Oh Karen, that sucks that he's got a stuffy soo soon.
Peter's all stuffy again today too. He was last week, then got better. I'm wondering if it's sinus', like I get. DH gets sinus' too, but he also had bronchitis last week...heck, he's like Vicki, you look at him the wrong way and he gets sick!!
Karen, I would say don't worry about holding him soo much right now, he's not even 2 wks. old, it's OK!! If he feels better that way, that's all that matters. Look at Peter and Kaylee, both were in bed with parents in the beginning, both are in their own beds now, and fine. (Actually, I'm not sure, is Kaylee in her own bed all the time yet??) If you'd rather put him down, try the bouncy seat, or carrier, so he's sitting up a bit, and less stuffy.
And no, you're not reading too many radicals! Some Peds. will recommmend rice cereal, and I guess even baby food, if the baby is small, or seems to not be satisfied with just breastmilk/formula. They also recomment adding rice cereal to the bottle sometimes for babies that have bad reflux.
Yeah, we got a lot of the garage cleaned out...still have a lot of bags to go through though. There are probably about 10 contractor size bags of "stuff", and I made it through about 4-5 of them yesterday. Had to make piles of "keep", "garage sale", and "garbage".
Vicki, I'm soo sorry you all are soo miserable!!
Man, I hope you're feeling better soon.
Karen, I sent you an email re: Alex's pics, but I'll comment here, so nobody thinks I ignored them!! Alex is soo cute...he's almost
as cute as Peter!!!
