Not So Fun Snow Day

I'm so frustrated today. We got over 14 inches of snow (second most snow fall on record here ) and I was inside with a sweet baby screaming in pain. Olivia should have been outside having fun and making memories. At least there is always tomorrow. Ryan had to work (from home at least) and I couldn't put Abigail down. I literally stood for hours with her singing Rockin' Robin. For some reason that's the only song I found that soothed her. LOL! I don't know what's wrong. I had continued breastfeeding (and got my supply up) and barely supplemented with regular Similac because I had really thought my antibiotic was causing the problem. That was a mistake. We have her back on Alimentum only. She refuses the powdered kind, so we have to get the ready to feed kind. Maybe it is a dairy allergy or maybe it is reflux. You can hear something coming up right before she cries. And the more she cries, the worse it is. She's on Zantac, but it hasn't been weight adjusted and honestly, it did nothing for Olivia. She needed Prilosec or Prevacid. Abigail has a 99.5 temp and has barely slept all day, so maybe she has a touch of something (although they tell me a rectal temp isn't a fever until 100.4.) She is miserable! I feel so bad for her and so bad for Olivia as I know she hasn't had a fun day. Please pray that we figure out what is going on! I just need answers. :(

Looks like tomorrow is snow day #3, so maybe it will be better.

So sorry about Abigail. Poor thing. I am also jealous of the snow! We got maybe two inches last weekend and we probably won't get more snow for a couple of years. Mild NC winters! I hope you can figure out whats wrong with Abigail. It's hard when they can't tell you what hurts them.

Hi, I'm not new to your blog, but this is the first time I've commented.
Poor Abigail! Being sick is so miserable! I hope your whole family feels better soon!
Here in Virginia, we have a snow day too, but no actual snow! I am actually looking forward to some snow, as we haven't had more that an half inch all winter. I'd be glad to have some of yours!
