Since Addy has been having gas issues I called the doc and they said to give her a probiotic for a week to restore the good bacteria in her intestines. This is great and all, but how do you get a kid to take something that has to be mixed into food or drink when they will only nurse???? Apple Juice in a sippy cup! I got one of those Tommee Tippee ones that are supposed to be great for breastfeeding babies. I put a little apple juice and water in and mixed in the powder, and was a little excited to see what she would do. I should have known exactly what was going to happen though.
She seemed to understand that it was for drinking and put the spout to her lips and bit down. The instant something that was not breastmilk touched her tongue I got the dreaded yucky face. She did enjoy chewing on it though. I gave in and defrosted some of my frozen milk and mixed another packet in and she took that out of a dropper.
Man is this kid high maintenance….or is she low maintenance since all I have to do is nurse her? I guess I should look on the bright side right?
On another note Adelai can now sit up all by herself!!!!! She just did it out of nowhere yesterday, and today my husband found her sitting in her crib, wide awake, when she was supposed to be napping.
