Savvy Stories chapter 3, Post Sunday October 13, 2013

 

Some of the telltale signs of reflux are that the baby spits up a lot and arches her back really severely before doing so. And here I was all impressed with the way she could arch her back so much. Future gymnast, I was thinking. Oops. The remedy was simple; feed her slowly, and then hold her upright for 20 minutes afterwards.

Simple. And slow.

Feed her slowly… at 2am… and then hold her upright for 20 minutes…

So, your night now becomes a wake up cry for some late night feeding, right around the end of the late show; you go over and pick up the kid, change the perennially wet diaper, go downstairs to make a bottle – not too hot – SLOWLY feed it to her via a small nipple size – who knew those things even had sizes? – which makes her eat it even slower than she already does. That kid was one slow eater BEFORE the new slower nipple. Then, after she’s done, take a few burp breaks, and hold her upright for 20 minutes to let her get it down. Then you can…

Well, by then you can just stay awake and watch TV, because you’re so awake doing all that other stuff, you can’t fall back to sleep.

Come back tomorrow for the next installment of Savvy Stories chapter 3
