I know I haven't been blogging lately. It's definitely been time consuming to be Momma so, I am sure you all understand why I haven't posted.
Most recently, the little one was diagnosed with reflux. It explains the excessive spit up and the tummy problems in general. I tried everything suggested to help him but, in the end I had to put him on Zantac. I wasn't happy about it. I don't like the idea of putting a 7 week old newborn on medicine. However, seeing him in pain was heart breaking for me. He would scream and cry and I would just sit there and cry with him because I felt so helpless. The medicine seems to be working. He still spits up but, it isn't as much and the pain seems to have subsided. He still screams when I try to burp him...I guess he just is conditioned to the pain from it.
I guess the worry of being Momma has kept me busy. I understand why my mom was always worried about me when I was growing up. It just becomes part of who you are as a mother.
