Bad Friday

Well, this past friday Jacob was watching Cooper so that my mom could clean my sisters house before they came home from vacation. Normally Cooper will wake up at 6:30 eat, watch Franklin, and fall back asleep. He will wake up from his nap and be ready to eat again at 10. Well, on this particular day when he woke up from his nap and ate....he was mad. Jacob said that he cried from 10 to about 12:15. Usually Cooper is easy to console but not this time. He would not Stop crying!!!! I was at work and I felt so bad for Jacob because when a baby has been crying for awhile you start to get stressed!!

I called the Dr. because I was thinking that it was an ear infection or he was teething (because he drolls ALOT) and we wanted to get in to see her before the weekend. Jacob had a client to meet with so I took off work early and took Cooper to the dr. When I got Cooper, you could tell that he was hurting. He had this sad look on his face and looked so tired. We go into see the Dr. and she said his ears look great, breathing is good, he has a little bit of a temp(from crying) and looks like he is eatting well (weighed in at 16 lbs and 1 oz). Come to find out our poor baby has reflux and it was burning his poor little throat!! I felt like such a bad mom. Needless to say he is taking much much better naps these days and seems to be a much happier baby! Still can't believe he weighs 16 pounds...geez!

  1. Aww poor boy! I hate not knowing what is causing their tears. If only they could talk! I'm glad that you got it figured out and I hope that he's feeling better!
