Today has been Kira’s first stomach bug! What a fun time. All attempts at eating today have been followed by Vesuvian eruptions; the first one was in the car, which was exciting. We had to pull over to literally pour out the car seat. She is currently on outfit #5 of the day.
When I called the nurse, she said to wait three hours from the last barf to give her anything, and then give sips of Pedialyte every 20 minutes for an hour. Kira has kept the Pedialyte down over the past hour and a half so now we’re starting half-ounces of milk. So far the first half-ounce is staying in her tummy….wish us luck!
So far, so good...she slept like a rock last night, at least. Now she gets 5 minutes of nursing every 30 minutes for 4 hours. If she keeps it all in, we can start feeding normally at 11am. No solids today or tomorrow. Oh, and she also as diarrhea, yay.
Poor bean!! The nurse said the bug is going around; maybe she caught it on the airplane on Wednesday? No idea!
I'm so sorry for poor little Kira! It is not fun to have a sick baby. They look at you with those "please help me" eyes....tears my heart apart! I hope she gets better soon!
Oh man, the worst part was on Friday evening when the nurse said I couldn't feed her anything for three more hours. She was SO hungry but I couldn't feed her...she would pull herself up into my lap, crying, and try to nurse on my shoulder while crying MA MA MA MA. It broke my heart.
Thankfully she seems almost as good as new today. She's not eating as much as usual but she seems happy and energetic and not explosive from either end. Unfortunately, now hubby has the bug...I hope he gets over it as quickly as Kira did!
I'm so sorry that Kira has been sick. Glad she seems to be better now. Jacob had it a few weeks ago and it was terrible. Our dr gave him some anti nausea medicine that seemed to help for him. Hope everybody else is feeling better also.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
