Yea that does seem like a lot of doctors appointments :(

Well if I had seen this post earlier I would have said that Ashley was feeling better, but she had a temperature when I picked her up from DCP today and basically slept from the time we got home until bed time. I hope it's just teething and not her ears still, but it's tough to know. And the antibiotics have caused a horrendous diaper rash so her bottom is rather sore. And she lost 5 oz last week so I was really hoping for a good gain this week - now who know what will happen. Grrrrrrr

Well, she tolerated the milk well today - but still only drank about 3 ounces. So she'll se the geneticist in May and the pediatrician in June and the Gastro in July. Seems like we are always running to the doctors doesn't it?

How's Ashley doing? Is she feeling any better?

I do still use the oatmeal and rice cereals, but I've always mixed them with water since I didn't have an abundance of breast milk to mix with it. My friend from church runs a daycare and I'll ask her if they can use the formula there. Or there is a lady at church that just had a baby, maybe she's using formula and can take it.

Yay for a great appt! I hope she likes the whole milk better than the formula.
Do you still give her oatmeal or cereal at all? You may be able to use some of the formula you have to mix with those just to use some of it up.
