This Is Torture

8 p.m. - all boys in bed

9 p.m. - Amelia finally in bed. Resettle Sam and Alex.

9:30 p.m. - eat supper

10:30 p.m. - to bed after cleaning kitchen, making bottles, picking up toys, starting dishwasher and another load of laundry, and updating the blog.

11:30 p.m. - up for 10 minutes to resettle Isaac

12:30 a.m. - up for 2 minutes to resettle Sam

1:30 a.m. - Alex cries. Pick him up and walk. Sit down with him. Alex cries. Repeat for an entire hour.

3:30 a.m. - Isaac starts to wail. Grab him before he can wake Alex. Spend 30 minutes getting him resettled.

5:45 a.m. - up with Alex. He finally takes a decent bottle -- his first in about 3 days.

6 a.m. - everyone's up for the day.

I've got to go get some work done while boys are up so I can nap later today. Keep praying for Alex and for all of us.

When it doesn't work in adults, we make sure the omeprazole or other PPI is being given on an empty stomach, 1/2 hour before meals - just a suggestion which you may already be doing...

Hi there...

You don't know me, but I went to HS with Susie and got your blog from her. Having twins myself, I find 'fun' similarities!

Anyway, our son had the same issues as your little one, except he started at one month old. He had plyoric stenosis and needed surgery. They say it's common in first born males.

Probably a stab in the dark, but something to think about.

Good luck with everything. Ours are two now, and I honestly miss the 'baby' stuff! Crazy, I know.

We have had LOTS of problems with reflux/swallowing issues to the point that 2 of my boys ended up with g-tubes due to refusing to take bottles anymore...too painful. Anyway, though it is controversial, we have used Reglan, Prevacid and Erythromycin for the past few months and it has been a godsend. It was a VERY hard decision to make to put them on Reglan though we have had no side effects and the boys are happy and sleeping through the night! The projectile vomiting has stopped as well! E-mail or call me if you need to talk - I am on the triplet group list.
