I'm glad to hear that he is good, but have you spoken with his pediatrician about these changes? Also, has he ever had an allergic reactions to anything (especially eggs, gelatin, the antibiotic neomycin)?
It is always good to have the doctor/nurses record this information in his records for future knowledge (in case there is an allergy). You also shouldn't have to stay worried about your LO, when your medical professional may have some ideas and insight to help you both feel better and find relief.
Please call them and let us know how you guys are doing.
Every parent has a strong opinion when it comes to spanking their own child. Is this a form of discipline that you can't wrap your head around or something that your family feels really works for you all?
I meant to reply to your post the other day and love it! I'm starting to get into the holiday spirit, so YAY! BTW, others wanting the Santa pic should at least contribute in my opinion.
I'm also a fan of the crying Santa pics, especially since my DD has grown out of it.
Our other holiday traditions: * Festival of Lights - county park full of lights, a carousel, Santa, a train, hot chocolate, bonfires with smores and more. LOVE IT! * Decorating the Gingerbread House * Visiting Santa and getting the pic * Tons of Crafts * Sprinkling reindeer food in the yard on Christmas Eve. (Oatmeal mixed with sparkles)
I think that all of us, as parents would feel worried just as you do, though according to the WebMD Pop-Up , "Breath-holding spells are usually not serious and do not cause permanent damage or affect a child's future health."
Just wanted to reach out and give a ((hug)) to you, Vicky!
I'm so excited to hear about your adoption around Christmas, though I know that you must be having a rough time missing Sam.
I hope that you still enjoy the holiday and focus on the future as a happy family! You really are a wonderful woman and mother to help so many in need.
Take care of yourself and check into what these ladies have found on maternity leave! How wonderful you gals are to find this!! I'm sure that your LO would greatly appreciate that one-on-one time more than anything in the world! AmeliaView Thread
