I can’t believe Maggie is two weeks old already! She had her two week well baby appointment with the pediatrician this afternoon, and is back up to her birth weight, which means she has gained 13 oz since Friday! It seems like she’s hungry non-stop around the clock! She’s also an inch longer than she was at birth. They actually re-measured her just to make sure that it wasn’t a mistake.
We’ve been tearing our hair out dealing with her crankiness over the past few days . . .even with a full belly and a clean diaper she hasn’t wanted to sleep or even lay flat on her back. Instead, she’s been more interested in crying her head off and freaking her parents out. If we put her on her back and she’s able to roll herself over on her side, she’ll fall asleep for a little while (while I hover over her afraid that she’s going to keep rolling and end up on her belly). She only falls asleep sitting upright or at an angle, and immediately wigs out when you try to lay her down. Based on that, along with a few other things, the pediatrician thinks she may have acid reflux. So my little 2 week old baby is starting Zantac today and we should hopefully have a much happier baby by the end of the week.
As much as I don’t want her to grow up quickly, I wouldn’t mind it if she was able to talk and tell me what’s wrong when she doesn’t feel well. I’m not very good at this guessing game!
