Rumblings in the Tummy

Last Thursday we began to give Magdalena a different formula, which gave her the same nutrition but was a different brand name. This did not go over well with her little tummy, and since then has been making her not feel well. And yesterday I decided to switch back because she was obviously upset. She has cried until she can cry no more (her little cries are so sad sounding), so now it is just a matter of waiting until the old formula clears out of her system. Yesterday Noah and I missed her because she had to sleep a little more than usual, and her little personality was just not as upbeat as it has been.

We always enjoy it when Magdalena gets to experience "normal baby" things, but knowing that her life may be shorter than some we don't want her to live uncomfortably for even a moment.


  1. Praying for her tender tummy issues. So sorry your precious little one isn't feeling her usual self and praying she feels so much better soon.
    God bless,

  2. prayers for that lil tummy - when r took formula it could only be the 100% ready to feed: no water, no shaking, no powder and bless his heart he still projectile spit up so much and lived on mylacon drops and caraway seed: guess that is the main reason I kept on nursing for so long: I couldn't afford 10bucks a bottle that only lasted 24 hours - but I digress - back to the: so sorry she's got a tummy ache we definitely want her to feel better soon.

  3. I don't blame you for not wanting her to hurt. I don't want that either! Yay mom for making the best call you could on what to feed her...

  4. What a sweet baby girl. I am new to your blog but am so touched by your sweet family and will be praying for happy tummies and precious time together.
    Love, Gillian

  5. I am hoping and praying that the old formula will clear out and she will be more comfortable with the old. With Annabel, and others who are surviving, lots do have tummy troubles. We say an alien lives in Annabels tummy. Praying for her and peaceful days.

  6. Prayers and love for your family. I have a granddaughter Magdelena Mae Morrison born May 5th, also with Trisomy 18.
