Whining, crying, screaming & fit throwing...

...but enough about me. Holy moly. I damn near lost my mind the night before last. Kevin woke up around 11:30PM-which is usual-and proceeded to scream his bloody little head off until 2AM. I had tried feeding, changing, Tylenol...and then I gave him some, too. Nothing was working. I was like WTF???!!!! Roni came to spell me at that point and took him downstairs. PTL & Roni 'cause, holy shit! She said he stayed up almost the whole rest of the night whining but she noticed that he was pulling his legs up a lot and grimacing. He had also been cranky the day before, but not as bad. Coincidentally, or not, we had started him on a multivitamin with fluoride the day before. I think the multivitamin fucked with his belly disagreed with him. Guess what I didn't give him today? He's already on a formula with extra vitamins in it and the doctor in Guatemala had taken him off his multivite. I don't think he needs it, but I don't know if I can get fluoride gtts without the multivite part. I do know that there is no way in this great big beautiful world I can watch him suffer like that again...or me either, for that matter. He's also teething so I'm sure that's adding to the problem...

I'll leave you with pics that'll make you think I'm a liar with his happy face:

He is beautiful! I wouldn't be giving him that vitamin either!

Vitamins mess with my stomach, too. K. flipped out a bit when he first got home, too. I think with the transition and the different food, he wasn't feeling so hot. But Kevin is as cute as evah!

The ADA recently came out with a recommendation to not give flouride to babies as well! I wouldnt give it to him either!

Poor baby and Mommy!!!! The formula should have plenty of vitamins for him and I agree with the flouride...no supplements needed! I have never given them to any of my 4 kids! My peditrician said there is enough in their toothpaste and we have well water to boot. Use your mommy instincts.
