Last night, I rocked D while he slept fitfully in 20 minute increments in between boits of screaming not crying and temperature spikes. This morning our pediatrician handed down the verdict, our first double ear infection.
While we were there, I had his blood checked, too. He’s just been lethargic and off for a bit, and yep his iron count is a on the low end of normal. We’re going to try a new vitamin and have a follow up.
We’ve now entered “mean” stage. My sweet baby is now a toddler who likes to slap and kick his frustrations. So far time outs to chill and learning to apologize are working.
