Mystery Solved

Poor Jack has thrush. We think that's the reason he's been such a Cranky Pants McGee. Our midwives recommended treating him with apple cider vinegar, acidophilus and gentian violet which seems to have done the trick but as you can see has left its mark. Jack is now sporting a purple mouth and bum and I have the purplest nips you have ever seen. We make quiet a pair.

It's amazing how much he's mellowed since we started the treatment. He had one of the best night sleeps ever and so far today hasn't had one of his complete meltdowns. So we're hopeful that we will start seeing the mellower side of Jack.

In other great news Jackson is now officially above his birth weight, weighing in at 9lbs 11oz!!

My goal this week is to get caught up on everyone's blogs and what's been going on with your lives. Can't wait to get reading!

Oh goodness, poor little one. At least everyone is feeling better. Congratulations, btw. Jack's soon-to-be teachers can't wait to meet him!

Aww, poor baby! I'm glad he's feeling better.

i am sorry that he has thrush (and you, too!), but so glad you got such smart advice! he'll probably love these photos of himself when he's a little older- so messy!

He looks great in purple, and I'm relieved to hear that he's doing so much better. Now his real personality can shine through and you'll be able to see how loved and secure I'm sure he feels with his mommas.

Even purple, he's still adorable.

Poor little thing! I'm so glad he's feeling better, though. :) This will make an interesting entry in his baby book! ;)

I've been checking your blog frequently the last few days, hoping to hear that he'd started settling down. Glad you figured out what was bothering the poor little guy. Hopefully he will now blossom into the wonderfully mellow baby he was meant to be!

Sarah said...

Aww, little dude! I hope you are all on the mend soon. He is just gorgeous--purple face and all!
