She said that one of the things she tried was giving him benedryl...that was PRESCRIBED by her DOCTOR!!! What the heck??? You aren't even supposed to give that to babies. I told her to find a new Dr!!!

My doctor is awesome. He tries to always prescribe over the counter all natural remedies.

Like when allergy season hit he wrote me a note page full of nonmedicated syrups to try. The beat was lil remedies honey elixar. Nothing but honey water. My kids are 6&3 and they love the taste and it coats the throat nicely so no sore throat and no side effects.

When I was 16 i ended up keeping my moms friends baby. I would keep her 4-5 days and the grandmother would take her 2-3 days. I had Ger mostly on weekends and a day or two during the week. I can't tell you how many times I went to the "mothers" house and threw away bottles of.medicine she kept that poor baby doped up on.

I almost failed 10th grade trying to mother that baby.

Wow. Thats really sad. While it was rough until my sons STTN I would have never thought to give them something to make them sleep. I've always felt there is a reason that children wake during the night. I may never know the exact reasons but I know there has to be one.
