Thankful Thursday -

We had a horrible night on Tuesday.  Cadence started crying and puking around 5-6pm and didn't stop until about 11pm, slept for a couple of hours, and then cried from 3-7am.  She was really miserable!  Fortunately, my dad was willing to help us out for part of the night and it was one of Derek's mornings off so we were able to take shifts. 

And we were lucky enough to have already had an appointment scheduled for the next morning with her doctor.  So Wednesday morning, we took her in and we talked about possible solutions.  We decided that she might just not be tolerating the milk-based formula very well so the doctor sent us home with a couple of soy-based formula samples and told us to come back on Friday.

The difference the last 24 hours has been like night and day!  She hardly spit up at all (she couldn't keep anything down all day Tuesday), and she slept so well last night.  Two 4 hour blocks!  We're all so happy! 

We've got so much to be grateful for!


  1. I can see why you are thankful. She couldn't handle her food. What a great, quick solution.

  2. Yay!! Let me know if you keep her on the soy, one of my sisters has some cans that she didn't use that is trying to get rid of. Who couldn't use some free formula?! Plus then I can see the little princess.

  3. I feel like I'm out of the loop with all your early motherhood experiences, I'll have to call and chat sometime. I'm glad you've figured out a better formula and hopefully you'll all get lots more rest.
