Oh, I’m Disturbing Your Sleep, Am I?

Because of Kam’s reflux and poor weight gain, Kayvan and I are feeding him every 2 hours during the day and every 3 at night.

The Zantac for sure made him less reluctant to eat but that curbed off in the evening and we were at 30 ml per meal again. We need at least 50 ml. Around 8 pm we were back to a baby who was screaming with a bottle in his mouth but had just had Zantac 30 minutes before. So we were burping him every 10 ml. I told Kayvan we needed to get some Mycolin gas drops. He ran to the store and after the next meal we dropped Mycolin in Kam’s little mouth and wham. Different baby. I went to bed to prepare for the sleepless night ahead and left Kayvan in charge of the feeds until midnight.

Well, I woke up in a panic at 2:30 am and made sure the baby was still breathing! He was SOUND asleep. Since the last meal was at midnight, I let Kam sleep until 3 when I woke him to change his poopy diaper and feed him. He could have done without that and slept but I just couldn’t let skinny boy do it. Kayvan handled the 6 am feed, which again we had to wake Kam for. At 8:30 I woke Kamran because we had to get back to a 2 hour schedule for the day and get him his Zantac. Well, I unwrapped him, changed his diaper, talked to him, rubbed him and he just squealed at me and stretched away. The boy has certainly been missing his sleep by staying up at night screaming. He made it very evident that I was disturbing him. Completely and totally. Squeaking and stretching (and pooping) during his entire meal. So glad we all got some sleep in this house last night.

Oh, and Sookie was sleeping so hard she almost fell off the bed. Silly little clown. I didn’t get a picture if that but at one point in the night I caught her sleeping like this with her head off the bed:


Of course, her eyes were closed until I pulled the camera out.
