Oh where to begin...
My daughter, Mirakel, is my first (and last) child. She was born at 30 weeks gestation and is now corrected to 2 1/2 weeks old. We came home from the hospitla 5 weeks ago today and things are going down hill instead of up.
She was showing slight signs of reflux in the holspital but it got much worse after coming home. She is now on zantac, compounded to not be mint, but that messed up her bowl movements (at least we think that's what did it). So the doc had us give her a tsp of mineral oil in a bottle and she finally pooped but she has had orange wattery stools ever since then (a week and a half). Then the doc said only give the zantac once a day to see if that helps. The only thing that occoplished was a misserable baby. Now we are back on the zantac twice a day but it dosn't seem to be working now! Also during all of that it was discoved that I had retained part of my placenta so I had to go in for a D&C. The anestisia used requiered me to pump and dump for 24 hours before breastfeeding Mirakel...luckly we had plenty of breast milk stored!
Ok so I also have Addison's Disease and my health has been steadly declining since Mirakel was born. I thought, once we discoved I had retainded placenta and had it removed, things would get better but they have continued to get worse. My doctor has increased my hydracortisone dose and I'm afraid it may be affecting Mirakel...so now what? I've always been a firm beiliver in breast is best but I'm not sure I can keep up. I also haven't been able to keep up on calories and am dropping wieght.
Any suggestion for any of my problems?
