Since day 1, poor little Reese has been given the short end of the stick. She had to endure more stuff in the NICU, dealt with horrible reflux, awful congestion for MONTHS .. and so many other set backs. It’s always her suffering through something.
She, once again, has something going on with her at the moment ..
She has had diarrhea (excuse me .. but this IS a baby blog after all .. get over it people) for the past two days and now has one killer diaper rash because of it. Poor little thing is in so much pain that she has been crying on and off all day. It’s killing me.
I’m wondering if she may have a lactose intolerance issue since we have just started giving her more whole milk. Great. That’ll be fun to deal with.
So far we have taken her off of the milk completely and have been pumping her full of water, bananas, rice, toast, and applesauce. Of course, she has very little patience for eating .. but we are trying to get in her what we can.
I have a feeling that we’ll be getting up to change her about every hour or so to try and keep her dry.
It’s going to be a long night.
We need some healthy, happy baby butt prayers here.
