i have been incredibly slack with this blog and do endevour to keep updating weekly but bear with me for a little while...
what has bee going on?
Hugo was diagnosed with silent reflux, which is reflux where the spew stops in the throat. Joy.
we have been to doctors and have been trying everything from herbal remedies to mylanta and finally have had to put him on a medicine for reflux, which was our last resort.
Also he has been feeding every half hourly or so to combat the pain with a little bit of food rather than a full belly of pain so he was weaning me and it turns out it may be my brestmilk that is setting off the reflux even though i have been off all sorts of food and eating extremely blandly.
So we have taken him to a pediatric chiropractor who has worked wonders and just yesterday have mad the decision to pop him on the bottle to see how he goes with me continuing to express.
Also Lily has been to the chiropractor as well and she is in a right state poor poppet, all from her birth experience.
she has had one treatment and we have our fingers crossed that it will help with her sleeping pattern which has been non existant since she was born.
In fact Hugo sleeps more than Lily does! So we are well trained in sleep deprivation.
That said, since her first chiro visit she has slept through the night TWICE. that is awesome considering she has slept through the night 5 times since she was born. Apparantly she has extensive damage to her neck and scalp which hopefully can be fixed.
anyway that's what has been going on here and why i haven't had a chance to scratch myself let alone update the blog.
love us xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
