Overnight lows suck!
Ok, really. He is 19 months old. When he sleeps, we let him sleep. Thats how all parents feel about babies. If they are asleep they are happy, and more importantly, not crying. So you never wake a sleeping baby, right? So why does his body choose 3:45 am to drop to 104 in a falling pattern. Doctors orders dictate that we treat anything under 150 overnight. I gave some icing hoping to not wake him up all the way. Internet surfing at 4:00 in the morning was surreal as I waited the 15 minutes for carbs to kick in. At 4:15 he was only 120. In the end, I consulted Shannon, who decided to rock him with a bit of juice. He woke up at a respectable 206 later this morning. Exhausted, unhappy with D, but at work none the less. Tonight will be better, I know it.
