Luckily, Sienna is a phenomenal sleeper. Lately, she's been sleeping 11-12 hours straight through the night! After a couple bouts of teething, we've been enjoying a wonderful string of good night's sleep. Last night, however, we fed Sienna something new with dinner. She had a few pieces of roasted zucchini. Apparently, the zucchini (in addition to several green beans she'd eaten early in the day) upset her stomach. She woke up a couple times and cried like she was actually in pain! Since she's not much of a crier, I knew she really wasn't feeling well.
When she woke up at 11:00 pm, I had just drifted off to sleep. I woke up quickly and disconnected my pump before dashing into her room. Here's my dilemma with the pump... several of my cozy pajama pants don't have pockets. When I'm wearing them around the house, I'll usually stick my pump in the band of my underwear! This works fine when I'm sitting around and relaxing. When Sienna wakes up and needs some extra rockin...
A few weeks ago in a telephone conversation with my mom, she mentioned that one of my sisters had been having some problems with her stomach for the last month or so. Being concerned, I called my sister directly to talk to her about what was going on.
"I don't know," she said. I'm eating a healthy diet, but for the last month or so I've had a lot of diarrhea and even some vomiting. And my stomach hurts so much after I eat that I just don't want to eat anymore."
"What are you eating?" I asked.
"You know, healthy stuff. Fruits and vegetables and high fiber bread."
I explained to her that a healthy diet isn't healthy if it's making you sick. And if it's making you sick then you have to do something to figure out what is causing the symptoms. First, change what you're eating so that you can eat and get some nourishment into your body. And second, make an appointment with a gastroenterologist to discuss the problems.

Can Are my frequent headaches and stomach pains related?
Hi, I am a 21-year old female who suffers from many headaches. It seems like I have been battling headaches for as long as I remember. When I was younger, I would get such bad headaches that I would cry all night long because I was in so much pain, enough that I wouldn't get any sleep. At that time, my family doctor told me that the cause of my headaches was my lack of vision and that I needed glasses. Now, I have been wearing glasses for over 15 years, and my headaches are still very present. And that's the least of it because I often get very bad migraines as well. They are bad enough that I feel dizzy, nauseous, and basically I am in a lot of pain. Light bothers me, loud noises bother me, and etc. For a 21-year old, I may be wrong, but it doesn't seem right. I shouldn't be getting so many headaches/migraines right? It's almost daily now, and that's not all as well. Now when I get my headaches, I have a ...
