We're mobile!

YIKES!!! Cate is doing a commando type crawl and scooch. She is getting into EVERYTHING!!!! She is up to 18lbs and 5 teeth now (three top, two bottom). Her congestion cleared up with the extended antibiotics, but has now come back. If it is still there in a couple of days, then I have to call Childrens and she goes back onto the antibiotics (and messy messy diapers!). Her new favorite words are uh oh and no. Important when she has older sisters! Sara is so rough with her so we have to watch it when she is around her. Kirsten carries her around the house constantly. We are up to the 50th percentile for weight (was off the chart when born) and now 50th percentile for height. Hooray. Reflux seems to be under control with prevacid. She still has blue spells, but we just don't let her get upset. :)

Get some acidophilus in pill form and empty the pill contents into her food when she's on the antibiotics. Our pedi suggested it with Avery and it worked wonders!! No more messy diapers.

Yay re: crawling! How exciting! =)

I will have to try the acidophilus too -- we were told to give him yogurt or the pediatric boost drinks, but I don't think that was until DS was over 2 years.

The hospital sent us home with instructions to add this to Ella's food for a week following a very rough bout of rotavirus earlier this year. Ours was scripted and came in tiny single serve packets.

They have the single serve "packets" in a fridge behind the counter of the pharmacy. It's expensive (like $1 or more a packet) but we didn't need a script. I also discovered a drinkable yogurt thing caled bio salud. It's only a little 2 oz thing but they are only like 88 cents for a pack of 5 & Ali really likes them. When she was on antibiotics for a month we used those & she never had diarrhea.

Go Cate Go! We need another couple of months before MB can start doing that... Babyproofing just doesn't take care of itself.
We used regular acidophilus capsules for MB's last round of "Pooprax". Just break them open and dump half into a bottle. Acidophilus needs to be refrigerated, but otherwise you can buy any kind. Our local healthfood store has some in liquid form that might be even easier.

Yeah for mobility! Sounds like she's doing well in spite of her medical challenges. Enjoy that munchkin.

They make some acidophilus that doesn't need to be refrigerated now, too. I bought some for myself while on antibiotics for a tooth.

I forgot about that stuff, THANKS. She was on that stuff the last time. It came in a capsule and I bought it at Target and dumped it into her bottles. She still had YUCKY diapers, but not as bad as it could have been bad.
