Are Siblings Ever In Sync?

My husband and daughter just got back from Disneyworld late last night. He took J on vacation for a week while I got to spend some special one on one time with my new baby girl.

It was so great. Little J was sleeping good and she was happy as a clam. I really thought she had turned a corner and would maybe give me more than 3 hours of sleep at a time. Ha ha, I should know better!!

Little J is going through something I just can't figure out. I think it's her tummy. She's fussy and gassy and generally not happy. I called the doc and he said to try switching her formula. Right now she's on soy and he said try Gentlease, which is a reduced lactose formula. It's supposed to reduce fussiness and gas.

Well, it didn't work! She vomited, big time. Needless to say, I'm sticking with the soy. I just can't figure it out though. Right now she's sleeping next to me, but who knows what the night will bring.

On the other hand, my devil in disguise has been an angel all day. Why can't they ever be on the same page? Both children happy - is that too much to ask? Anyway, I'm off to bed. I only got 4 hours last night. I have a feeling tonight won't be much better.

Congratulations on the new baby!!

Sorry she's having a problem with her tummy. That's no fun at all.

Maybe it's reflux? I hope she feels better. Sorry the two kiddos can't be on the same page!

I think it is to give us a chance to deal with each one. I go a little wonky when both kids start to cry ... one at a time I can deal.

Awww poor little baby. I'll be praying for you to find the right formula and to get some sleep!

Sometimes they just get cranky. I wouldn't switch formula too often since it probably won't do any good and the new formula will just cost you more. Harry went through a period like that and eventually settled down. Is she pooping often enough? That was part of Harry's issue so I mixed in corn syrup in a few bottles to keep him regular.

I would make sure it wasn't reflux.

Congrats though!

First time at your blog and I'm not usually a commenter but...
My son has reflux and both a milk and soy intolerance. I had no idea almost 50% of babies who are intolerant to milk can be intolerant to soy. And the throwing up is common for an intolerance. Good luck figuring out the tummy problems - I know how hard it can be. But once it's all figured it out it gets much better :)

My daughter cried for 4 months. Unless she was sleeping. I was nursing and had to omit ALL caffeine and dairy so you can imagine how fun I was to be around.

I will send good vibes your way that she settles down soon. Mamma needs her zzzzz's!

As for the sibling thing? They will forever keep you on your toes, in a good way!
