  • It's totally normal....Any mother would in the same place, you never want your little one to have to have anything like that done. I totally understand what you are going through, my son was born full term at 4 lb 15 oz, at 4 wks old he had surgery for pyloric stenosis, the muscle leading into his stomach closed up and he couldn't eat anything, they had to cut a 2 inch slit in his stomach to go in and cut open the muscle...I was a nervous wreck through it all, cried when they said surgery, cried when they prepped him, cried when they took him away for surgery, cried the first time i saw him out of surgery. It's a very stressful situation that takes a lot out of you, it's totally normal to cry! I'm sure everything will be fine, I'll be praying for you little one!!!

  • It's very normal...I think I had them twice (at 9 mo and 2 years) and my little brother had them at least 3 times. She'll be fine! :)
