Previously, Jace has been spending 99% of his time eating and sleeping. But lately he’s starting to be awake for sliiiiightly longer. It’s fun because he’s usually in a pretty happy and alert mood for a few minutes when he first wakes up – before he decides he’s hungry…. Makes for some cute pictures!
In one of the last posts, I mentioned that reflux is common with premature babies, so our pediatrician recommended getting a crib elevator. It’s a foam wedge covered in plastic (that we then cover with a thin blanket) designed to keep his head above his stomach. Here’s a picture! It does seem to help with his reflux – when he can stay on it! Adam and I call the elevator the “hill”. Jace isn’t very still when he sleeps, so he has a tendency to end up at the bottom of the hill. Not very helpful for the reflux, but still pretty cute!
