Yes, I know it’s Thursday, not Tuesday, but I’m just SO grateful for this next little tidbit that I needed to post another Gratituesday edition this week.
Why am I so happy?Â Well, excuse me while I shout…
WE FIGURED OUT WHAT’S WRONG WITH MARTHA!! 🙂
Ok, that sounds bad – nothing is really WRONG with her, per se, but she has not been her delightful self for a couple of weeks.Â She hasn’t been sleeping well (understatement), and talk about CRANKY baby!Â Poor thing… we thought for awhile that it was all the commotion around her birthday, and the six extra people in our house for a week, and the Easter hooplah.Â Yeah, it may have been PARTLY that, but we have a new theory and so far it’s been proven correct.
So it turns out that she isn’t really tolerating milk all that well.
Duh mom – such a simple thing.Â When did we start giving her cow’s milk?Â Oh, about two weeks ago when this whole cranky baby thing started.Â So, on Tuesday night we gave her formula again for her night-time bottle, and she slept and slept and slept some more, and woke up HAPPY!Â
So we’ve gone back to formula for the time being, until we can visit with her doctor about the transition to “real” milk.Â It’s certainly worth the price of formula to get SLEEP AT NIGHT!Â (Oops, sorry for the shouting – I’m just REALLY thankful!)
Now… if we can just figure out what’s wrong with lil Allan…
