Oh, Pauline, I know how you're feeling. Meghan has her shots next week too. You know, I'm seriously considering postponing them until this other stuff is under control. I'm wondering how we'd know if she had a reaction to the shots if she's already having issues. We'd be off schedule, but I don't think a month delay would have too many health consequences.
I'm going to try the doidy. My bigger two kids don't drink well from regular cups yet, they're very messy, so I might just try it for all three of them!
We can't start a 4 hour EASY yet, but a lot of babies grow out of the reflux eventually anyway, so at some point we'll probably get there- who knows when, though. She is on more of a 3.5 hour schedule. Occasionally she'll push it to 4 hours. I've started to wait until she "tells" me she is hungry for most of the feeds, figuring she'll take a bit more if she is actually hungry. I still cluster feed her at night so that she'll get 6 feeds in a day.
