Did you know that a baby can have an ulcer? Mine happens to have one! Yesterday she had whole bunch of blood in her poop. (Warning: Graphic poop description coming up!) It was old, brown blood, not new red blood. Upper GI apparently.
So, I took the baby and the diaper into the pediatric urgent care to check them out. (Of course, my Dr. was out of town!) You could smell that nasty thing all over the office!!!
Alexa was so good. She just lay there, smiling and cooing while they gave her a full examination. She captures hearts, that for sure!!!
Anyway, that's what it turns out she has! An Ulcer! Now, she is on medication for it. It's the same stuff they put you on for reflux (which she also has!)
So after performing so well, we returned home for a few screaming fests and her (and my!!!) first terrible night of sleep she's been born! Have any of you ever given Zantac to your kids? Does it cause sleeping problems? PLEASE SAY NO!!!
