I had originally planned a post about intuition about your baby’s sex during pregnancy, but given today’s events, I thought I’d write about my baby instead. My poor little man somehow caught a gastro bug and hasn’t had a very nice day today. Yesterday, he didn’t seem to have much of an appetite for solids, but I put it down to him not being entirely sure about this lumpy food business (he’s just moved onto the 8 months food, which has smooth lumpy bits in it, from the pureed 6 months food). But today, he was irritable and sleepier than usual.
We went for a nice walk to the shops, where I promptly forgot everything I was supposed to do and ended up doing things I hadn’t planned … *sigh* After we got home, he finally accepted some solids, and also had some snacks. But, after visiting his own personal milk bar and having a little snooze, he sat next to me with his little sippy cup and puked.
I gave him a bath and some water, but after a while he started crying from discomfort. When I tried giving him some Panadol for his fever, he puked again … all over his clothes and bed! I cleaned him up again, and took him to the after hours GP, who said he had gastro. By this time, J seemed to be feeling a bit btter, and was bouncing on the examination bed with the doctor holding him up in standing position.
Back at home, I gave him some Neurofen, as recommended by the doctor, and he puked again. All over himself and his daddy!
It’s been a long day. He was sleeping pretty soundly until his empty little tummy woke him up. Here’s hoping this midnight feed will keep him until the morning!
