Houston, we have a problem.

Tuesday, March 31, 2009
I've really tried for some semblance of order in my life. But my daughter has to come first. She's had a really hard time--poor thing. She lost a bunch of weight and then went on a 16 hour hunger strike. The doctor said if she wasn't doing better by morning, we would need to hospitalize her.

Long story short, we found out she needed prevacid for acid reflux and nutramigen for an inability to digest proteins.

She's regaining a little weight, and she's stopped screaming for 2-3 hour blocks. Hopefully this will fix it and things can start settling down. If not, can anyone recommend a good psychiatric unit?


  1. Amber, my daughter had the exact same thing. I lost all my milk supply and just about killed myself and my child due to lack of sleep and post partem depression. It was the worst 3 months of my life.

    If you need any help or advice, please let me know. I've been there. :(

    Good luck, and you're in my prayers.

  1. Ugh. Good luck. I hope everything works out well for you.

    Oh, I know how hard that can be. My older son was kept in the hospital after he was born, but I had to leave. I wanted to breastfeed him, so every two hours my husband drove me back from the hospital to feed him. I was so exhausted and worried.

    My prayers are with you. Take care of yourself.

  1. Oh, Amber. I'm so sorry to hear she hasn't been doing well. Hopefully it's better now.
