She was miserable yesterday. Her daycare mom said anytime she'd touch her legs she'd cry and didn't want to eat a lot and wanted to be held all the time. Poor little girl. Her legs were really red and hard. So when I got home I nursed her and she fell asleep but the minute I tried laying her down she'd wake up. I gave her Tylenol and that seemed to help her sleep better. I gave her a warm bath last night and this morning she seemed a lot happier but I kept giving her tylenol every 4 hours but the hard lumps are almost gone. God that's gotta hurt.

I did get that EMLA cream to put on her legs an hour before we go...it's suppose to numb her legs....hope it works! I'll BET you were SHOCKED with her weight....LOL.... now you got me wondering and I have NO clue what Trinity weighs.....ugghh...I think I'm going to give her Tylenol be fore we go to and every 4hrs. after....our poor babies : (

how many shots did she get??? is it 4 this time???

 

Heidi - February 16

She got three actual injections but there's five vaccines in them. She got two in one leg and one in the other. God I felt horrible for her. She just screamed. Poor Trinity. Definately give her the tylenol first. I was going to but we had three guests coming and going as I was trying to get her ready to go to the clinic and totally forgot.

Hi Heidi...we went for shots today : ( They gave her 2 in each leg!! she cried but only for a minute...maybe the EMLA cream helped a little bit, but not much I don't think. I did remember to giver her Tylenol before we left too so that helped....but get this...she weighs 15lbs. 3oz.!! she's in the 75%percentile for her weight and 95th%percentile for her height (26" ) : ) so...she's healthy chunkeroo. She did tummy-time well for the doctor too (thank goodness) and the doctor did give the ok for solids...which is good bc I started her on them last week..LOL...or was it a couple weeks ago...no it was last tuesday the 7th right? we started them on the same day I think : ) (how funny)...well just thought I'd fill you in. How's Emma today???

Hey Barb! Emma was great this weekend. She was a happy little camper. I'm glad your doc gave you the go ahead on solids. My midwife told me to hold off!!!!! I don't know why. She said that their stomach isn't 100% ready to digest stuff but she said I could still try the rice cereal but nothing else. I only give it to her once in a while and she's sooooo into watching us eat. She'll be in her exersaucer and I'll be sitting in the chair eating and watching her play and she'll just stop and stare. Between her and the dog it's hilarious but then I feel guilty. She's at the point where she's swiping everything she can. She tries to grab my water or whatever I'm drinking and everything goes in her mouth these days. This morning she was in her exersaucer while I was getting ready for work and she grabbed the tall giraffe and was bending him down to get his head in her mouth. It was so cute! Then she got mad and started screaming! Gees! If I'm holding her she'll grab my hand and stuff it in her mouth. Ha! I'm glad Trinity's shots when good. Did she have any fussiness over the weekend? I'm on that other forum too but I haven't figured out how to get our pictures on there and so on and I see they took the b___stfeeding forum out!

I'd LOVE to see you on the other forum!!!!!! I can see a picture of you and Emma : )....did they take the b___stfeeding forum away from here? hmm... wonder why??? there's one in the other forum. If you need help, I'd be glad to help explain things...I'm NO expert, but at least I know how to get pictures up and stuff : ) Trinity did just fine all weekend...I just kept giving her Tylenol every 4hrs. on Friday and she was fine. Sorry to hear that your holding off on solids : ( Trinity would have a fit now! She does the same thing Emma does...she totally STARES at me when we eat and I feel so bad. Actually, there tummy is ready for solids, it's just the future allergic reactions they may get to foods that's why some doc/'s want you to hold off. I say...listen to your gut. just keep giving her cereal if she likes that : ) let me know if you need help on the other site!!!
