I'll start this off by saying my first child was my daughter who slept through the night from birth on and was the absoloute picture of health from birth on and breastfed within 3 min of comming out and never had ANY issue from then on.
Now I had my son Oct.3rd and I got something COMPLETELY different
Theo born Oct.3rd weight 9.9 21.5 inches long 14.5 Inch head Emergency c-section 16 hrs after Gel induction because he got stuck , the epidurals (yes they tried 3 times) didn't work just like they didn't with my daughters labor either so they tried the spinal (tried that 3 times) that didn't work so I had to be put to sleep... He had a very small breathing problem when he came out and then he was fine (took me a while to come out of it) .... no jaundice, some breast feeding issues which they believe was the cause of his blood sugars dropping when he was 1&2 days old still having some problem with breastfeeding with all his other medical issues.
My son wheezes a lot so the doctor thought we should try some acid reflux meds first (because he was swallowing a lot) and see if that works if not then it will be a puffer for asthma (Which worries me because my husband has developed a real dependency to his puffer over the years, and i don't want to give my son steriods ) He has had some pretty bad gas problems since birth and we tried gripe water and it did not work so well so we went to Ovol which seems to be helping the buildup but he is still in pain so i am giving him tempra twice a day to help ease the pain without filling him with medication. He seems to be very uncomfortable and sad/tired a lot. He also snores (louder then my husband) and seems to grunt a lot in his sleep!
I guess my question is:
Does anyone have any ideas for gas (pain or buildup) and,
Has anyone had a problem with wheezing or grunting or snoring in a child under a month.
I will take any advice anyone can give me right about now this is all so shocking to me because of the previous experience I had with a newborn (I was AMAZINGLY blessed)!!!!!
Thanks to anyone who can help and I hope all your kidlets are doing great and growing bigger by the day!!!
