Wow...........I am amazed at how little time I have to do anything!!!I have been trying to type this for 20 mins and still can't (and Sam is asleep!) We are six weeks old tomorrow and oh.my.God.............I have never had such little sleep in my life. He is a total different baby than he was 3 weeks ago. It started w/ the pulling off the bottle, and screaming when I laid him down. Tried Zantac for a week--seemed to make it worse. After a week, put him on Nutramigen--we are going broke now ;), which Sam had to be on. I quit nursing after 4 weeks bc I was getting NOTHING and he wouldn't latch, and I thought I'll either loose my mind or quit nursing, so obvious choice. So here we are after a week of both Nutramigen and Zantac and we are still up all night screaming. Last ditch effort is we started Prevacid today!!! I am praying to God above that the $149 we just spent on that month prescription will WORK! I would pay any amount of money. Last night he cried off/on from 10 pm to 330 am, the night before it was until 5 am! I cannot put him down while awake, so I truly have my hands full. Sam is being a perfect perfect perfect angel. I could not complain about him AT ALL, so I do have a TON to be thankful for, I'm just a little stressed. I'm also in a statistics class that is blowing my mind right now (once a week, 1 mile from my house, so it's do-able).
I'll try to keep an update on the prevacid. My pedi said that if this didn't work, then pretty much nothing will, except time. Hope you all are great! I read every day on my phone, I just never have time to get on my laptop. I'm not going back to work until we get this figured out! I do still have tons of help, my mom comes every day for about 2 hours and she also comes and stays 2 days a week, the whole day. I just try to catch up on sleep and school work or just spend time w/ Sam.
I will get through this, right? I need somebody to remind me of there horror stories, to make mine not seem as bad. Is that horrible? I sometimes feel so alone, like I'm the only person every to have a baby like this, narcissistic:p huh????? lol I might post some pics soon if I can! I miss you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
