Yeah! Today is the first day in a week that I haven't had to clean up vomit or diarrhea. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that this continues. Izzy's appetite has also returned and she's almost eating the same amount during a meal. She's getting a bit more breast milk and weaning is still on hold to keep up her fluid intake but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you for all the well wishes mommies!
In other new, she has two lower molars coming in and all four canine teeth are visible from the front of the gum line but haven't erupted yet. As you can guess this has made her extra sensitive to just about everything. She's be extra clingy and I haven't been able to work on any of my "to do list". Unfortunately, no go on the Ergo carrier, it had to be mommy's arms only. Hubby came home to see my partial attempt at cleaning the kitchen. The good sport he is he rushed out to the drug store for some Oragel, just in case. I haven't tried any since her first tooth came in but rather opted for chilled teether and gum massagers to distract her from the pain. I am in the camp to only resort to medication as a last resort.
So mommies, how do you feel about medications? Tylenol before vaccines? Oragel for teething? Etc? What are your two cents? Join in on the conversation.
