It is October

It has reached my time of the year. My love for anything Halloween and crazy and well...it's my birthday month as well and our Halloween 3 year wedding anniversary.

Now comes the question after trick or treating with Madison what the hell will be do for it? My parents are going to take Madison Wednesday and Thursday so...what now? We would LOVE to stay in a hotel for two nights maybe in Boston or NYC but something decently priced with awesome things to do. I was hoping of finding something awesome on Groupon. If any of you come across something cool in those areas would you let me know? My birthday is the 26th so we are thinking of just celebrating that with our anniversary on the 31st.

Pear Juice

So I got a call from her Pedi on Wednesday and told me he got in touch with the gastrointestinal doctor. Before actually having to go in there they came up with a list of things they wanted to try first before having her go in.

The first on that list was taking her off lactulose (sp?) and all the prune juice and put her on pear juice mixed with Miralax. It supposedly doesn't cause as much gas as the others so it's a better option.

 Then I thought to myself (not thinking to ask her pedi while on the phone) where the hell do I find pear juice? I've never heard of it and was hoping I'd find it easily...which I did. It was in the baby isle...who would've thought? I couldn't find any type of pear juice in the general juice isle...do adults not drink pear juice?

Today is Day 3 of pear juice and miralax and I have to say I saw some difference in her today. She was whinny today BUT she wasn't screaming her head off nearly as much as it's been. So I'm hoping this will be something that will help her stay regular and as pain free as possible.

So far I recommend pear juice & miralax for your babies constipation needs!

And it's back

Something is up with Madison's insides. A baby shouldn't scream, cry and tighten up her legs in an attempt to prevent herself from passing gas or pooping. It isn't normal and she never did that EVER not even when she came home and was constipated but actually starting going on her own its never happened. She now only goes a smidge but we change smidge diapers 10+ times a day and we have to hear the screaming and crying and there is nothing we can do to help. So we will be seeing a gastrointestinal doctor again hopefully soon. I just hope it's nothing major.
