I just found this board.
My little girl is Leia, she was born on July 5 2008 weighing 7lbs and 5oz. I was induced at 8am and had her by 3.21pm.... a quick but painful labour.
Whilst in hospital she had a bit of a choking episode, however they dismissed this as mucus and sent us home 2 days later. Within a few hours of being home, she started choking and we had to dash back to A&E. I can't remember exactly how many times it happened or what days it happened but within a week we were in and out of the hospital constantly. Eventually we were admitted the weekend after her birth. So many tests were done on her, it was so upsetting and scary to see her in the state she was.... I mean, she was literally not breathing and a couple of times I thought she was going to die.
The Drs conclusion was that she had acid reflux and these 'episodes' carried on until she was 3 months old and then stopped suddenly. What a relief.
Since then, she has been the greatest baby I could've asked for. She sleeps through the night, 7 until 7 and she does nothing but laugh and dance and sing. I love her so so incredibly much
I couldn't believe how quickly her 1st birthday came round. We celebrated with a bouncy castle and a bbq at my Mums, it was fab.
Where we're at now. Well, she is now walking, she started this the week of Aug 10th when I was off work on holiday. I was thrilled that I didn't miss her first steps! She literally runs around in cirlces now and she loves to carry her toys around with her, but of course gets very stressed out when they're too heavy and she topples over haha.
She's eating pretty much everything that we do, although I cannot drop her formula yet. She just will not take to normal milk. She takes little sips and pulls the funniest face, like she's tasting something so sour.
I am looking forward to her second Christmas as she'll be much more aware of what is going on, rather than last year when she was just plonked in her bumbo seat hehe.
That's all for now anyway.... Will update soon.
