- down my front
- down my back
- in my handbag
- in my shoe
- in the fireplace
- all over my friend in Starbucks (thankfully she is also a mum of a preemie and was very understanding. We are still talking)
Then there’s her 21 month old big sister’s reaction every time she throws up: “Oh no. sh*t”. (I’ve no idea where she picked that up???!!) “That’s right, oh no sick. Your little sister got SICK.”
While funny reflux is not, I realise that sometimes a sense of humour works best for me. I’m still figuring it all out but here’s my take on reflux so far:
Xtracurricular activities – accept limitations due to the amount of time you’ll spend feeding & keeping your baby upright. You can use this time to catch up on your digital correspondence. Reflux related (Surviving Reflux Ireland Facebook page or The Reflux Bible app are good) or otherwise.
As we continue to navigate our way through this feeding journey, the experts say, like fine wine, reflux gets better with age. In the meantime, and while I wait to arrive at this better place, I can’t help but think….. thank god for wine.
