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.


  1. Yep, here is to a better night friend! Those nights that we are up are tough...especially by about 3pm the following day...I get so tired I am nauseated at times.

    Tell Shannon "hi"!

  2. Oh how I remember those days all too well! We often had to wake The Superhero to force feed him pudding, juice, or cake gel. He did not do any of them in his sleep. :-(

    Sorry you had a rough night! I am SURE tonight will be better!

  3. you will get to the point where he will drink juice in his sleep. AND he wont even remember it in the morning. :) GOOD TIMES!

  4. Lows at night = sleepy days!
    Nate doesn't wake up for late night pudding and juice fests in his bed. It's nice that one of us gets to sleep through it. :)
