Big Boy

little guy got his 3rd RSV shot on thursday and he did much better than he did at his last one. where was defiantly crying but he got over it a lot quicker and he didn't cry so hard that he popped blood vessels in his face. mom was happy about that. the exciting thing is that he weighs 11lbs. another exciting bit of news is that we fed him at 9:30 last night and he didn't wake up till 6:30 this morning. he slept the whole night and there was no medicine involved. yeah! for baby and for mommy and daddy too. :)

Thanks to all....

...for the poop advice. after a karo syrup, a warm bath, and a qtip to stimulate the butt to poop i called the doc and he said to give him an ounce of apple juice every 12hours. so on my lunch break yesterday i got some apple juice. my biggest thing was i didn't want him to have a lot of sugar. luckily there was no added sugar so i'm guessing it was just the sugars in the apples. anyways i gave it to him at 6:00 last night and he took it like a champ. i think he really liked it. he should mommy and daddy like apple juice. :) anyways, once i gave him his milk he pooped. i just thought that it would be one little turd but come to find out it was a pretty good bit. it made it up his back on his onsie and one his pants. i just wanted to thank everyone for their words of advice and encouragement. i know that i am not alone in things like this but sometime is sure feels like it until i hear from all of you guys. i'm happy to know that baby constipation is a normal thing. just learning. thank again.

Calling All Moms

so i want to explain what is going on with my boy and what you think about it.......

saywer went to the doc for his 4 month shots on friday and he weighs 10lbs 14oz. (YEAH FO THAT WE ARE SO EXCITED) he's getting so big and the nurse was surprised at how much he had grown lenght wise. she said that he grew 4 inches in 2 months. (I GUESS THAT'S GOOD) he still looks small to me, but i love it.

he slept through the night last nigh, for the first time. he went from 1030 to 630. we were thrilled. though it may have been from the shots and the tylenol. i guess we'll find out tonight.

my biggest concern now is that he hasn't pooped in a couple of days. we started him on one bottle of formula a day the day after thanksgiving and we did that for 3 days then we went to 2 bottles of formula a day for 3 days and then 3 bottles of formula a day and i did 3 bottles for one day and then yesterday he only got 2 bottles of formula and i noticed that he wasn't really pooping. today i only gave him one becuase it's been over 48 hours since he's pooped. he doesn't seem like he's uncomfortable or constipated and he's happy when he's awake too but i'm concerned. we are now going to do just breast milk until he poops again. and hoping that the breast milk helps him to get the poop out. what do you guys think about that? is that sometimes normal? HELP!!!
