Dear Daycare

Once again, my annoyance with his daycare class leads me to this letter:

Dear Daycare,
What the hell are you feeding my child?
Love, Me

Over the Christmas vacay and every weekend, my child is “regular” (read: he is having a bowel movement everyday). About Tues/Wed, he is stopped up like a cork. So bad, that he is crying and shaking trying to get ANYTHING out. I do daily belly exercises and baby yoga to help him. I have inspected each daily report and I’ve come to the conclusion that it must be the rice cereal. We feed organic brown rice at home occasionally and oatmeal cereal doesn’t seem to cause the problem either. So Monday morning I’m headed there to let them know (with a doctor’s note in hand)! It makes me wonder tho, HOW MUCH cereal are they feeding him to cause a blockage like that?

My Sad Lil’ Man

So my son didn’t get over his little sickness like I thought he would.  It lasted all through Thanksgiving and proceeded to get worse on Monday.  Sunday evening, he was a terror overnight.  He didn’t want to nurse, he didn’t want to be comforted, didn’t want to eat, and definitely didn’t want to sleep.  Hubs and I went against our judgment (probably because we were deliriously tired) and sent him to daycare Monday.  When I picked him up, even his teacher mentioned that he wasn’t like himself that day.  4am this morning, I decided “he HAS to see the doctor”.  Home remedies weren’t getting him any better and I couldn’t stand to see him sick anymore.  Good thing I did! Dad called and got us an appointment within 30min (he said he had a fever).  When we got there, he actually DID have a slight fever.  Turns out he had an ear infection in BOTH ears and had slight congestion in his chest.  The doc, well NP, that saw him gave him a nebulizer treatment and augmentin.  They also gave him a suppository because he was FULL when the NP listened to his stomach (probably too much solids too fast).  Once again, I’m glad he isn’t unbearable to deal with when he’s sick.  After his dose of antibiotic, he actually played with me a bit.  I just hate to see him this way.  Rx: More mommy loving, nursing/fluids, REST.
