux is going to flare up.
So, needless to say, I have been a little preoccupied. Not necessarily physically, because Ross is AWESOME at soothing him day or night when I break down because my heart is hurting for my little man. But more emotionally and mentally, I am constantly worried and reading way to much on the internet. Ross has banned me from Google.
So, I do have the first 2 week updates and his birth story coming, hopefully by this weekend. It's just a matter of transferring it from my journal to the computer. But here is a little Cole in the mean time. SERIOUSLY, IN LOVE WITH THIS LITTLE MAN.
