Laurel has her first ear infection! I don't know if I should feel bad for her, or if I should feel bad for me. She spent all last night yelling loudly unless I held her upright in my arms, while walking around the bedroom. This is very exhausting work for a mama who wanted a good night's sleep before a big job interview. Luckily, M took a half day and took Laurel to the doctor's, so I could properly primp myself. Now we have to hold Laurel down twice a day and squirt a vile, pink liquid down her throat. Naturally, she loves this even more than the saline nasal spray that we were using on her over the weekend for her runny nose.

Hopefully she'll be on the mend soon, and I can resume my night weaning efforts.

Sean had multiple ear infections during his first year of life, so I know what you're going through! They kept giving him different antibiotics each time...he liked some of them and couldn't stand some of the others! I personally liked the ones where doses only needed to be given twice a day instead of 4 times a day. Hopefully, this will be her only one!
