1st night on weaning plan

The night was a bit rough but not as bad as I feared. She reluctantly took a bottle of water at 11ish and was upset and cried for a while then woke up again at 12:30. This time the soothing was more difficult and Mark had a crack at it too. Then she slept soundly till 3 and I slept next to her and soothed her by humming and holding close any time she stirred.
Today has been difficult. She is refusing the cup, glass and most food. She has had some water from the bottle and a little food, part of which she spit up. I called the new pediatrician and spoke to the nurse practitioner who consulted with the doc who said stay the course and come back Monday if she doesn't start eating again. He also said not to continue with the tummy meds we had been giving her. This is rough. They also said try to be really positive and give her lots of chances to try the foods she likes and the cup.

Good talking to you yesterday. I just read the blog. So glad you have a doc that is working with you on the eating habits of the sweet girl! If plan A doesn't work, he'll be able to help you with a plan B. We'll be praying.
Love, Nanna Pennie

Keep up the good work. I am sorry it is so rough. We will be there soon to offer a respite and moral support.
