Dr's Visit...

Well... Recently Kalila hasn't been feeling all that well. Wasn't anything huge so we hadn't gone in for it, doing what we could at home & hoping it'd pass... but yesterday her voice started to go. Scared us pretty good & we decided a dr's visit might be in order. We were thinking this weekend, but this morning we moved it up. 

Unfortunately her dr wasn't in today... Very sad. We like her a lot... But we saw one that we've seen once before (out of 2 others we've seen there, and I'm glad it was this one & not the other) and it went really well. 

Apparently there's a mild virus going around... most (if not all) of her symptoms line up with that or could be caused by it. Not fun, but just keep doing what we're doing... including let her eat whatever/whenever she wants lol. Yes the dr actually brought that up.... 

But.. when she looked at her throat she found Thrush (yeast). First off, so glad she's not nursing anymore lol. The dr didn't prescribe anything, actually gave advice that made me very happy... wants us to just try having her eat yogurt first. What's funny about that Kalila was begging for it this morning (we were out). She also said the voice thing could be caused by this... and if she's still horse in 2 weeks then we need to come back in. 

Big relief.. glad its nothing serious. 

Beyond that, have to write a little about the waiting room visit.  Kalila surprised us all... they have kid chairs there in diff colours... and this pattern on the floor that has most of those colours on it. Well Kalila moved the chairs to sit them on the matching colour! After we got them put back (lol) we sat her down w/ a pen & paper and she drew while Baba played sodoku on his phone and I read some of the baby magazines (and watched her of course).  Those surprised me too... They didn't have the one I like (of course) but the mainstream ones that usually bother me. This time there was several decent articles on breastfeeding in there (including one mentioning LAM), coupons for BumGenius AIO diapers, adds for Thirsties, Moby Wraps, and Milkies. Seriously my jaw about dropped! Of course they had to throw in some very bad diaper change advice... To be fair they were doing good until they got to the section on intact boys. Not my fight, but still bothered me because its advice that could hurt them... Anyways, just had to mention the whole thing because overall it was nice to see more stuff like that.

Something I do with Layla when she doesn't want to eat yogurt is mix 1/2 yogurt and 1/2 milk. She drinks it a lot before bed. You can mix in fruit juice or something if she wants it to be sweeter.

Thats a good idea (thanks)! Thankfully Kalila LOVES yogurt though... She was actually asking for some this morning before we went in lol. We'd run out though. Its so hard keeping it here..
