You know what happens when you actually have an infant that sleeps? YOU sleep. Yes! Who knew?
Benjamite has suddenly developed a gas issue. I’m not sure why this surfaced in week FIVE, but it has. He’s a pretty easy-going baby, but he suddenly couldn’t stay asleep for more than 2 hours and wasn’t eating as well and was, uh, farting. A lot. And painfully, apparently.
We sucked it up for a night or two, but two nights ago we hit our threshold of tolerance and tiredness and called the pediatrician the next morning. And, of course, I just “officially” returned back to work and had three HUUUUGE meetings in a row the next day. On three hours sleep. And I might have forgotten to put on deodorant and had to buy some at the store on the way to the hospital.
Dr. CrustyHero (because this guy has a rough bedside manner, but he is so old school that his office actually calls YOU to check on the kids thankstoallthatisgoodandholy) told us to start making Benjamite a little formula / Myelcon cocktail each time. And it seems to be working…sort of.
All I know is we all slept last night. And I put my underwear on correctly this morning AND put on deodorant.
It is a good day. Hope yours is, too.
