So great to hear from you again....

We has so many problems, started about 3weeks ago....
At first we struggled with his tummy and cramps from birth, so much that my poor angel didn't sleep..... took him to a peadiatrician, she said nothing is wrong, and that I don't breastfeed correctly. Tried everything, eventually I stopped breastfeeding and started with NAN-Pelargon, and everything was much better.

Then he got nemonia, and after 3days in hospital she send us home. After a week he was worse..... I just couldn't take it anymore and went for a second opinion, Dr. Richard in Sandton..... he is great, so we finally discovered that he had a refluks problem........
And now, 2weeks later, we are doing great......... my boy is smilling the hole day, and we are also using S26-AR now. His stool is a bit hard but I suppose he has to get use to this new milk.

He is 6.5kg's and 3months now......
But after all this it's still great to be a mom..... when he smiles at me I just forget about all the sleepless nights and tears.....

I'm so glad everything is good with you and your girl......
Are you back at work?

Great to hear that he is so much better now. We are doing fine, our little one sleeps through the night most of the time and is just a bundle of joy. I'm not back at work and must say, I do miss the regular chats we had on the Gynae site! Wish we could chat more often - so nice to chat to someone experiencing the same things! Keep well and enjoy the little boy's smiles - they are so precious!
