In the last week, Jenna's officially been diagnosed as being colicky with reflux (which we're treating). The picture above gives you a small taste of what it's like when she goes off on a fit. It's difficult. We try to feed her, make sure she's been changed, and really attempt to try to decipher any sort of schedule so we just know when she's going to be tired and try to course her to sleep. We're getting better at soothing her, but the fits do persist... the worst is after she's had a couple of good days and then just melt down. But anyway, I know it will get better, as I'm taking EVERYONE's word for it.
Just a few days after being diagnosed with the colic and reflux, I was asking about her first diaper rash (which was super stubborn!) in one of my Mom's groups and we found out she has thrush, as do I. So, it's been an exciting week in our household. The treatment for thrush can be as easy to explain as she gets a medicine orally, and a cream for her diaper rash. I get a cream for my nipples. But the problem is that anything that touches the 3 'hot spots' must be either sterilized or put through a deep cleaning, exposed to sunlight or air dried out. I won't go into more details because it's exhausting to think about, let alone type out. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we can remedy this relatively quickly.
In any case, that's the un-fun update.
