Stella is hitting some sort of bump in her schedule these days. For a few days she was really wiggly when trying to eat and then in the middle of her naps she would wake up screaming. It wasn't a hungry or bored cry like usual but an all out scream that sent my mind and heart back two months when this scream was my constant companion through out the day. It is enough to bring tears to your eyes. We had already thought that maybe SJs meds were starting not to work and maybe need a switch and this painful cry was just enough to send us over the edge and call the doctor.
We switched her to Prevacid and hoped this would cure the issue. That was yesterday... and we haven't had a full nap since! She was fussier than usual and had a huge poop that afternoon, which we thought would make it better. She barely ate at all during the day and then woke up once during the night... which she never does! She woke up just as early as usual and barely ate again and then didn't go back to sleep for her first nap, which is usually her 2-3 hour nap. I finally went up to see what she was talking to and this is what I found.... (see video)
She still isn't eating or napping well but I guess we'll give it a few more days before we bug the doctor again.
If you've got the cure, we're all ears!
