A happy day



Zac had a pretty good day today... we started a new meds routine and that might have something to do with it, but who knows. He was a bit more clingy than normal, but that's fine with me- as long as he's not screaming, I really don't mind holding him the entire day! Every nap was spent in the arms of mommy or Grandma... I actually love holding him during naptime- peaceful moments with him are often times few and far between so it's so nice to just see him lying there still and happy.

Anyways, new meds routine... we took him off the Z.antac and started P.revacid with the R.eglan. I also got some G.ripe W.ater to use instead of (or in conjunction with) M.ylicon drops. I'm happy with the new meds, but the Gr.ipe W.ater is a pain in the booty- most meds are such small doses, but this g.ripe w.ater is a full teaspoon!- and he is not a fan of that. The P.revacid seems to help, but it's only been a day, so it could all just be in my head.

He's smiling so much more lately and it's SO nice... when we're having a hard day the smiles make things a lot better...

I'm glad that he seems to be doing better and hope that this is the fix that you guys need!

This too shall pass! We went through all that with my twin girl. All of a sudden one day we realized that she's smiling more than crying and not spitting up anymore! And she's only 8 months old now, so all that grumpiness didn't honestly last that long. Of course, everyday probably feels like an eternity to you!

I agree, Gripe water's a PAIN!

Glad he's getting relief! We dealt w/it w/Aiden. PITA!
