She just wanted to go over the "extra fluids" and dosing amounts for tylenol and advil with me, since she assumed that I'd be the one up with her all night when she won't sleep due to being sick. I have never had a ped. call me at work to talk about the baby--they always have just assumed dh can deal with it all.
At first I was impressed she'd call me. Then I wondered why she didn't think dh would remember to tell me, or that dh would deal with it. Then I thought that maybe I hang out at boards like this too much.
She knows I bf, so it makes since she'd want me to know that we need as much fluid as possible in the next 48 hours. But would the pediatrician ever call dad at work to make sure he knw the prognosis?
Of course, you may be thinking the real issue here is that why am I at work letting dh deal with a sick baby? I guess I'm just a bad mom.
