My sweet baby had her last meal last night around 1115.  She woke up this morning just before 7 to eat again.  Long sleep.  Good baby.

Mommy tried to feed her again at 1015ish.  Not interested but did choke down about 5 minutes worth.  So, I gave her a bath and got her dressed.  Tried again, nope, no thanks Mom.

Alright, got the doggies fed, Jersey's pill consumed, pottied.  Tried again.  No cigar.

Tried watching her Your Baby Can Read DVD.  A few minutes was ok.  Then we were back to fussing but not eating.  Other random things tried.  Diaper changing of course.  Playing with her favorite snail.  Pumping her legs.  Walking her around with the classical music blaring.  Alternating screaming and calmness continues.  Try feeding her again.  Angrier than ever.  Call sister for advice.  Keep doing what I'm doing pretty much.  Back in the Bjorn, jogging her around the house, then she's out like a light!  Well, that lasts for a little bit then she's back awake.  Try feeding again.  SCREAMING ensues.  Back in the Bjorn, bounce/jogging.  Starts to fall back asleep.  Mommy's awfully concerned though.  Baby's Pediatrician says I can bring her in in about an hour so we can make sure she's ok.

Mommies back to being sad.  Her sweet baby has only eaten 20 minutes worth of food in the last 15 1/2 hours!  What am I doing wrong?!  Is baby ok?!

No Daddy here.  No sister here.  No Grandma here.  No Bestie here.  Only one friend in this whole stinking town but I don't even know where she is.  Probably out of town.

What a sh*tastic Sunday!

I'm sorry your Sunday has been so troublesome. Does she have a little mouth sore? When Cal was little, she had a sore several times, (I think she got them from biting down when her teeth were coming in) making it difficult and painful for her to eat.

Hopefully, the doc has some answers. Hang in there, mamma.

Thanks Elizabeth. The Doctor said he thinks she's coming down with something - throat infection or some type of cold. As I type this she is finally eating again now . . . 17hrs since her last normal feeding. Poor baby

Sorry your day wasn't the best. I just had to comment that my mother-in-law bought the whole "Your Baby Can Read" system for Gabrielle when she was about 3 months old and I was a skeptic.....not that I know it works or anything, but Gabrille LOVES the little movies! That is the only TV she "watches" but she squeals and jumps and can't get enough of it. Hope yours is the same way :)

Thanks ladies! So far so good! Kaia's eating like normal today and I am so relieved!

oh man, do I know that feeling. We moved when The Boss was 10 weeks to a town where I knew NO ONE. It stunk. I hope your week is better, and that your little one is healing!

Thanks Minky! It is better already! What did you do when you first moved to meet people?
