The first 48 hours
This casting thing is a little harder than I thought it would be. I honestly thought it would only really be inconvenient for me...yeah a little selfish I know. The little man has been having a really hard time adjusting to the cast. The first 5 or 6 hours he was good but once he realized it does not come off, he started screaming. That night he slept for 30 min then screamed for 30 mins...all night. The morning I dug out the infant Tylenol I was given at my shower (thank you Tim and Sarah!) and started giving him half the dose he should get. After trying all day...and failing...I went up to the full recommend dose. That stuff is magic! He slept from 8:50pm to 3:44 straight! We are still trying to figure everything out but I think he is finally getting used to the cast. The good side of all of this is that I sewed him some super cute baby leggings to protect his bare leg! I love my sewing machine!
