Being 3 And Still Having Reflux

6 October, 2014
IMG_0474.JPG

It is 10:04 pm and as I lay here getting this out of my system, I know that in a few minutes my little boy will wake up crying and be clambering into our bed. As he does every single night. It is hard to know if this is habit or pain from his reflux. Mostly I feel it is habit. A habit formed when his reflux wasn’t controlled well by medication. But then again we have had 3 weeks…

The Mummy Bedtime

What is that song called by Bon Jovi, Live while I am alive, sleep when I am dead? Well that has been me with regards to sleeping the last 3 years. Once my bedtime was 10pm at the very latest. Mr MMM is like 9.30pm, wham bam thank you mam. The only time he stays up past this is if we are out or to watch a movie on a weekend. Notice when describing my bedtime, I said ONCE? Rewind…

Infant Reflux eBook – 100 Tips To Keep You Sane – For Parents and Carers

8 February, 2014

2 years ago, my Husband told me during a very dark difficult day that I could one day write a book on everything I have learnt about coping with infant reflux.  I think I laughed through tears.  It was his way of telling me that even though I thought I wasn’t coping and doing my best, he thought I was.   Until recently, this eBook was possibly just a pipe dream.  It took a conversation with a very motivating lady to…

So Lil D has Hand Foot and Mouth Disease aka Coxsackievirus Type A  (Now stop laughing and say it like this Cock-Sackie-Virus no Suckie just Sackie) Sounds ghastly doesn’t it? Mr MMM keeps saying …. Ewwwweee it seems so grubby. The poor little fellow is sporting some lovely pox like sores around his mouth too which is a constant reminder to wash hands and anything he has been playing with. Washing machine is groaning. Mummy is growling. Last night I…

It Has Been Awhile Since I Have Talked About The Oh My GORD

29 September, 2013
20130929-200013.jpg

Those of you that have followed this blog since it’s beginnings will know that it started because two out of my three children suffer from GORD.  As in gastro oesophageal reflux disease.  I was mental at the time of the MMM birth, with little to no sleep under my belt and every emotion under the sun from the frustration of not being able to fix things. The blog gave me something to focus on. Something I could achieve from my…

The Game Has Changed

21 July, 2013
game has changed

Have you noticed things have changed around here? We have. Since weaning, Lil D is eating better,sleeping better and playing better. It is like a breath of fresh air. He is still refluxing unfortunately. However, instead of wanting breast milk to soothe his pains he takes water. I am feeling refreshed from the 7 hours straight sleep I get almost every night. I was feeling very weak physically and mentally in the weeks leading up to weaning. My goodness I…

Thank You For Staying In Our Hotel – Please Do Not Return.

10 June, 2013

We checked out of our hotel in Brisbane this morning. We had outstayed our welcome clearly. There was no please stay with us again. Instead the receptionist’s already screwed up face just screwed up some more when I said I couldn’t find my credit card. (Lil D had removed everything from my wallet on Friday night after the LOLLY INCIDENT) I could tell she was in two minds whether to tell me just to take my screaming toddler and disappear…

Breakfast With The Boys

9 June, 2013
20130609-133635.jpg

Yesterday morning we ate breakfast at our hotel prior to heading off to Miss M in hospital. Remembering the spectacle that was dinner the evening before, it seemed easier to slip into the hotel lobby’s dining room to nourish ourselves and cheaper than other breakfast locations. Seems that everyone else in the hotel had the same idea. Including 4 priests clad in full priesty attire. Of course we sat next to them didn’t we? In hindsight we should of saved…

I have been a little quiet this week. It has been alarming hasn’t it ? Yes well, it has been worrying for me too. I am not sure if I have ever had such a wordless few days. I don’t think it is anything too serious though. I have just had a bit going around in my head with Fundoplication # 2 for Miss M impending later in the week. It is mostly, Mother’s Guilt shit. The very fact I…

RISA – The most amazing place for parents and families of reflux infants and kids

26 March, 2013
3 weeks

In my real job I work in Health. Often in the past, I would sit at my desk and hear the newborn cries from the nursery nearby. I would joke with a colleague that I was glad I wasn’t taking that one home. Enter : Karma. I did end up taking one of those screaming babies home with me, on a cold rainy May day almost 2 years ago. He wasn’t screaming when we left hospital though, in fact on…

A friend quoted another friend today … She said ‘boys live on air’. I agree. Well in my boys case anyway. In fact, if this boy could just exist on air, bop (his word for breastmilk),my hip or Daddy’s shoulder he would be the happiest darn 22 month old boy in town. Truth is, he can’t just live on air like he has done this last week and my hip and bops are feeling broken. He has lost about 1kg…

Dessert For Dinner .. Mr MMM strikes again.

Yesterday afternoon I had a very unsettled little man. I blame myself for it. I had decided to see if we could cease the morning dose of reflux medication. By lunch time he was grumpy and wanting to be carried all the time. By afternoon tea time he was burping and crying in pain. SO we won’t be doing that again anytime soon. By the time Mr MMM walked in the door I was feeling a little down. Dinner was…

I write this post as I lay down with Lil D to feed him off to sleep in our bed. He has never slept in his own room all night ever. I have a million things to get done as I do every night but settling my little boy peacefully down to sleep is our priority. When his Sisters are home it is our routine to put them to bed first. Lil D often jumps into bed with them while…

I achieved diddly sqwat and as I lay here on the bed feeding Lil D I am reminded that this reflux journey is far from over. Yesterday, we had a gastro paediatric review for both of our refluxers. It was decided we would continue on doing what we are doing with Lil D until he is 3. Initially, I was happy…

I wrote a list of resolutions for this year. Most where actually tasks to complete, like finishing painting the house. Not really a resolution huh? The usual weight loss, exercise, save money crap is a complete waste of time on me. I do what I can when I can. So heading on into a little deep moment here, I have decided I only need one resolution for 2013 and it is to be something that will make me stronger –…

But Mum… I Sleep

18 November, 2012

In the last two weeks we have had : A whole bottle of Tangerine nail polish painted all over his hands, feet, torso and my freakin lounge room rug. A standoff at sleeptime that resulted in him whilstfully throwing one leg over the side of the cot and climbing out. Then opening his door and stomping past myself and Mr MMM stating NO SLEEP. Biting… Yes biting. My ankle today whilst I was daydreaming of deserted lighthouses I could reside…

We were sent Ava last month to trial as a novelty to make dispensing medication easier and more fun for babies and young children. Lil D has reflux medication twice a day and I must admit most of the time it is a battle to get him to take it. Due to him requiring this medication since he was 3 weeks of age our little man really has an anxiety of anything going near his mouth. Ava the Elephant has…

Today has been rough. It is Father’s Day and it feels like Mr MMM has done more for us than we have him. See, Lil D has had a rough time the last week with gastro and a reflux flare. It seems like all I have done is breastfeed, change dirty nappies and carry him about consoling him. I crave for a couple of hours alone to clean my house. Funny huh? I am not a lover of house work…

Almost All Worn Out

21 June, 2012

To say we are all worn out is mildly an understatement. We have had almost a month now of broken sleep (1hr at a time max) with Lil D and his reflux. Perfect timing with me returning to work. I am on auto-pilot…teetering on crashing. So today when our Gastro-Paed said he needs a gastroscopy,we jumped at the chance to make the booking for tomorrow. We need to know what is causing all of this. In my heart I know…
