Where did our good sleepers go?

The past 3-4 nights the babies have not been sleeping very well at night. They have been coughing like crazy and waking each other up. It seems like by the time we got them all settled down and back in bed someone else was coughing and another one was mad that he/she was woken up and started crying. You could tell that they didn't feel good so we had our home health nurse check them out this morning and she suggested Matthew and Cameron be seen by their pediatrician.

We are so lucky to have a great office to bring the babies to that always is accommodating to us. We got in right away and after the babies were checked out they were diagnosed with bronciolitis. Thankfully they get the Synergist shot that prevents them from getting RSV or else things could be much worse for them since they are preemies. Chances are all four of them will be coming down with it because the doctor said that it is contagious and they probably got it from one of the other kids having a common cold.

This week hasn't been a big weight gain week for the babies but they are all gaining!
Matthew is now 14 lbs, Brady 16 lbs 13 oz, Cameron 13 lbs 14 oz, and Aubrey 11 lbs 14 oz. Looks like Matty and Cam will be going into size 2 diapers this week!

  2. Oh it is so hard when they are sick because they just don't sleep like they used to. It breaks my heart when my girls are sick and I can't do a whole lot for them besides rock them back to sleep. I hope it passes quickly and you can get your sweet babies back.

  3. Sorry to hear about the bronciolitis. Yup, don't be surprised if they don't share it with their sibs. Unfortunately, you'll probably have a few more rough nights, so grab those naps whenever you can.
    Great news about the weight gain! Whatever you're feeding them obviously works well. Doesn't that make you feel good?!
