Mildred turned 1 month old on Monday. It seems like we were just in the hospital with her a week ago, but that might just be because I’ve probably only gotten a week’s worth of sleep in the last month.
I should probably just be glad that I’m not Milli. She’s been having tummy troubles again – lots of burping and gas. We’ve been using gas drops and gripe water with little effect, so I started her on a probiotic drop yesterday. Unfortunately, I have a feeling that she’s developing issues related to the soy milk. Since she is older now, we may try to go back to a milk based formula, but if that doesn’t work we will probably have to get a little creative and try something like goat milk.
I’m hoping that we can get Mildred feeling better soon because all her tummy troubles are taking away from her being the sweet, happy baby she normally is.
This week was also Milli’s hearing test. She failed the screening in her right ear at the hospital, so we had to schedule more involved testing. There were 3 different tests. One checked for fluid on the ear, one was some sort of echo test to see how the ear drums reflected sound, and the last test involved electrodes being attached to her head to check how her brain responded to sounds. I am happy to report that all 3 of the tests showed her hearing was in the “normal” range.
So that’s the update for life around here. What is going on in your life?
